Off to Ascension

Well, I haven't posted for a while but that's because I have a new job over on Ascension Island. Ascension is a British territory dead centre of the Atlantic, almost equal distance between Africa and South America, and it sits just below the equator. Constant warmth, green turtles nesting on the town beaches, clear, unpolluted waters, whale shark, land crabs and numerous seabirds. And I will be looking after them all as a conservation fieldworker and assistant warden. No idea how good internet is there but as it is not quite as isolated, despite being in the middle of nowhere, but I hope to update here often.

Namibian Dinosaur

I have been messing around with a program called efexio and its pretty fun. It allows you to place 3D models into videos or images. I was impressed with how well it worked with some of my shots from Namibia. So here is what Namibia may have looked like with a large sauropod walking around 65 million years ago.

Pangolin Statue 360 View

Here is another item from my collection. A varnished soapstone pangolin from Gabon. I bought this statue in a small Libreville market after some haggling. I had never seen a pangolin in the wild but they interest me. I really liked this sculpture and glad I bought it. A few months later, in Namibia, I was lucky enough to see a real life pangolin. Unfortunately in real life, the pangolin is the most trafficked animal worldwide. The scales are used in witchcraft and traditional medicine. It's a shame such a unique animal is poached for its scales.
