Hello....

I have been taking pictures a while... (Bastet photos) and I just built my own strobe cords. I’m curious if anyone else has. I have a couple of design problems I’m trying to overcome. I got really tired of those silly thin things that break on sight and cost $100 a piece.

LOVE the crab shot, very very intense shot. I like the cockscombs too. They are very shy. I usually just wait and while and see if they will come out to get a shot. Very nice job! hey, that MY lumpsucker!!!!! :)

Re: Redondo - Feb 09

This was a really magical dive for me and thanks Bob for putting up with my fumbling as I am learning how to take better shots with my camera (fins up and belly down!)... My 201st dive and I see 7 lumpies in beautiful colors and teeny octos and a marbled snailfish and I actually got some good shots....

Re: E-PL1 Users Group

I have a sola 500 as a focus light and I love it. And that sucker is BRIGHT. It can annoy the critters as Lynne says. So be aware of that. If you get the 800 it has a red light that you can use, and fish do not see red so that may help with shy fish. These lights run at $300. I got a small deal on m...

Yay Greg you just solved my ID puzzle too. I was looking at my key and it spoke to looking at lines under the chin for identifying between slender and high. I don't know about you guys, but I don't get many opportunities to chuck these guys under the chin and look at the lines...!!!!

Re: NWDC tshirts - what size do you want?

I am late and I apologize for that. I would LOVE a women's cut t shirt size L. I hate unisex, I am not unisex or a guy. Ok enough said. If you get one, I'll pay extra. If not, oh well.

Thank you!

I've been thinking about this for a number of reasons, but primarily because the jacket BCD is really starting to hurt my back. I also get frustrated with the way the D rings...

Hey thanks for posting the new requirement for scallop harvest as I DO make the rules (used to work on the ODFW regulations anyway- do not currently)and leaving the shells is a great idea!

Ok, well it was only three of us... however... If you work for the State in Oregon you have 14 delightful interludes over 2 years called "furloughs"- usually on Friday, and it's a day where the State can't afford to pay you- so it's a mandatory day off. So why not dive on Furlough Friday? ...
