This blue marble

– and yet it spins

At sea, with pelicans

pelicancaseNot even a pelican can break into a Pelican Case. Thank goodness, as the cameras inside are not cheap.datamonkeySomeone has to be the data monkey, and I never really mind the job. On a rare, sunny day I do not need to wear gloves. Underneath that windbreaker are two (!) fleeces and a merino wool underlayer. Yes, this is Africa, still. And freezing cold, misty, and humid most of the time, due to the Benguela current that pulls up right from Antarctica.

Out of all projects sofar this one has taken me furthest out to sea, all the way to the edge of the continental shelf – and in a very small boat which fits 4-5 people, a pelican, and lots of very expensive equipment. pelicanboat(Walvis Bay, Namibia; July 2017)
