The sculpture 'To the Fishermen' created by Fremantle artist Greg James commemorates the local fishermen who started the fishing industry in Fremantle, often under dangerous conditions. It is one of my favourite of the many Greg James sculptures around WA. The memorial incorporates '12 timber columns with the names of 608 fishermen taken from pre 1947 fishing licence records, who pioneered the industry in Fremantle, both men and women are equally honoured for their pioneering spirit and the hardships endured'..
The blue fishing boats in the harbour are super photogenic at any time of the day, this is the first time I've seen them in the shadows of the sun coming up..
Below looking down Fremantle High Street from the Round House at 6.30am hardly a creature stirred :) but the aroma of freshly ground coffee wafted reassuringly up from Chalkys Espesso Bar, down there to the right.. we may have been the first in for coffee and breakfast but by the time we left the cafe was buzzing, I should have taken a pic of that :) Have a good weekend, take care and stay safe..
