An interesting take on a new moral code: http://www.undercurr...bikini-protest/



I buy my own photographic kit. Diving equipment manufacturers and diving services suppliers get even-handed treatment from me whether they choose to advertise in the publications I write for or not. All the equipment I get on loan is returned as soon as it is finished with. Did you know you can now get Diver Mag as an iPad/Android app?

Some people need to get a life.  That's a nice, modest photo.  The girls have radiant smiles, and look happy, as you say.  I don't get why that's a problem.  If some people are unhappy with their own life, why take it out on other people?

:notworthy:  A definite hint of the 60s, John... 


... Jimmy Saville and Stuart Hall have muddied the water on our side of the pond, perhaps.  :nea:


:evilgrin:  In the 21st century you might include a "ripped" young bloke in the middle (for gender balance) next time (although the whole cover image is fattist, ageist and hence objectionable to the average British diver: why do American divers look svelte)?  :evilgrin2:

We are using energy, time and power to speak about this. They don't even deserve it.

They'll grow when they'll be ready for it. We can't blame a baby that can't walk, and for the same reason, just look at this kind of people with a sweet smile and then ignore them : )

You must know a whole bunch of different American divers than I do, although at least locally its hard to tell under the drysyuits.

Quite a nice photo John. I'd have been happy to have taken it myself and the ladies are lovely!
