Sir Harry Oakes was an entrepreneurial gold miner who made his millions when he discovered the gold beneath Kirkland Lake. Oakes settled in Nassau with his Australian wife (for tax purposes), and was brutally murdered in 1943. We visited the reamins of his house with friends, and I captured this photo from what would have been somewhere on the second floor of the house.
This is also my first creation of a black and white panorama. I found the lighting in the photos was very difficult, so decided to go with the black and white processing to gain more contrast and depth in the scene.
