Wow, it's August already, and while only another month on the calendar until spring, I can tell from the sound of the birds hereabouts that they know as well. All this has nothing to do with the set of images below. They are of course a second serving of photos taken on a wet day earlier this week when Jill, Kylie and I wandered onto the Fremantle wharf to gawk at three Dutch sailing vessels enjoying a brief stopover in the port while they stocked up on pickled herrings, Edam cheese and supercargo, otherwise known as paying passengers.

The pictures are pretty well self explanatory - lots of ropes and sailor stuff which would appeal to nautical enthusiasts. But there's no prize for guessing my favourite one. It's the HDR image of my beautiful wife Jill standing patiently on the wharf for me while I took its three composites. Flip back two days to 30 July to see another.
