Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

12 of 12, November 2017 (and Midlands 2017-#6N)

After a busy morning and early afternoon, in which there were things of interest but my mind was a bit too preoccupied for taking photos, I headed northwards with a work colleague/friend of mine for meetings that we have over the next couple of days. Today was one of those bright spring days, and the extended […]

Midlands 2017-#5S

There were some rather spectacular cloud formations as I headed back from a work trip to Launceston today. I stopped at Perth to get a […]

Midlands 2017-#4S

It’s felt a bit strange having so few trips northward this year, after the many visits of last year and the year before. Yesterday I headed up to give a talk for the maths association, and this morning I visited with one of my PhD students.

I’ve been wanting to take a shot like these two for […]

Midlands 2017-#3S

I had a passenger in the car for this week’s overnight trip to Launceston for a meeting, and that always makes me a little more reluctant to stop for a photo (even though this particular passenger knows about my Midlands-photographic habits). On the way back, however, we stopped just on sunset and I took a photo […]

Midlands 2017-#2S

This year is proving to have very few trips northward for work; here it is June, and this is only the second Midlands photo entry. I had a day trip to Launceston today, to meet with one of my PhD students and, later, one of my work colleagues. On the northward leg I was running late, […]

Midlands 2017-#1S

I am, of course, back at work after my Big Trip (which, at the time of present writing, I still haven’t finished blogging about). I don’t anticipate quite as many work-related trips up and down the Midlands Highway this year in comparison to last year, but there’ll still be some and today was the first. Unfortunately, […]

Midlands 2016-#22N

Yesterday’s north-bound trip was my last trip for the year associated with teaching/professional learning (there’s a faculty meeting still to come). As I had a non-work related commitment following my class in Launceston I was driving my own car, which meant I had a bit more freedom to take some detours.

One of the detours was nearly […]

Midlands 2016-#21NS

I have a very miscellaneous collection of photos from this trip, none of them entirely what I was planning.

On my way northward yesterday there were some interesting late afternoon sunlight effects, as the sun snuck through gaps in the extensive clouds. There were some great sights, but most of them were so transient I didn’t even […]

Midlands 2016-#20NS

This week’s evening trip northwards was characterized by rather foul weather. When I stopped to take the first photo it took considerable effort to even open the car door, such was the strength of the wind, and further north there was horizontal rain just to add to the fun. If you look closely at the tree […]

Midlands 2016-#19N

I didn’t manage a photo on the return trip of this week’s overnight visit to Launceston, but on the way up I stopped and got some later afternoon muted light reflections of the willows and jetty in the dam in someone’s front yard.

(I try to take at least one photo on each of my long-distance north-bound […]
