Men standing on the vehicle bridge of a RoRo vessel at Victoria Quay that is offloading hundreds of cars at Fremantle Port today, while the sun sets behind the cranes on North Quay.

The humidity today was more like Bali or Bangkok than Fremantle, but no matter what the weather is every day in Freo is a beaut one.

VERY QUIET IN FREMANTLE PORT

I assume it is seasonal but it is very quiet in Fremantle Port at the moment. There was not a single ship in the harbour this morning.

I haven’t seen a cruise ship for a while either, although we were expecting around 60 of them this summer.

Took this photo of the Leeuwin and Maritime Museum yesterday at sunset.

EAST STREET JETTY SUNSET

Photography is soul music for me. Whenever I feel a bit down I go out and try to find good images. Taking creative photos makes me happy.

I took this one at the Fremantle East Street jetty today just before 7 pm.

COLD MORNING AT FREO RAINBOW

If you thought it was cold this morning for a summer’s day when you woke up you are not wrong. I should have put on a jacket when I went out at 6 am to take photos of the Fremantle Rainbow sculpture.

According to BOM the Perth/Fremantle region had last year the coolest 12 months in a decade and the coldest winter in over 20 years, so stay warm and hug a loved one, or a stranger if you are brave enough. :>)

Alternatively get a nice coffee or tea in one of the many great Freo cafes! I just did at the Moore&Moore cafe where I was served by the lovely Persephone and Hannah.

FREMANTLE LONGS SHOTS

Posted in fremantle, photography, tourism by freoview on December 28, 2016

 

I went for a walk around Fremantle this afternoon only armed with a 300mm lens, just to keep my eye in. One can often become a bit lazy with all those zoom lenses around, so to force oneself to have a good look just with the one focal length lens is a good idea.

Here some of the photos I took. Click on the photos to enlarge them.
