20,000 Leagues Under the Sea… and Visitors to the Blog

Torch, Louisville, KY 2009

In 1870, the French writer Jules Verne depicted the undersea world he saw within his mind’s eye in the classic novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. In my work I strive to depict the mysteries of the deep through my jellyfish portraits, and capture and exhibit that which I see in my own mind’s eye topside.

Since launching this blog I have enjoyed a very loyal, and steadily growing readership. Using the Verne analogy, I wanted to express my gratitude for the now 20,000 visits to the Blog, Adventures from Behind the Glass. Only in cyberspace can you have so many visitors to your home, and not have to worry about cleaning the carpets.

I appreciate the support of those that have been here from the start as well as the new followers that join the adventure after each post. I will strive to continually post new images, which I hope exhibit the wonderment described by the 20,000 Leagues narrator Professor Pierre Aronnax as he detailed the adventures of Captain Nemo and friends when he said: “A strange twilight world opened up before me, and I felt as the first man to set foot on another planet, an intruder in this mystic garden of the deep.” To describe the feeling I have when creating images, I couldn’t have said it better myself, not even 142 years later.
