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.

FREO’S COLOURFUL PADDY TROY

Paddy Troy was a very colourful and powerful person in Fremantle’s history, and the lane named after him has now also received colour with the trees along there painted. I am not sure how painting trees will affect their health but assume it has been done with approval from the City of Fremantle parks department.

FREMANTLE PORT COLOURS

I took these photos in Fremantle port on Friday morning because I loved the bright colours coming together on this heavy weight carrier.

FREMANTLE POTTER SHOWS ZAMBIAN BEAUTY

Posted in art, fremantle by freoview on July 2, 2014

Fremantle potter Njalikwa Zongwe, who owns the Zinongo Gallery on Lefroy Street, is having an exhibition at Gallows Gallery in Glyde Street, Mosman Park. It opens tomorrow, Thursday July 3 at 6.30 pm.

To do research for this show Njalikwa went back to his birth country Zambia and workshopped with his native Ngoni tribe.

If you refuse to go north of the mighty Swan river, check out the Zinongo Gallery in Lefroy Street. It’s just up from Hampton Road.

COLOURIFIC FREMANTLE

Posted in fremantle, photography by freoview on August 30, 2012

On the look out for photos for the Colorific show in October at the Greg James Gallery at J Shed I stumbled across these photos early this morning while watching the offloading of sardines from a tiny fishing boat at Fremantle‘s Fishing Boat Harbour. It was nice to see old fashioned fishing in the light of the Dutch supertrawler now having entered Australian waters at Port Lincoln in South Australia.

YOU LITTLE BEAUTIES!

Posted in fremantle by freoview on February 22, 2012

When nothing goes right and people let one down, finding beauty in little things is important. These photos were taken this morning in Fremantle near the corner of Cliff and Phillimore Street, close to the backpackers at the Bengal and Artsource.

NATURE THE CREATIVE PAINTER

Posted in fremantle by freoview on October 1, 2011

Often when I want to escape from the routine of daily life I go to the Fremantle South Mole. I love the working port and being close to the ocean. There is nothing like it, especially at sunset, when colours become so dramatic, almost unreal. Today quite eerie light lit the Maritime Museum. Nature is an incredible creative painter.

MARITIME SUNRISE

Posted in fremantle by freoview on May 5, 2011

This lovely reflection of the rising sun on the entry glass panels of the Fremantle Maritime Museum, caught my eye this morning. I wonder if the cleaner was aware of the beauty of it.
