As I mentioned in the previous thread wherein three intrepid Dopers planned the expedition to Bannerman Island (which is actually called Polepell Island), I forgot the battery for my digital camera and was left only with my medium format film camera, and didn’t really bring enough film to take pictures of everything. But, never fear! I have processed the negatives and scanned the pictures that came out well, so here they are! These are all low resolution, compressed images. If you want hi-res versions, email me and I will be happy to send them your way.
On the boat, approaching the island, in the distance
…and closer (and very underexposed, sorry.)
A view of the side of one of the structures - I think this is the residence building.
Another view of the castle from the water, this time as we were leaving.
Farther away, with a view of the castle and the dock.
The front entrance of the castle, in all her glory. Notice that you can see through the windows to the other side; the floors and walls burned in a fire decades ago.
One of the guard towers in the river. The other one collapsed and is swimming with the fishes.
Some tourists looking down a ridge from the back of the castle.
The front of the castle again, with some other ruins in the background.
Little Nemo’s ass, left, and our tour guide, Tom, right, and a girl with a teddy bear, outside the residence building, which is seperate from the main castle.
The view down the Hudson Valley, towards West Point, from the back patio of the castle.
A view of the castle from the back.
I hope you like 'em.
