It is not easy when you are getting close to your death bed at the ripe old smelly age of seventy to commit yourself to exercise and getting the body just that little bit more fit, but that is just what I did this morning when I walked from Beacy to the Freo CBD and back.

It will probably take me a week to recover from this madness and that is probably why my nickname is Loopy. ; >).

I took these two photos of the colours of Freo while I wandered around and also the one in the blog post above this one about the paving trial at Kings Square.

Here a couple of photos I took this morning of the colours of Fremantle.

The first one is of the umbrellas at Bathers Beach House, and the second one is a detail of a massive RoRo vessel that brings thousands of vehicles to Fremantle Port.

ADDING FREO COLOUR TO YOUR LIFE

Let me put some Freo colour in your life!

Photography for me is about finding beauty in the ordinary, seeing those little gems most people miss because they are not great observers. Being in the moment has been swapped for constantly being on the mobile phone and checking text and Facebook messages, not for me though as pounding the streets is a bit like walking meditation and total concentration of finding new images in the daily routine of life.

These photos were taken in the Fishing Boat Harbour on this glorious autumn morning.

Let there be light!

COLOUR IN THE DAY KEEPS THE DOCTOR AWAY

I often wonder about the lack of colour on new buildings, as I believe there needs to be contrast between the mainly white concrete buildings. A splash of colour here and there will make a lot of difference. Whilst I enjoy some of the very large new mural artworks in Fremantle I would not like to see it becoming common practise on a large number of buildings because that would be over kill.

I had a photo shoot in Subiaco yesterday and noticed how on a basically bland building they covered the street-level car park with these colourful panels that have a lot of small holes in them to allow fresh air to get in and car fumes to escape. It makes a big difference to the pretty boring building and streetscape I believe.

Bright, colourful and creatively designed buildings become an attraction and create a sense of beauty and well-being, so let’s have a bit more of it.
