Penguin Selfies

While I was in Antarctica, I had a selfie competition with a guy named Brian who I met on the boat. (Hi Brian!)

The point of the competition was to see who could get the best selfie with a penguin, a seal, and a whale.

Seal selfie:

The selfies with the penguins and the selfies with the seals were easy, but the selfie with a whale was hard.

Here I am waiting for a whale to surface:




Lucky for me, I was also able to get selfies with the two ‘penguins’ who hosted Polar Pictionary night:

But then my friend Robert (hi Robert!) and I got to dress up as penguins on the last night …


… so I got the ultimate penguin selfie:

In the end Brian told me that I won, but I’m still pretty sure he did better than me.

    Great Stuff, Eliot. . .Here we only saw dolphins and belugas. . .In the Aquarium in Chicago. We saw show called ‘One World.’ It was magical in some ways, but . . .nothing like what you’re getting. Shakespeare said, “Jealousy, thou green eyed monster. . .” I’m green with envy of you guys being there n Antarctica . . . Have fun and keep the posts rolling.

    Hi Mark, the name of our ship’s captain was actually Captain Beluga! He was Russian. The ‘One World’ show sounds really cool. I like dolphins, too.

    You were my inspiration, Elliot! It wouldn’t have been the same without an Antarctic selfie and you pushed me to get the best. My instagram account thanks you. But I am a little bummed that they didn’t let me wear the penguin costume… 🙂 Happy 2015.
