STANDBY!



This vibrant 'fire-engine' red mural in Mount Lawley by multi talented Perth artist Daek William whose work you have seen here many times, impossible to forget this astounding endeavour, was commissioned by three of Perth's finest career firefighters from the Perth Fire Station, brings back happy memories of a certain calendar :) who three years ago opened a now hugely successful cafe aptly named Engine Room Espresso. Kudos to William who was still painting when I took these shots yesterday on an unbearably hot and humid day, I look forward to making a return visit when StandBy is up and running. Have to say this was a brilliant start to my week! Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe... p.s. it's a happy Australia Day holiday today!

  1. A very cool mural and that's the kind of firefighter we need; one who carries the tools of her trade on her back! :)

  11. Great mural Grace. It captures the essence of firefighting. Then, I'm not biased just because I spent about 20 years in the fire service and fought to get the ladies in rather than the old guys that tired to keep them out and who thought they could not do the job.
