With the humpback calving season drawing to a close, here’s a look at some of Rita Kluge’s distinctive marine photos from the south Pacific. The Sydney-based photographer fell in love with whales after witnessing southern rights from the New South Wales coastline as they travelled to and from their feeding grounds in the Antarctic. She has since been to Tonga, where humpbacks breed and calf in winter months, to photograph them in the water.

“To look into a whale’s eye is life-changing”, she says. “When you’re right next to dolphins, sharks, whales, turtles – (close enough) that you could reach them for a tickle – it’s not surprising that you just fall for them”.

“You’re kind of in a trance, like a dream. It’s not like the polluted or busy world we live in. It’s just pristine and quiet and pretty and still … well, not if surfing with dolphins, of course”.

“You want to get close but not that close that you lose your gear. I mean, whales know not to hit you, but calves can get very, very playful and you just need to be able to read their body language and pull back in time. When a calf is swimming straight at you, (the guides tell you) don’t move, but watch their tail as they’re still a bit clumsy”.

“Every whale is different. You get a feeling of what to do”.

“To look into a whale’s eye is life-changing and humbling. Well, it’s the same with dolphins but they are mostly very fast in the water. A whale’s eye is unexpectedly looking, just like a human eye, kinda checking you out”.

“You stop photographing and wave to them just to say thank you. It’s emotional, maybe like a blessing. I can’t explain it better, you just have to go and see yourself”.

“Looking through that wide-angle lens you get a shock or thrill to see how close you actually are. We are just little dots in the water next to a 14 metre whale which weighs about 35 to 40 tonnes”.

“I had a totally unreal moment when a 4 metre humpback calf, about 2-3 months old, was going straight towards me. I thought, wow, that’s cool! Then he stopped right in front of me and I started to giggle. He was standing upright, he looked like he was asking: ‘Hey will you play with me?”.

 小さい子供って何をやっても可愛いんだ。たとえ大人の真似をして、ちょっぴり生意気なポーズを取っても、たいていは微笑ましくって許しちゃうよね。

 悪事にインターネットが使われた話は枚挙にいとまがない。

 なけなしの財産をかすめとる詐欺師からネット上での誹謗中傷まで、そのダークサイドについてはあえてここで説明するまでもないだろう。

 だが時に、ネットが良いことのために役立つこともある。

 昔気質すぎてネットに詳しくなかったりクラウドソーシングツールがなかったりするプロの捜査機関や警察が及ばないところで、犯罪を解決した多くの善良な人たちが実際にいるのだ。
