Herbert Ponting

Herbert Ponting’s darkroom (and cabin)

While walking around in Scott’s hut, I had to think of the famous pictures of Herbert Ponting, Scott’s photographer. One of the most famous ones is Captain Scott sitting at his table. The other well known one is of a birthday party of one of the members when they are all sitting at the big table in the hut. When I was standing at the same table, I tried to remember what the picture looked like exactly so I could recreate the picture. Unfortunately I only got this idea when I was there and I had forgotten to bring the pictures. Hopefully we’ll land again next cruise, so I can give it another try.
