Raised in Florida-Stuck in the Desert
Posted 11 May 2008 - 09:59 AM
I join from the far off reaches of Tucson Arizona.
A few days ago, I purchased my first digital camera and housing. A G9 and Canon Housing.
Man am I stoked. In less than a month I will try all this out in Roatan.
My father used to take underwater photos in Florida, back in the 70s. I still have some of his equipment as ancient as it may be. He worked for an underwater salvage company named Real Eight. He was a machinist-not a diver for the company. Oddly, there are few photos from this era. The State of Florida was greedy and wanted the lion's share of the booty, so photography was considered evidence.
Anyhow, I look forward to surfing the site. It looks well managed and well populated with good folks.

Don't forget to tell us all about Roatan when you come back. I am going there at the end of July, so I want to know all the gossip!
