It looks like the predicted bad weather is moving in quite fast, as this photo taken at about 9.30am at Fremantle’s Bruce Lee oval shows. Batten down, Freo!

THE THERAPY OF FREO PHOTOGRAPHY

Posted in city of fremantle, fremantle ports, photography, rain, Uncategorized by freoview on June 29, 2020

 

 

I dedicate these photos to Neil Stanbury, the very likeable Manager Corporate and Community Relations at Fremantle Ports.

Neil sent me a, tongue-in-cheek, email last week asking if I needed therapy for my puddle reflection photos. I think it is too late for that as I love taking photos of reflections on all kinds of reflective surfaces, as readers of Freo’s View well know.

For me it is all about awareness and being in the moments when I walk the streets of Freo, and not losing touch. It is like a walking meditation for me to hunt for photos. To discover a great reflection is better than drinking a bottle of Grange Hermitage for me. ;>))

The weather forecast for the weekend is wild and wet, and it looked like that for a while this morning when I walked along the Fishing Boat Harbour.

THE WONDERFUL ART OF PUDDLES

I promise! My last rain art photo today of a reflection of the Tourist Wheel ferris wheel on the Fremantle Esplanade.

The weather is clearing and there is a whole new old world out there to re-explore. Visit the pubs, go shopping, enjoy beautiful Freo!

Wonderful to be woken up this morning by very loud thunder, lightning and heavy rain. I love the force of nature!

Wandered around Fremantle for a bit after coffee at Chalkys and took some reflection photos, which I publish upside down. The art of rain.

There are still some quite heavy showers around Fremantle on this last day of autumn, so take an umbrella with you when going out for a walk.

BIG BAD STORM COMING FREO!

storm 1

 

Get ready for more of this on Friday as a big storm is expected to hit us from mid afternoon with heavy rain, very strong winds and unusually high tides.

If you are going away for the WA Day long weekend it will be best to leave in the morning.

GETTING A SOAKING AT BATHERS BEACH

 

storm 1

storm 5

 

Oh my golly goodness did I just get soaking wet at Fremantle’s Bathers Beach! I was taking photos at the Fishing Boat Harbour without realising the boardwalk got flooded, so I was standing in ten centimetres of water. I hope my shoes will dry one day.

Then there was rain and a lot of spray from the massive waves at our city beach.

It is beautiful to watch, so well worth it that I needed to put new clothes on for the second time today.

The things I do for my Freo’s View readers, hey. Some will claim though I only report about negativity. ;>))

IT’S GOING TO BE A WET FREO WEEK

There is more of this kind of weather to come this week, so try to stay out of the rain. We are still supposed to stay at home as much as possible anyway because of Covid-19, so if you don’t have to go to work buy a good book.

Stay safe and well, Freo!
