Myself and several of my classmates did a project for our Photojournalism class on the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy at the Jersey Shore. We’ve worked extremely hard on this for the past two and a half weeks. Footage was shot over a span of two weeks in several shore towns including Seaside Heights, Long Beach Island, and Atlantic City just to name a few. We all compiled our footage together to make this eleven minute documentary which will be accompanied by a book (which is still being worked on). I’d appreciate if anyone took the time to look at this. 

Spread the word, reblog please. 

The Mildred, sailing from Newport to London with basic slag, struck under Gurnards Head at midnight on the 6th April 1912, whilst in dense fog. She swung broadside and was pounding heavily when Captain Larcombe, the mate, two Irishmen, one Welshman and a Mexican from Vera Cruz rowed into St. Ives at 6am - The Gibsons of Scilly

“ John D Spreckels – Brigantine "  …   A  brigantine of 267 tons, was launched at the head of Mission Creek in 1880. She was built by Matthew Turner for Spreckels’ Hawaiian sugar trade. Like most of the vessels in that run, she carried passengers and was heavily rigged, including topmast stunsails which can been seen extended like giant wings in this picture.
