Crawley Edge Boathouse.....

Sometimes when you've lived in a city for so long you don't see things that are right under your nose. It was only when I stopped on Tuesday to take the picture of Eliza that I fully noticed the old boathouse, and yet it's one of the most photographed images in Perth. Just a little further up from The Royal Perth Yacht Club on the Swan River the bright blue with white trim boathouse sits at the end of it's own little pier, it was originally constructed in the early 1930's and refurbished in 2000's. It's the kind of image you can have lots of fun playing around with and I've seen many different perspectives and varying shades of blue, I decided to keep it fairly simple and went with the above.....!! Big storms in Perth today, hope the sun is shining in your part of the world.....
