The water has been pretty crappy and cloudy after our big thunderstorm this week. I ended up going out for a sortie with my girlfriend’s brother-in-law, since I offered to take him, and he jumped at it.

I know it has been awhile since I have posted anything, but I have been laying low – taking a break from diving. I have been preparing for next spring, selling off most of my photo equipment, and saving up for a new, more professional rig.

I don’t usually do a lot of work in black and white, but I decided to give it a shot. I always tend to think of black and white and monotone photography as a last resort for photos that don’t work in color, but the truth is that they can really make a composition sing. Some of the photos below have already been on the site in color, and some are completely new.
I recently updated the photo gallery, and just wanted to get it out there that all my top shots are going to be found here: http://www.azur-diving.com/photo-gallery-2/.
Both my rigs are out of commission at the moment, both are currently in the mail, one on it’s way out, and one on it’s way back. Can’t wait!
The Canon D10. It sports a 12 Megapixel resolution, an optical 3x zoom lense, and the DIGIC processor. Add to that the fact that it is waterproof (up to 10m or 33 feet), it does both photo and video, and features some anti-shock capabilities (it can withstand drops of 1.2 meters or 4 feet), and you have a pretty nifty little package.
