Faces from the deep

November 22, 2010

“It is only at the first encounter that a face makes its full impression on us.” —Arthur Shopenhaur

The faces on this trip have been interesting. There have been tired faces, happy faces, excited faces, and a few stressed faces when weather or technical issues delayed dives. The views of the deep have been mesmerizing, but the video coming back from Jason has told only a part of the story. When we get the specimens in the lab to photograph them, the personalities come out in the faces of the many creatures of the deep.

“So many faces in and out of my life; some will last, some will be just now and then.” —Author unknown

Many of the faces I encountered on this memorable trip will last….
