This image is part of the current exhibition, entitled “Sentinel of the sea”. You can see next to the image is the blog post about the “Sentinel” (a historic shipping marker), seemingly standing guard over the cliff top, facing out to sea.
To my surprise several people at the exhibition have pointed out the “face” in the tree next to the shipping marker. Once you spot it, its hard to miss.
I like to think its a guardian. A keeper of the secrets and stories of the harbour. A face endlessly looking out to sea, eternally keeping watch and hoping for safe passage.
Sometimes photography captures unexpected things. Let me know if you spot the face.
