Weekly Photo Challenge: Two Subjects


Bronze statue of a fisherman stacking baskets at Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour

Fremantle is a city in Western Australia, located at the mouth of the Swan RiverFremantle Harbour serves as the port of Perth, the state capital. Fremantle was the first area settled by the Swan River colonists in 1829. It was declared a city in 1929, and has a population of approximately 25,000.

The city is named after Captain Charles Howe Fremantle, the English naval officer who had pronounced possession of Western Australia and who established a camp at the site. The city contains well-preserved 19th-century buildings and other heritage features.

Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour is a commercial marina which provides large sheltered mooring areas and support services to the Fremantle fishing industry. The harbour is surrounded by a well established tourism precinct, housing restaurants, a brewery, short stay accommodation, function facilities, high speed jet boat rides, charter sailing tours and the Western Australian Maritime Museum Shipwreck Galleries.

For this weeks challenge and my two subjects I have chosen to show you this image with a bronze statue of a fisherman in the foreground and fishing boats in the background.
