Photographer's Note

A Dog’s View,
Built in 1859 and named after John Griffiths it’s builder, this small but beautiful structure stands on a rocky point just a stone’s throw from the town of Port Fairy, in south west Victoria.

Easily accessible to visitors, the lighthouse demands to be photographed but a point and shoot approach does not do justice to the moods that can be captured.
The last lighthouse keeper that lived on the island was there from 1929 till 1954. It remained unoccupied for a short time until it was automated.
When I took this shot I was standing where once stood the lighthouse keeper’s little bluestone cottage. If he had a faithful dog & I don’t know that he did, I imagine he would sit outside the front door or by the front gate, look at his master & wait for him to come home.

This would have been his view of this little lighthouse.
