Memories of the Endeavour by Larry Lingard-Davis

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

This is just one in a collection of images of the “Endeavour” that I have resurrected from my shoebox.
Back in 1993 I was on a boat greeting the “Endeavour” as she came through the heads of Port Phillip Bay here in Melbourne.
I took these of her stern as we were mobbed by every ship and boat in the bay……..

I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.
I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.

    A stunning shot
    exceptional with the other sailed vessels in the back ground!
    Great painter’s effect!
    Chookas! ♥

  • A bit of blemish, but it’s still good.

    I don’t notice a blemish – perhaps the grey patch to the side which I took to be darkening clouds of either an approaching rain storm or a passing one!
    all good to me!
    Chookas! ♥

  • In actual fact, they are darker greying of the clouds. But I might see if I can correct it…?
