I realized the other day that there are a few pictures I have taken of things that no longer exist. Here are a few that jump to mind, and then the story of what happened;
One of my very first HDR images with my old Canon S3is. Just a few short months after this picture was taken the old schoolhouse burned to the ground while I was away in Bermuda. Never heard conclusively what happened but many believe it was arson. Such a shame, a great old building.
The next two were from photographing the same week during the Tall Ship parade in Bermuda 2009 celebrating Bermuda's 400th birthday.
The first to go was Canada's own "Concordia"
Just 1 year later she was gone. Sunk off of Brazil but fortunately everyone survived.
During that same Tall ship parade I got some great shots of the "Bounty"
Lost in Oct 2012 during Hurricane Sandy with the loss of two people - http://www.cnn.com/2014/02/10/us/bounty-shipwreck-ntsb-cause/ (such a terrible photo to see in the article)
and the last one that jumps out at me is the Club Med in Bermuda as seen at the bottom of the screen from this Ariel shot over Bermuda. Thanks John for the plane ride!!!
