Ray: A Life Underwater

Ray: A Life Underwater from Danny Cooke on Vimeo.

A rogue with an eye for salvage - and the ladies - Ray: A Life Underwater is an affectionate portrait of one man's deep sea diving career, told through his extraordinary collection of marine artefacts. Like a modern-day pirate, 75-year-old Ray Ives has been scouring the seabed for treasure his whole life. The former commercial diver has plundered the deep for over fifty years, bringing to the surface anything that glittered -- even gold. In a shipping container near the water, Ray tends his museum of cannon, bottles, bells, swords, portholes and diving gear. He even still takes to the water in a 1900s diving suit. Ray can be found most days at his museum at Yacht Haven Quay, Plymouth.

Architectural Antiques Exchange

It has been a long time since my last post, so lets get this started again! I've been staying in Philly the last few months and taking lots of pictures. This was my view from the top floor of the Architectural Antiques Exchange.
