HUGE FIRE AT LIBERAL POLITICIAN MATTHEW HANSSEN’S PROPERTY

Posted in fire, fremantle, politicians by freoview on January 4, 2016

 

A large fire broke out at the property of Liberal party politician Matthew Hanssen this morning on the corner of Central Avenue and South Street in Beaconsfield. The building contains Mr Hanssen’s home, the Hanssen computer business and the Zedz fish&chips shop.

Matthew told me he had no idea how the blaze started but that the property is insured.

It is not a very good start of the year for Matthew Hanssen who stood for federal parliament against Melissa Parke and for state parliament against Simone McGurk. He also contested the Mayor of Fremantle election two years ago.

I feel very sorry for Matthew and the business operators as this is one of the worst starts of the year imaginable.

IT’S A BULLSHIT WASTE OF TAXPAYERS’ MONEY

Posted in fremantle, perth freight link by freoview on July 21, 2015

I am emotionally too touched by this evening’s RETHINK THE FREIGHT LINK forum at the packed Fremantle Townhall so I will leave the writing till tomorrow, once I have cleared my head. What a special community meeting it was. It was very inspiring, uplifting and positive and there was a real sense of confident hope that we all together can create the change that is needed. Well done to all who came and organised it!

So all  am posting this eve are some of the photos I took. I will post another article on the forum tomorrow morning.

FANTASTIC START TO FREO PRINCESS MAY MARKETS

Posted in fremantle, markets by freoview on January 17, 2015

The start of the new Fremantle PRINCESS MAY MARKETS near Clancy’s was a fantastic success with hundreds of people coming to support the new event on Friday evening. The ambience was relaxing and the children had heaps of fun with Fairy Sandie, hoola hoops, bubbles, face painting, etc.

The live music was outstanding and the customers and stall holders were very happy. It will get even better over the next weeks with more stalls and great music.

Unfortunately my Photoshop packed up this morning so I can’t show you any of the photos I took on the night. The old Mac will be at computer doctor BENTECH in Wray Avenue on Monday morning, so now hoping it can be fixed fast and relatively cheap because I am extremely broke and can’t really afford it. ; >(

LIVESTOCK PROTEST SPANS FREMANTLE BRIDGE

Posted in fremantle, LIVESTOCK by freoview on November 30, 2014

An estimated 850 animal lovers took over the full length of the Fremantle traffic bridge this morning to protest against livestock trade from Fremantle port.

The peaceful protest did not interrupt the usual busy Sunday traffic.

I am always on the look out for new angles from which to take photos of Fremantle, so here some photos I took this morning from McCabe street that has been in the news lately because of a proposed planning scheme amendment that would allow highrise buildings near Stirling Highway on the edge of Mosman Park.

MAKE-UP AT MADHATTER

Posted in fremantle by freoview on October 31, 2014

Doing the make-up

Picking up quirky photos because one is in the right spot at the right time is one of the reasons I always carry a camera on my left shoulder and why I love street photography.

I shot this beauty of a lady doing her make-up at the Madhatter Markets on Fremantle’s Kings Square this morning on my way to the ANZAC event.
