There is not much news around in Fremantle at the moment so I wandered around town for a bit this morning and captured these reflections.

SATURDAY FOG PHOTOS

I could not stop myself from going out again and take more photos of this morning’s fog in Fremantle.

I drove along the Swan river to Blackwall Reach and Point Walter to take these images.

SMOKE HAZE OVER FREMANTLE

Posted in fremantle, fremantle port, photography, smoke, Uncategorized by freoview on May 13, 2017

 

 

I got up a few hours later than I normally do on a Saturday morning but there was still plenty of smog around when I drove onto the Fremantle South Mole.

Fog always reminds me of my youth in the Netherlands where we had plenty of it and where my newspaper run on the bicycle sometimes could take twice as long because I could not see further than twenty metres.

Nice also to bump into Diana on Victoria Quay who was taking photos for the lovely on-line magazine: http://fremantleshippingnews.com.au

FREMANTLE BEAUTY IN THE ORDINARY

It does not take paint brushes to create watercolour artworks as this photo I took in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour on Sunday shows.

When one is observant and looks for beauty these kind of images pop up out of nowhere.

Finding beauty in the ordinary has been my motto in life for a long time.

EARLY BIRDS CATCH FREMANTLE BEAUTY

What a splendid start to the weekend this morning’s sunrise in Fremantle was.

The first Rottnest Express ferry was just entering the port when the sun poked her head above the horizon and behind the Maritime Museum.

It is well worth the effort for anyone interested in getting beautiful photos to get up before sunrise as it is often more stunning than sunsets.

The start of autumn has been brilliant with crispy nights and mornings and cosy warm days full of sunshine and blue sky.

MARITIME MUSEUM REFLECTIONS

There are so many visual aspects to the Fremantle Maritime Museum that it pulls me back a few times a year to discover new angles to take photos from.

I have photographed the modern museum at the port during stunning sunsets and at sunrise during heavy fog, in rain and shine.

Yesterday I shot some reflections.

SURREAL FREMANTLE PORT

There is something surreal about the palm trees and containers in the industrial Fremantle Port and they create interesting photos I believe.

FREO’S WEST END FROM THE TOWNHALL

Posted in city of fremantle, heritage, historic, photography by freoview on March 22, 2017

Here another photo taken from the top of the Fremantle Townhall from the National Hotel to the Maritime Museum and Indian Ocean.

We live in a very beautiful and unique historic city and we need to protect the character of the West End at all cost while supporting and encouraging excellent development in the East of the CBD.

WHAT A BRILLIANT FREMANTLE SUNDAY!

Posted in fremantle, fremantle port, photography, sunset by freoview on March 5, 2017

 

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.
