4,000 lights on a fig tree!
Spotting my camera, a voice from up in the magnificent Moreton Bay fig tree inquired "would you like me to pose for you luv"! In Fremantle for a specific purpose I wasn't paying the right amount of attention and hadn't noticed the cherry-picker and workmen both below and above in the tree. If you pull the shot in you'll see that those sturdy boughs are wrapped around with fairy lights, 4,000 of them I was informed, to be switched on in spectacular fashion tonight. Won't make it tonight but will get back down there before Christmas, can't miss the sight of this glorious old beauty bedecked in jewels.
Quietly overseeing the project was distinguished Air Commodore Sir Hughie Idwal Edwards, a brave and handsome man, if you pull the image in you'll see that sculptor Andrew Kay has captured Sir Hughie's gentle features so well. It was my first visit inside the church to the right in the shot below, it has a unique feature that I'll show you on Sunday. Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe.. p.s. I'm off to take shots of a most anticipated event this morning.. you won't believe it when I show you tomorrow, it's a little crazy :)
