I am back shooting on the streets of perth hand Fremantle trying to get one or two more keepers for the ‘50 Unknown‘ exhibition at Fidels Cafe in March- April for the FotoFreo festival.

Im pretty sure i didn’t nail any here. I have temporarily lost my touch after shooting landscapes for the last 2 months.

Not exactly street photography or fitting into any project of any kind, as I am still in Albany, along away away from any busy streets. However these  are from a film that has been sitting in my bag for a few weeks and I thought Id better develop it and have a look.

Although it isn’t really what i would call ‘street photography’ the photo above is similar to street fashion photography that has been gaining popularity over the last few years with photographers such as The SartorialistHere is a short doco on the creater Scott Schuman.

Also those of you who haven’t yet seen Bill Cunningham: The Original Street Fashion Photographer, it is a beautiful documentary and a must see!

Fremantle, near Perth in Western Australia where the Swan River and the Ocean meet, is a dream destination for a street photographer when it gets busy, eg on hot Sunday afternoons in summer when everyone is out and about at cafe and bars.

Fremantle was established back in 1829. It has a population of about 2.5 million and is a major fishing port with a rich history, especially the Fremantle Gaol.

It is great to photograph not only because of the colourful walls, side streets and heritage buildings, but mainly because of the unique individuals that live here.

Hi name was Len, and he walked past and asked what i was taking photos of. I asked him for a quick photo and he looked straight through the camera lens without a smile as instructed. Thanks Len
