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.

Fallen leaves always create a sense of nostalgia in me. My mind goes back to the autumns and winters I spent in the Netherlands and Germany, and the thick carpets of fallen leaves in the forests, and that rustling sound the dry ones make when one walks through them.

I am a bit of an old romantic, so this morning on my way to Chalkys cafe at the Roundhouse I took these two photos in High Street.

Looking for beauty in everything makes life very special.

Rediscovering the city we live in is a very good way of dealing with the coronavirus social restrictions. I took these photos on my way to food shopping at the Woolstores this morning.

PORT ON SHOW AT B SHED

Fremantle Ports has put up some nice large photos on the walls of B Shed that are worth looking at. It is a shame though that they used a gloss surface for the prints, as there is too much glare to do them justice, and that is the reason I can only publish one of them.

LOTS OF PHOTOS OF FREO’S CAROLS EVENT

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

A lot of people turned up for the Fremantle Carols by Candlelight, and no doubt that was due to the Fremantle Doctor seabreeze arriving quite early and turning the very hot day into a very pleasant evening.

It is community events like this one that makes me go all warm and fuzzy about the city I live in. I just LOVE FREO!

I took a lot of photos, so please share the link on your social media, so people might see themselves in one or some of the shots.

It is a slow news weekend so a short stroll at the Growers Green Farmers Market this morning resulted in these three photos.

STUNNING PEACEFUL PHOTOGRAPHY MOMENTS AT J SHED

 

zzzzz

 

The eclectic and cluttered upstairs gallery at sculptor Greg James’ studio in J Shed at Fremantle’s Bathers Beach is always worth a visit, but even more so now with the Peaceful Moments exhibitions.

There are only five large photos by Amerigo Carello and they alone should be seen by anyone interested in outstanding landscape photography. The three landscapes where the rising sun creates dappled light in the undulated scenery are exquisitely painterly. They are sublime and should be bought for a corporate collection or boardroom! There are also two images of Fremantle. One of the Maritime Museum just before sunrise and a night shot of historic High Street.

There are also very creative collages by Ivan Zuvela, sweet beach landscape paintings by David Moran and of course a variety of smaller sculptures from the Greg James stable by him Lesley Barrett and others.

J Shed is an enigma. It frustrates Fremantle Council because in its desperation of activating the area it appears to overlook the significance of it as a venue where great art has been created for more than twenty years.

On Saturday Arthur’s Head looked like an ant hill with hundreds and hundreds of people, including passengers from the Sea Princess, climbing the stairs to the Roundhouse. The West End of Freo was buzzing.

The Bathers Beach Art Precinct is on the radar of our Councillors and City officers and it is likely it will be an agenda item for the Ordinary Council meeting in April. Will they come up with new creative solutions, such as a sculpture park on the A Class Reserve at J Shed, or change tune totally and abandon the arts precinct idea? It is anyone’s guess at present.

Go and have a look at the J Shed show. You won’t regret it!
