I hope someone is replicating what William B. Van Ingen did a century ago. I’ve never heard of him before, but I like this sentiment of his related to the murals he did showing the construction of the Canal a century ago: “[a]ny success the paintings may have had, came, I believe, from an endeavor to see with the eyes of the man in the ditch.” Oh for what access he must have had. Getting access I know takes time. Hmmmm . . .
What I’ve seen so far, mariners transiting the Canal seem to love it . . . they wave and laugh and take fotos of local flora and fauna!
