Shipwreck


Pictured above is the SS Bluejacket, stuck fast on the Longships Lighthouse rocks, December 1898. The photograph comes from the book Shipwreck, a collection of photographs by the Gibsons of Scily, with text by John Fowles. The animator Michael Sporn has more from the book on his Splog.

But the lighthouse is right there! Must have been commanded by Admiral Kitty, I knew his inexperience would be trouble.

Brilliant shot though.

Maybe the lighthouse keeper was out of matches again.
