Fremantle encore et fini.. until the next time!



A few last shots from our trip to Fremantle last week. Above the view of High Street looking down from the Round House built in 1830 and the oldest building still standing in WA. High Street is lined with heritage buildings therefore a favourite of mine.. I've lost count of the number of shots I've taken of the blue fishing boats below in fisherman's wharf they are so photogenically impossible to resist :)


The sculpture below, The Jetty, a collaboration between Fremantle sculptors Greg James and Jon Tarry commemorating the early fishermen who worked hard in dangerous conditions, is a huge draw-card for visitors to the harbour..  
 

If you look between the green lighthouse and the signpost you will see the first glimpse of the colossal container ship coming around the corner here... it's actually just another gratuitous lighthouse shot :)


... and to finish, testing the fire hoses off shore.. at least that's my theory and I'm sticking to it :) I'm off to a Fringe World show tonight, "Exposing Edith' .. looking forward to it very much, tell you all about it tomorrow. Have a good Wednesday, take care and stay safe...

  3. Such a fascinating street view in the first photo. And the collection of blue boats is most appealing.

  4. You're making me want to be by the sea, though maybe not in your current temperatures!!! Love the first and third shots in particular and that sculpture is great! It sort of rings a bell actually, where on earth have I seen it before?

  5. Love the sculpture and the summery shots, Grace! We are up to 0˚C and snow so it is a warmish winter wonderland which will probably be melted by tomorrow night. Strange winter for us.

  16. I love pics of boats/ships....I don't know why. I have never been around water much. Maybe that is why I have a a thing for them. Oh, and I love that first shot.

  21. I am completely fascinated by that street scene in the first photo. What a wonderful street. It's so perfect it looks like a movie set. I also love that statue of fisherman. It looks very realistic.
