We got out underwater camera film back the other day. I laughed…because these pictures. They are anything but the amazing underwater pictures I was expecting.
You know the type -the ones that look amazing and completely capture the awesomeness that is under the waves. I’ve seen them all -I know what I was looking for -and then what I got? Well, they just made me laugh. But also because they sort of make me happy. The time spent snorkeling (while challenging!!!) was awesome.
I am probably dating myself but if you remember using disposable cameras (and waiting for the film to get developed) you will have a general idea on what we were up to. But you also have to remember that we had big rubber gloves on, so navigating the camera wasn’t exactly what one would call…easy. There were a lot of shots of the glove!
I kinda want to go back, you know?
This guy was a really cool shade of purple when you looked at him under the water -almost like a neon, glow in the dark color. Of course the picture just shows a little purple blob. It was a sea urchin, for those wondering.
An attempt at a thumbs up
Under the sea! See?
While the hardly counts as “Under the sea photography” -I think I am going to work on brushing up on my “on land” photography before I attempt anything….well, professional. So this will have to do for now.
