As a teenage boy in the Netherlands I would ride my bike from The Hague to Scheveningen to watch the wildness and incredible power of the North Sea during storms, and I do the same here in Fremantle and drive onto the South Mole every day to watch the mighty Indian Ocean.

It is very wet, wild and windy out there today, so pretty gorgeous really, so here two photos I took around 11am this morning.

LOOPY ACKNOWLEDGED IN HIS BIRTH CITY

Posted in community, fremantle, newspaper by freoview on March 21, 2016

Oud Hagenaar

 

 

I have been called a do-gooder, bleeding heart, lefty, socialist, Greenie, communist, egomaniac, anti-development, alcoholic, Fremantle Council basher, weirdo, heathen, and so on, so it is nice to feel appreciated with a full page in De Oud Hagenaar community newspaper in the city where I was born 67 long years ago.

They distribute 74,000 copies of the paper around the city and train stations and I have already received a few emails from people in Hague, Netherlands who wanted to get in touch with me.

I left Holland in 1969 to start my career as a media photographer in Nuremberg, West Germany and migrated to Australia in March 1982

If only 10% of those who read the article are inspired to visit Fremantle I have done my job at promoting the city I love.
