One last full day here in Jamaica. The sun finally came out and I traded my sweater for swim trunks and my snorkelling gear. Stumbled across Tony who took me out to shoot some staged dive shots while I tried to get on top of the learning curve with underwater shooting. I’ve learned so much over the last week, though haven’t nearly had the time I wanted to work on this stuff. But, man, is it fun. I love making photographs, and I love being in the water, the combination is such fun it makes me giggle (when I’m not inhaling water and trying to clear my mask or fight the bouyancy that my, uh, hmm, extra insulation adds. Next time there will be plates on my casing to drop the bouyancy, and a weight belt for me so I can stay put on the bottom. )
Anyways, heading home tomorrow. Thought I’d drop a line and say hi. Can’t believe another year has always passed. If I get around to it tomorrow I’ll post something introspective about the coming year, etc. I get home just in time to fight for a cab as midnight approaches, then three weeks to prep for Africa, sell some furniture, and get Jessie ready for the trip in March.
Right, off to play with the fishes. 🙂 Happy New Year’s to all of you.
