    Great! I finished up my NAUI OpenWater dive certification in Bonaire. Such wonderful dive sites and clear water. Love your whole photostream. Cheers.

    Helloooo Vince, happy to have you back!!!!
    Your photostream is impeccable and I can’t ever compete with you, my friend!
    Those photos you can consider as diving souvenir of my long dead camera.*Lol It was my first and last diving, my doctor has prohibited any diving after that trip. My brain almost exploded in that occasion after 3 days of diving I lost the movement of my legs for 2 days. Ouch… I’m a fan of your photographs always enjoying your masterful shots!!! :D

    Isn't this amazing , talk about a symbiotic relationship. Great picture.

    Aha, Lia was it the old RS o-ring problem and a big flood?

    Sorry to hear about your misfortune on your dive trip, it is unfortunate that the underwater world does presents a multitude of challenges for photographers, the first of which is staying alive!! Thanks for your kind words regarding my photostream. I hope someday that you might venture forth again into the marine environment, the key is to go slow & easy and enjoy what you see.
