CAPE COD
The Ocean Graveyard.

2014


Cape Cod's coastline has been called an "ocean graveyard" from Chatham to Provincetown, a mere fifty-mile stretch of sea containing over 3,000 shipwrecks, due to its dangerously hidden and constantly moving shoals located just off-shore. Indeed, there have been more than 1,000 wrecks between Truro and Wellfleet alone, including that of the Whydah Gally. The famed pirate ship of "Black Sam" Bellamy was laden with over 4.5 short tons (4.1 metric tons) of treasure when she went down in 1717, killing him and all but two of his 145 fellow sailors. Mostly of these photographs are focused on the ocean.

CAPE COD
El fin del océano.

2014


Las costas de "Cape Cod" son conocidas como el cementerio del océano, desde Chatman a Provincetown, justo 50 millas a lo largo del mar se hallan unos 3000 naufragios, debido a su encondido peligro fuera en las costas y a su constante movimiento. De hecho, solo entre Truro y Wellfleet hay más de 1000 náufragos incluyendo el de Whydah Gally. El famoso barco pirata "Black Sam" de Bellamy iba cargado con más de 4.5 toneladas de oro cuando naufragó en 1717, murio él y todos sus pasajeros, menos 2 de los 145 a bordo. El océano ha sido, mayoritariamente, mi centro de atención.
