My Photo

My home is in Chamberlains, CBS, Newfoundland: a place close enough to sea so that I can go there to watch the glorious sunsets over the bay, and the other infinite variety of sights and sounds that are forever changing, yet forever the same. I'm not as young as I used to be and don't get around much any more, but I've had many wonderful hours of enjoyment with my Yasihca 44 TLR and trusty old OM-2. I've always enjoyed photographing wild flowers, particularly the smaller ones, many of which , albeit mostly overlooked and dismissed as weeds, are exquisitely beautiful. Digital photography, complete with all the magic of its own portable darkroom, has brought a new dimension to the hobby. My OM-2 is retired now, but it is such a beautiful instrument, such a joy to hold and behold, that I don't think I will ever want to part with it. My digital, used mostly, is a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30. Its 35-420 mm Leica zoom lens can really reach out for those hard to reach shots. My photographs are strictly amateurish, but hopefully some have succeeded in capturing something of the moment that inspired them.

.Thanks to the technical expertise of Martha, this website has been rescued and placed back on line. It's ,being the only written eye-witness account of the event, of particular historical interest. It was previously hosted by Geocities who have gone out of business.

Hopefully, my account of the early history of Lance Cove will also be resurrected. I don't have any great legacy to leave behind, except a deep and abiding respect for my ancestors and a longing that they not be forgotten.

Hi Lloyd,
I just finished reading this account of yours of these events. What a read! This occurred about a year before I was born, and it is wonderful to know what had happened in my home country just prior to my birth. Thank you for that sir. Dave

Hello Lloyd
This is an interesting blog and I am pleased to have found it. I visited Lance Cove a couple of years ago and saw the memorial there. It is indeed a tragic story. Bell Island is a pretty place. I enjoyed my several visits there and hope to go again one day. If you had a place on your blog for followers I would join. However, I will continue to look in. Regards, and keep on blogging.
