It seems that my dive buddies always end up being female... hmm what's up with that?
Not that I'm complaining, .
Next step is to convince them to be underwater models for me.. B)

this past summer at my internship at a fish hatchery in miami...
this past summer at Cocos Island shooting a bait ball... we came up from a dive and saw all these birds, I still had somewhere over 1500 psi but they wouldnt let me get in.. go figure. i ended up taking the dome port off and shooting with my housing and strobes off the back of the boat. fun stuff
still at Cocos...

I have rejoined the discussion here. Part of what prompted me to do so was Drew Wong's posting about our friend Larry Smith. I dived with Larry Smith several times, first at KBR in 1997. What a guy! I had never met anyone as excited about the next dive as he was and (so far) never have. He was truly one of a kind.
I would like to correct something that Drew Wong posted. Larry's Crack, or Retak Larry was not named after Larry Smith. Larry Smith has a large legacy, while I have very little except that Larry's Crack was named for me. I hope that nothing in this comment/correction takes away from our mutual mourning the passing of Larry Smith.
I have attempted to add a couple of photos. If I wasn't successful please let me know.

In April 2006 I went on a night dive in Kona, Hawaii. We were hoping to spot some manta rays but the dive master said that the past couple of nights they hadn't been showing up. We were just about to give up when seven absolutely beautiful mantas showed up to munch on the plankton that were attracted to the boat's lights. We grabbed our gear and hopped in as the mantas swam all around and between us. The videographer, Martina from Dolphin Dreams Images, went around filming everyone. As soon as her two spotlights hit her target, the mantas would immediately surround the person. When she got to me, one came in right between us. As it glided past, the tip of its wing popped my mask up to my forehead and as Martina put it later, "...and all of a sudden I see face."
She was kind enough to send me some screen captures and Michaela asked me to post them. Sorry about the grainy quality.
