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.

I think I must be addicted to photography, because when I haven’t taken any photos for a day or two I have a real desire to go out and try to discover some, so after a busy day volunteering at the Roundhouse I decided to go out again and take some happy snaps of the beautiful sun set at the Fremantle Martime Museum in the port.

BAD BROWSER, WEATHER AND MOOD

Posted in city of fremantle, internet, photography, rain, Uncategorized, weather by freoview on December 15, 2018

 

B&W rain

 

Hello Freo. I am back!

Finally back on line as my browser suddenly did not work this morning, probably due to my 10-year-old Mac. If anyone got a more recent one they want to sell for not too much please let me know.

Not much to report today, but the weather forecast is not too good for tomorrow so I am posting one of my favourite rain photos of 2018 again.

WHAT A LOOKER OF A PHOTO EXHIBITION

Posted in art, city of fremantle, culture, kidogo arthouse, photography, Uncategorized by freoview on December 8, 2018

 

Photo- Elizabeth Looker

 

There is quite a beautiful and sensual photo exhibition on at Fremantle’s Kidogo Arthouse at Bathers Beach that is well worth viewing.

Elizabeth Looker‘s The Spirit and the Flesh are moody, dark, long exposure photos of a female dancer, creating a sense of motion and emotion.

Looker’s photo Life Dancers won the Australian National Photographic Portrait Prize 2016, and she is also one of the finalists for the 2019 NPPP.

The photos for the Fremantle show were taken in Sweden, where Looker worked as an artist in residence at Konstepidemin.

The exhibition is only on for a few more days, so go and have a look this weekend!

A couple of photos I took in Fremantle’s Henry Street. The colourful gate next to a backpackers and and old door juxtapose quite nicely.

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.

LET THERE BE. SUNSET

BE. sunset

 

I was hoping for a real red and soft sun on Monday, because of the bushfire in the northern suburbs, but that did not eventuate.

The photo I took at the yacht club near the Fremantle BE. apartments is pretty nice as well I think.

FREMANTLE GLASS CREATES PHOTO OPPORTUNITY

Posted in architecture, city of fremantle, heritage, photography, Uncategorized by freoview on November 23, 2018

 

Fremantle Glass

 

Driving back from a short volunteer guide stint at the Roundhouse I noticed the ute of Fremantle Glass at the Old Customs House building, which is now part of Notre Dame university.

Of course, as a lover of reflections I did not waste the great photo opportunity.

VERY GOOD SHOTS AT THE MOORES BUILDING

Posted in art, city of fremantle, exhibition, photography, Uncategorized by freoview on November 10, 2018

 

SHOTS

 

If you happen to be in Fremantle’s historic West End go and see the good photo exhibition SHOTS in the Moores building gallery in Henry Street.

SHOTS is an open category show for online photographers and there are some very good landscape and wildlife photos, and others. The poster above does not do justice to the quality of the work, so go and see it for yourself.

The show opened on Friday and will be on until November 23.

JUST ANOTHER SUNSET IN FREO PARADISE

I doubt there is much intelligence left in me, if there ever was any in the first place. Why else would I stand in the freezing cold breeze, trying to recover from pneumonia, and take photos of the dramatic sunset over Fremantle? It’s called stupidity I believe. If only I could remember.

Anyway, gorgeous clouds and I scored big time with all those lovely young chicks from Amaroo retirement village waving at me from the bus.
