Good Saturday morning Freo!

A lot of very heavy showers kept me awake overnight, but I do have an early start on Saturdays anyway for 7am coffee with my good friend Henty.

I took these photos just after 8 am in Fremantle port and the High Street mall.

Melissa Parke 1

 

Delightful and beautiful former federal Labor MP Melissa Parke has done a fashion shoot for Fremantle Velvet Sushi, and she looks great.

Melissa has been wearing the lovely fashion of Freo designer Deborah McKendrick for years, and agreed to do the photo shoot with photographer David Woolley and hair stylist Pink Nakia, while Deborah art directed the shoot.

Velvet Sushi recently relocated from William Street to 5 Bannister Street, opposite the Stablehands cafe. It is a very cosy small boutique, so all you gorgeous women out there, go and check it out!

Notre Dame reflection

 

Here a happy photo to start the Friday with. A Notre Dame University building in Fremantle’s West End reflected in some of the university’s posters.

I took it yesterday afternoon when the sun was shining.

Even after over twenty years of wandering the streets of Fremantle, someone once called it loitering with intent, I always find new images to shoot, as I did this cold Friday morning.

Stepping up for one’s community can be challenging, but it is often a beautiful experience.

Steps at Little Creatures in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour. All that beauty in the ordinary, hey! ; >)
