Portrait of Sir Henry Torrey, Privateer


Sir Henry was a pirate for ten years and worked for the Department of Nottingham Festival in Simi Valley, California, USA. He also worked for  Pirates For Hire as their marketing manager. He “went to events, passed out flyers and had a great time.” He regularly attended events such as the Ventura Pirate Festival at Ventura Harbor .

Sir Henry said that Facebook “is a really good media for pirates. I have over 3000 pirate friends from Florida to Europe and all over the world. And we all have a blast.”

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

  1. Awesome portrait of yet another great pirate. The pose and background are a perfect addition to his outfit and the closeup shot of his flintlock is the best.
