Last week’s photo challenge was perfect.
Ken Palumbo’s image showed a quirky bit of Westport. Everyone has passed by it. Almost no one notices it. It’s literally hidden in plain sight.
The photo drew a few quick guesses — close and plausible. But wrong.
Then Lynn Untermeyer Miller, Joelle Harris Malec, Tammy Barry and Kiri Woods all checked in with the right answer.
The shot showed a weird little figure hunched behind the large marble globe at the entrance to Longshore.
You can’t see it from South Compo Road.
Yet it’s visible to every golfer, jogger or walker, though. There’s one on the other side of the entrance too.
How many of us have ever looked?
Here’s a larger — and uncropped — photo:
The little figures — they’re actually “foo dogs” (aka “Chinese guardian lions” are true wonders of Westport. If you know the story “behind” them, click “Comments” below.
