Story
Introduction
Edmonds, Washington to Key Largo, Florida now in Gulfport (Florida)...Scuba Instructor, Dive Boat Captain, Flower Guy, Liquor Store Clerk, Unrepentant Appreciator of All Things/People Beautiful...nature, history, synchronicity, serendipity, fate, chance. Bad haiku a compulsive hobby. I cannot be trusted if I have a water hose in my hand no matter what I promise, so don't whine when your turn rolls around.

I love to take pictures...photography is sometimes technical, snapshots are random hail-mary's...I shoot what I see, and for some reason the natural world sometimes cooperates. I use an Olympus 5050, a 15 year old 5 megapixel 3/4 second shutter lag, 15 second load picture delay dinosaur (but I love her!) in an original Olympus housing. No external strobes are used in any of these photographs; Internal strobe only.

And I write. Someday, I will write and you will pay me to do it. Yes, you will.

Sweet dive boat, great crew and rental gear at the boat. I brought my own equipment and was asked to put my system together on the dock. It was only then that I realized a tank I brought was empty. They were able to rent me another tank onsite before we left the dock. TOTALLY SAVED MY DIVE!!!
