Thames Estuary

The Watchkeeper

All lights are switched off on a ship’s bridge to lessen distraction
and enhance night vision. Observed from this dark place the sea
becomes a reflection of one’s mood. This is the landscape of the
watchkeeper, a long way from home and highly tuned towards the
weather and the state of the sea. Across the dim glow of
instruments and navigation lights, thoughts are projected
onto the endless water and unravelling coastline.
