Oh the satisfaction………….. : )

Up earlier than I wanted to get my morning stuff out of the way….. I made us both a quick breakfast as today is my Queens day of labor as well. We both gobbled down our breakfast and went about our way…… my Bride to cook and me to swim and take pictures (I like my ‘job’ much better)….. Just the one boat (2 dives) as the afternoon boat got moved……. seas were a lot calmer and visibility was great~! I am slowly accepting a big part of my picture taking is going to be corralling folks underwater and trying to get some decent face shots. I am delighted to say – that even with only one strobe (the other is @#$%^&*(*&^%$#) I am still getting pictures I’m satisfied folks will be happy with. “People pictures” out of the way – I set in for my favorite targets….. eels, sharks, turtles, etc…… First dive I did finally have a couple of sharks show up…… I had to go ‘deep’ to get to them…… but snagged a couple of fairly decent shots……..

Second dive…… no sharks – but my most very favorite critter…. a Giant Green Moray Eel… (Vera – take note)  😉  I managed a couple of pictures and one short video before the collective crowd of divers was on top of me and I bailed out to get away from them……. I took more people shots and played until time to get back on the boat. It was not until I started my editing….. I came across 1 picture – that I am so proud of that I get goose bumps when I look at it…… [in my opinion] what makes the pictures so special [to me]…. is that not only is the color, lighting, composition and everything perfect – there is zero editing done to it. Zip, naddo, nothing……! Here is that picture:

I am happy with a lot of the other shots…… but absolutely in love with this one. This one will go up on my wall here in the house…… okay….. I’m done bragging on myself now……. More diving tomorrow….. islands kids are supposed to be on that load so I can get a couple of pictures of them……. My strobe that I was having problems with all but died….. so will swing by the dive shop I bought it at and drop it off and voice my displeasure about it…….. so I am shooting everything now with one strobe …… I can still get decent shots… just tougher to do…….. Hope you enjoy the shots from today…… more tomorrow~~~

Good Night Ya’ll * * * * * * * * * * * Thankx for stopping in~!

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
