Having a joint interest in photography and things around me, this site seems a perfect nesting area for me. Living on the outskirts of London, fat, in my fifties, falling to pieces rapidly, this might be one of my lasting legacies to the world. Aplogies for the rather grey outlook to some of my gallery, but it is the price you pay for living here. Thank heavens for the slide show which shows pics in their true worth. My photos are here to give an idea and a piece of history to viewers of GE of the area. Likes : Living life to the full rather than just going through it, enjoying the world and all it has to give. Hates: cheats, liars, and anyone that can't be civil. If anyone can tell me what a widget API count is, I'd be grateful. Please people, keep your finger of the HDR button. It doesn't make one an arrtist. If you want to be an artist, pick up a paint brush or pallette knife. Artistic photography is achieved with the use of shutter speeds, light, angles and the like. not that damned button. Well, that's my view anyway.

Hi Brabo, always good to see new visitors here, especially those that enjoy my photos. Yes, London is photographically quite specular with old and new structures such as this and the 'eye'. You need a few trips to get it all in.

Cheers from the UK, Herb

Thank you for your kind comments and greetings to you in California. Rosa.

There are two wrecks here in Dixon Bay and they are a source of speculation since the 1970ies, when they sank there.

They grounded close together, and there are several stories around. Some claim one ship, with a cargo of lumber, ran aground in a storm. The second ship came to assist, and also ended up on the reef. The lumber was off-loaded in a futile attempt to save the ship, and was collected by local residents.

Others say the cargo was marble.

One version maintains one was a Cayman-owned vessel run aground intentionally for insurance.

Rumors persist that the ships were involved in the Nicaraguan revolution, then abandoned.

Longtime residents report that the wrecks were two separate incidents. One did carry lumber; the other carried paint. Both ships caught fire and were abandoned. During an attempt to tow the ships out to sea, they broke free and came to rest in Dixon Cove.
