I don't think I've ever passed the Wesley Church in Fremantle when there hasn't been a young person or two, or more, sitting talking together or on their cell phones. Is it just a handy spot to sit or do those old stone walls draw them in. It is a solid church where not much has changed from when it was built in 1889, except if you look at the now and then photos here, there was originally a low stone wall around the church perimeter which is no longer there..much more approachable. The doors were open which is not always the case, the glimpse inside showed an equally welcoming interior. Somehow I feel that the steadfast durability of this church would bring its parishioners much comfort. Happy Sunday, take care and stay safe..

Fountain reflections in Central Park garden in the centre of the city. It was such a windy day when I took these shots the water was flying everywhere and nowhere all at the same time. Here's wishing you a happy and peaceful weekend, take care and stay safe..

It's the only way to describe Fremantle.. fabulous! The city of art and quirk :) Every time we go there we come across something we haven't seen before. As we did yesterday while walking through Paddy Troy Mall. A bicycle shelter made from old bike frames and a sea container complete with artwork by Ian Mutch last seen on the blog here. Appropriately directly opposite bicycle shop extraordinaire Captain Walker's Bicycles, check the link if you are a bike enthusiast. As you can see it was a grey day, my favourite kind :) Happy Friday, take care and stay safe..

Walking through Underground at Allendale Square in the city last week the scene above through the window of Bellini Hair Styling for Men caught my eye. Three chairs, three mirrors et trois lumières X three reflections.. if only the shop had been open at that time I might have caught three gentlemen sitting in those chairs, that would have been the icing on the cake :) Do you ever take a shot of no consequence.. just because it appeals to you? Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

For more than one hundred years the Horseshoe Bridge above was the connection between Northbridge and the CBD. You might remember me mentioning the Perth City Link project to sink the Fremantle railway line and the Wellington Street bus station leaving the area above open for construction of Yagan Square named in recognition of one of the Noongar people’s great leader-warriors Yagan, also acknowledging the historical and cultural significance of the site. Above looking out to Wellington Street and the CBD and below looking over to Roe Street in Northbridge.
Excellent architectural view here showing Yagan Square tucked nicely into the arms of the Horseshoe Bridge. Below as you enter the square from Wellington Street the 9mt tall sculpture Wirin.
'Wirin' the Noongar word for spirit represents the eternal sacred force of creative power that connects all life of boodja (mother earth)'. Of all the projects going on around Perth at the moment, this bridging of the divide makes the most sense :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

I couldn't decide between a pretty mural I found last week or the exotic beauty discovered here hiding down a smelly, overly graffitied lane in the city.. she deserves a look-see don't you think? The style looks familiar and although I have moved bins before to get a clear shot, this time I wasn't game so didn't get the artist's name. A typical lane behind a pub or club.. rubbish bins, graffiti and smart cars.. keepin' it real! Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe.

"You can't just eat good food,
you've got to talk about it too".. Kurt Vonnegut.
It's true! Breakfast with my skin and blisters
sisters is always a good way to begin the day.. and when breakfast is five minutes away from home at Voyage Kitchen on the coast road.. even better! Breakfast shot below courtesy of Aimee, I was too busy eating mine to take pics :) How was/is your weekend? Mine was hectic, but so pleased with what we achieved. Happy Monday, take care and stay safe..
