This is a cool pic. Looks like a drawing or computer enhanced. Great work.

Really cool!

Update: The camera owner has been identified - email received from Firefit Canada:

"Hello Mark,
Thank you so much for the email.
Yes I know exactly who the camera belongs to!
He is a Delta Fire Fighter.
I will have him contact you.
Kind Regards,
Hilary."

Thank you to everyone who responded with ideas (some listed below) - proof that the google+ hive-mind can be utilized to complete a simple gesture like returning someones photos :) Did I mention that I love Google+?

three pics were posted in the album from the SD card (photos aren't mine, so the child remained anonymous).
exif data was examined.
Kamloops Fire Rescue and Firefit were contacted.
Canon Canada was contacted re: camera serial number (reply received - no record of the serial number).
photos were dropped into google search and specific websites mentioned in the comments (no luck - nothing matching the exif serial online).
camera serial - canon eos rebel xs: 0520213746
SD card (for those who inquired): Sandisk Extreme III 20mb/s 2GB (it's not uncommon for SD cards to survive underwater - regardless of brand).

an interesting comparison: I posted this on facebook early this morning to try my luck there - it received one 'like' - that's it (there's a reason I left).

Media: please feel free to use the information posted here. I will not be providing interviews or contact information. to those who inquired re: use of my photographs and the story, and provided credit - thank you.

Original Post:

For Sale: Canon EOS 1000D
Description: only used underwater once, in the Pacific Ocean, for approximately one year.

Actual story: found off the end of a wharf in Deep Bay, BC while I was diving on a job for the harbour. I removed the SD card, cleaned it up, stuck it in a card reader and after being underwater in a corroding camera since August 2010 - it works! Approximately 50 pictures on the card from a family vacation. If you know a fire fighter from British Columbia whose team won the Pacific Regional Firefit competition, has a lovely wife and (now) 2 year old daughter - let me know. I would love to get them their vacation photos :)

There are other clues on within the pictures - I think we should be able to track them down (not sure he'll want the camera back tho).

Story
Introduction
I have always loved reptiles, naturally over time it developed into me attempting to get them to breed in captivity.  It is a great hobby that I enjoy.  I work for a local utility company doing a wide variety of jobs but my hobbies keep me stimulated.  I have taken up photography as a hobby also lately, I enjoy learning and attempting to make the image and not just capture a shot.

Probably the most awesome person you will know :p
