BEAUTY IN THE ORDINARY RUST

I have told you many times that there is a lot of beauty in the ordinary, so I took up the challenge of making ‘art’ out of rust yesterday.

I took these photos of a real rust bucket in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour late afternoon.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder hey.

There is always something to discover and photograph when one walks around Fremantle with one’s eyes wide open.

I took these photos of my Freo this morning. There is so much beauty in the ordinary!

Leeuwin sunset

 

It is important for our soul and wellbeing to always know that there is more beauty in life than negativity, so here another photo I took on Sunday night of the sunset behind the SS Leeuwin and Fremantle Maritime Museum.

We are blessed to live in such a gorgeous city as Fremantle.

As a photographer finding beauty in the ordinary is my quest in life.

Monument Hill clouds

 

There are some beautiful white clouds over Fremantle, but the sun is coming through and we should have a fine Sunday.

I took this photo around 9.40 this morning at Monument Hill.

YES

 

YES! WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY SPECIAL

The first Fremantle gay or lesbian couple who gets married, once marriage equality has been legislated in parliament, I’ll do your wedding photography for free!

My mate Saff Ali has offered to be the second shooter, so you’ll get two professional photographers capturing that very special day for free.

Saff is the one with the model looks, so at least you’ll have one good-looking shooter at your wedding.

It’s an unconditional offer, so no need to read the fine print.

When it happens email me, so we can have a chat: roel.loopers@iinet.net.au

FREMANTLE VICTORIA QUAY SUNSET

maritime sunset

 

During the summer months the setting sun creates beautiful warm colours on the walls of A and B Shed on Victoria Quay in Fremantle Port.

I love the intensity of the reflecting light and took this photo yesterday around 6.30pm.

FREMANTLE THE ARTY CITY

Posted in art, city of fremantle, fremantle festival, photography, Uncategorized by freoview on October 10, 2017

 

raindrops 1

 

Raindrops on a table at the Fremantle Lapa restaurants in High Street created a nice arty photo for me this morning.

The blue reminded me of my first solo exhibition at the Delaney Galleries in Perth in 1990. The show was all about the magnificent WA sky with man-made objects in it. I took the show to Germany in 1991 at the Keresztes Gallery in Nuremberg, where it sold out.

This year’s Fremantle Festival will revisit an idea I had in 2004 where I projected photos on the Fremantle Port building as part of FotoFreo.

Artist Jo Darbyshire’s projection show Ships in the Night is part of the Freo festival this year and she will project the names of the ships that visited, she recorded for a year.
