Trees make for wonderfully intriguing subject matter. In 1870, a Moreton Bay fig tree was planted in the front lawn of Russell's first police station only a few feet from the shores of the Bay of Islands. It would have witnessed many non-friendly encounters between British settlers and native Maori in the days when Russell, the first permanent European settlement and sea port in New Zealand, was known as Kororareka. Having survived most of New Zealand's existence, this gnarly tree is now admired by thousands of tourists strolling along the promenade. I couldn't resist trying to capture something of the intricacies of its entangled branches.
