COLD AND WET CREATES FREO PORT ART

It was pretty cold early this morning when I took these photos at around 6.30 am on the South Mole.

I first went out of my warm car and took a couple of shots, but the rain came pelting down and created arty images through the side window of the lights in Fremantle Port.

The things I do for my Freo’s View readers, hey! It should be rewarded with some nice hot mulled wine this eve. ;>)

FREMANTLE WATERCOLOURS

Posted in art, city of fremantle, fishing boat harbour, photography, Uncategorized by freoview on May 30, 2018

 

 

I keep telling you that I love taking photos of reflections, so here some water colours I took this morning in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour.

It’s a gorgeous day out there before another storm will hit Freo tomorrow, so take advantage of it if you can and go for a nice long walk!

We live in a very special place and  we should appreciate it much more than some social media posts want us to believe.

FREMANTLE PORT STUNNING SUNRISE

Summer is back! We are expecting 31 degrees today in Fremantle, so get out the shorts, mini skirts and bathers!

The sunrise over the Maritime Museum was stunning and the warm colours a prediction of what the day will be like.

It was very busy at B Shed with many people sailing out to Rottnest Island.

I believe it is going to be the hottest May in 58 years or so, according to the weather news on TV. Enjoy it!

It feels like summer has returned to Fremantle so the Under the Bridge Foodtrucks are doing the same and will be at the East Street jetty today from around 5-9pm for the last time this season.

Great food and great community vibes, plus stunning sunsets at the port.

I love Fremantle’s working port. There is no day that goes by that I don’t drive onto the South or North Mole or go for a wander along Victoria Quay.

I love the always changing scenery of vessels arriving and departing, the sound of containers being put on trucks and majestic huge cruiseliners turning in port on a coin.

I took the photos of this mighty little tug boat yesterday morning just after nine o’clock.

FREMANTLE PORT GETS SHADES

Port shade

 

Fremantle Ports installed two huge shade umbrellas east of the E Shed markets where the old crane used to stand.

Unfortunately the crane was neglected for so long that they had to demolish it a few years ago, and so another part of our history disappeared.

Not sure at all what the purpose of these umbrellas in that specific location is, so we’ll wait and see.

LUCKY TO LIVE IN FREMANTLE

I love early mornings in Fremantle because it always makes me realise how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful place.

To head out onto the South Mole and see the always great Indian Ocean and the stunning sunrises is something very special for me.

….and I love every other hour of the day living in good old Freo as well!

Here two photos I took just before 7am this morning.

We are having delightful early autumn days but that won’t last, so take advantage of the great weather today and have sunset dinner at the port at the Under the Bridge Freo Food Trucks at the East Street jetty.

It’s on from 5 till about 8.30pm, so enjoy it!

SUMMER HAS ARRIVED-IN AUTUMN

It looks like the big G. up in the heavens is getting old and confused because summer has finally arrived, now that we’ve moved into autumn. What a stinker it was yesterday- the hottest day since February last year.

It is not going to be much better today because high humidity will offsett the slightly lower temperature.

Good to get outside around sunset and feel the first quite cool seabreeze at 7pm. That’s when I took these photos of Fremantle Port.
