Hey, you say that like "warped" is a bad thing! :) :( Makes me wonder what Monty Python would have done with the "men shopping for nylons" concept... Perhaps integrated it to create a "Minister of Silly Walks in Nylons" skit?! :( :lol:

I wore official title of "Live Bait". This was my first time being in the open ocean with these
huge things. I'm going back next year so I can get some real decent pix. I think I have a few
decent ones this time around but got stuck on some other foto projects back in NY. Will post
a few in a few weeks. It was an absolutely fantastic trip!! JASA is DA BOMB!

Hi Al,

Good to see you buddy! I have a good photo of you posted in my gallery at www.reefpix.org

I'd be interested in seeing some photos from your "other projects" if you feel like sharing. Click on the button at lower left to email me.

Was great diving w/ you all. I just got back from the HUPS meeting and was excited to tell them about the trip.

I swear that I just came across this related news item...

Bahamas bans 'Brokeback'
30/03/2006 5:58:58 PM

Gay rights groups and others are decrying a decision by the Bahamas film control board to ban the gay cowboy romance Brokeback Mountain.

Here's the link: http://entertainment...ne=True&abc=abc

I smell a conspiracy. What next? The Bahamas film control board bans the gay shark diver romance Brokeback Reef? :)

Seriously... nice that a few of you had a chuckle over of last nights post which is all that was intended. What can I say...DeanB's girlfriend started it hahaha Now... everyone into the pool!

I can say that the mkII's AF in AI-Servo is better than the 5D's (Duh!) lol.


Thanks James, that is exactly what I wanted to worm out of you! hehe
