Fantastic - next, to Berlin to study developmental genetics, and write. Then back to the pressure suit project, which will kick into high gear in the Fall.

More Santa Cruz Island

Anchored at Little Scorpion Bay, and some other photos. I have breathed in sea air, tasted the sea again and I have been instructed by a sea lion to depart his fishing grounds! A minute under the waves, examining one of these wonders, and it is hard to come back up to a world of childish politics and short-sighted plans for the 'future'. Somehow, I will be weaving evolution, the natural world, and human history and prehistory into the next thing I write.

Skin Diving Santa Cruz Island

I just shot this photo of starfish clinging to a rock in a marine sanctuary off California. There is a whole domain of marine biology that investigates the fascinating world of the 'interface' between the sea and the atmosphere above the sea. These life forms do just fine at lower tide, exposed to air, as well as at higher tide, when they're completely submerged...

We shot video for a TV project for a week and I think we have some great material 'in the can'. Now, like all TV projects, we see what the Execs think of it :)
