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.

I think I must be addicted to photography, because when I haven’t taken any photos for a day or two I have a real desire to go out and try to discover some, so after a busy day volunteering at the Roundhouse I decided to go out again and take some happy snaps of the beautiful sun set at the Fremantle Martime Museum in the port.

Community and food stalls will be there and the bar open.

LET’S HAVE A SPLENDID NEW YEAR FREO!

Posted in city of fremantle, community, Uncategorized by freoview on January 1, 2019

 

ready to go

 

This is a kind of historic photo because it is my first one of 2019, but of course all photos we take throughout the year record the history of the time we live in. This one shows they are ready to go at Peaches in South Fremantle.

Good news for those who are addicted to caffeine! There are plenty of cafes open this morning, although several are closed as well.

Il Cibo, the Attic and Gino’s were open in the CBD and in South Freo the Roasting warehouse and Callogero’s.

I wish all Freo’s View readers a splendid, remarkable, healthy and happy New Year. Let’s work together to make a positive difference to the city we love!

THE FREO YEAR WE HAD IN PHOTOS

 

 

 

There is not much happening in Fremantle during the Christmas and New Year period, with politics on hold, so I decided to review the year through photos I published on Freo’s View in 2018. Enjoy!

BAD BROWSER, WEATHER AND MOOD

Posted in city of fremantle, internet, photography, rain, Uncategorized, weather by freoview on December 15, 2018

 

B&W rain

 

Hello Freo. I am back!

Finally back on line as my browser suddenly did not work this morning, probably due to my 10-year-old Mac. If anyone got a more recent one they want to sell for not too much please let me know.

Not much to report today, but the weather forecast is not too good for tomorrow so I am posting one of my favourite rain photos of 2018 again.

A couple of photos I took in Fremantle’s Henry Street. The colourful gate next to a backpackers and and old door juxtapose quite nicely.

Here a couple of photos I took this morning of the colours of Fremantle.

The first one is of the umbrellas at Bathers Beach House, and the second one is a detail of a massive RoRo vessel that brings thousands of vehicles to Fremantle Port.

LET THERE BE. SUNSET

Posted in accommodation, city of fremantle, photography, sailing, tourism, Uncategorized by freoview on December 4, 2018

 

BE. sunset

 

I was hoping for a real red and soft sun on Monday, because of the bushfire in the northern suburbs, but that did not eventuate.

The photo I took at the yacht club near the Fremantle BE. apartments is pretty nice as well I think.

FREMANTLE GLASS CREATES PHOTO OPPORTUNITY

Posted in architecture, city of fremantle, heritage, photography, Uncategorized by freoview on November 23, 2018

 

Fremantle Glass

 

Driving back from a short volunteer guide stint at the Roundhouse I noticed the ute of Fremantle Glass at the Old Customs House building, which is now part of Notre Dame university.

Of course, as a lover of reflections I did not waste the great photo opportunity.
