Mountain, Moon, Planet

31 Jan

As we were heading home from our regular Tuesday night quiz I caught a glimpse of the sky doing something interesting.  Unfortunately the photo isn’t amazing, there was a bit too much street light interference but any shot is better than no shot.©2017 Cathy Craig

When I turned around there was a view of the Casino that I had not seen before.  This angle might need some further exploration with my other camera.

Quiz Night

10 Jan

Todays photo topic is Australia’s first legal casino, opened 10 Feb 1973.  It holds a special place in our family history as my father was one of the first croupiers.  I can still remember the strict dress standards from the early days, men had to wear a collar, tie and a jacket.  Dinner there was a once a year ultimate extravagance for us, and not even employees were exempt from the jacket rule, even on a very hot summer night.

Tuesday night is quiz night.  A group of friends gather at the local casino to test our general knowledge against some of the best quiz minds in town.  My how the dress standards have changed.  Jeans and T-shirt is the dress of the day and not a collar or tie was to be seen on this warm summers night.

Bonus item in the shot, a seagull 🙂
