This was the final photo I took on my Walk Around Fremantle as we were heading back to the car park and it just goes to show that you never know what you’ll find in the back streets of Freo 🙂
We were walking along Pakenham Street when I saw what looked like a mini garden area on the side of the road. Mostly surrounded by commercial buildings this scene looked surreal with benches, lots of beautiful greenery and quaint bike stands at either end.
As we had a very hot and mostly patient teenager in tow I barely had time to grab a few shots as we walked past and it was only after a bit of searching on Google maps that I worked out exactly what this place was.
“Bread in Common” is a kitchen bakery which has only been in operation for the last year or so, in fact Google Street View still shows this building up for sale and looking very different. There was no red brick, no garden, just a boring old rendered workshop. Now this place looks amazing, they’ve done a great job renovating the building and turning it into a very successful cafe / bakery and they’re getting some great write-ups n Urban Spoon too. Urban Walkabout have a nice article about them here if you’re interested in reading more about them.
From what I’ve read & seen we will certainly be going back to “Bread in Common” with a bit more time on our hands to try out their menu 😎
For this image, as with all the images in this series, I have used a HDR style with some selective colour masking & local contrast adjustments to create a really punchy image with a bit of character, let me know what you think 🙂
If you’re looking for “Bread in Common” you’ll find them at this Google Map location, just bear in mind that the building looks completely different from the Street View.
