I just got a little surprise on the Inon site. I didn't realize I was the artist for THIS month :lol: I went over to the site and saw my picture on it. I was rather surprised and happy :) Time to send an email to my parents and let em know :) Anyway, I was really happy about this because I really love Inon's lenses and strobes and can't say enough about them and how great they are for freedive photography.

This follows on the heels of the artist of the week over at
Scuba Diver Magazine.

Anyway, it was a nice month or two.

Aloha,
John

Thanks for the kind words. They are very much appreciated :lol: It's really been a nice couple of months. Now, to get back to the ocean...
Luiz, I'd like to get in the water, too. Maybe waiting for the poop to clear would be a good idea though. I'm allergic to flesh-eating viruses.
