It’s always an interesting view point to see a ship at berth in port straight behind the Fremantle railway station.
This one is the Canberra class amphibious assault ship and landing helicopter dock HMAS Adelaide.
Check out the new on-line FREMANTLE SHIPPING NEWS magazine: http://fremantleshippingnews.com.au. I think it is very good and a great addition to local Freo media.
It’s not just about the port and maritime issues but about Fremantle lifestyle, food, heritage, architecture, art, etc.
FSN aims to be an online magazine about today’s Fremantle, with content and imagery provided, as much as possible, by interested locals.
The idea for the magazine was born out of daily drives past Fremantle Port and admiring and wondering about the activity of the coming and going ships.
The magazine is run by Fremantle local Michael Barker with assistance from local designers Superminimal, a number of Freo volunteer writers and photographers.
They welcome contact from anyone who would like to contribute to the magazine.
They have a subscribe button at the bottom of the webpage. Subscibers will receive an email notifying them of new articles.
FSH also have a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/fremantleshippingnews/ which will promote new content and an instagram page https://www.instagram.com/fremantleshippingnews/ which will feature shipping and ‘Seen in Freo’ images.
That was a pretty brilliant and perfect Fremantle Sunday.
Nice and warm and great community spirit at the Walk The Bridge Roe 8 Highway protest in the morning.
After that a stunning concert by the Fremantle Chamber Orchestra and the superb Dutch violinist Rudolf Koelman at the Townhall.
To finish it off we had a beautiful sunset so I took some happy snaps at Monument Hill and the harbour.
What a beautiful morning to start the long weekend!
A stunning sunrise with lovely clouds created these photos of Fremantle Port and Point Walter.
WA Minister for Veterans Joe Francis joined RSLWA President Peter Aspinall, Fremantle RSL President Rob Cashman and Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt at E Shed today to collect soil from the port for the new Flanders Fields Memorial Garden at the Canberra War memorial.
Poppies will be grown in the garden in memory of the 12,000 Australians who died in Belgium in 1917 during the Great War-World War I.
Nice to see two tall ships in Fremantle harbour this morning with the Young Endeavour sailing ship joining the SS Leeuwin at B Shed berth.
The smoke haze over Fremantle was not a very pretty sight at all until the Fremantle Doctor blew it away after midday. It was quite smelly and unpleasant as well, so no wonder I’ve got a headache.
I wandered around Fremantle with Midge and Robin yesterday afternoon so that Midge could get used to her new camera before travelling to Canada and got these two nice shots of a Nankin Herron and the sunset at the Maritime Museum.
I love industrial, mining and architectural photography, and am much better at taking photos of man-made things than of nature. It is probably because there is a sense of order that suits my liking of minimalism.
Sadly my times as a commercial photographer seem to have come to an end as I am out of the loop and very bad at promoting myself, so I am keeping my eye in by taking photos every day of things I discover while enjoying the great city of Fremantle and surrounds.
I took this photo at Rous Head at Fremantle Ports this morning.
