PHOTO: LUIS MARDEN, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC CREATIVE Glove Story A metal-mesh glove "like a crusader's gauntlet" protected photographer Luis Marden's hand while he changed flashbulbs during a shoot in Mexico's Yucatán. "Up From the Well of Time," the longtime Geographic staffer's story on the region's Dzibilchaltún cenote, appeared in the January 1959 issue of the magazine. Marden learned the hard way that such an accessory was necessary when working in the deep. (His dives at Dzibilchaltún reached depths of 144 feet.) According to notes that accompany the photo: "Once while Marden was diving in the Mediterranean, a flashbulb imploded under water pressure and nearly cost him his thumb." ---Margaret G.
