So I am in Bonaire for a week of diving. We do our check out dive and and couple of other dives the first day. That evening I get my camera gear set up. I am going to get my UK Germany LX5 housing wet for the first time since Uwe sent me a wet lens for it. We do the first dive and I take a few photos. As I enter the water for the second dive I wake the camera up and I see a water line in housing!!!! Ahhhh!! I swim like hell back to shore all the while watching the water line and waiting for the camera to die. Just as I reach shore I notice that the camera has not died. What the hell?? I look at the front and see water in the lens. Then it becomes clear - literally and figuratively. The wet lens was filling with water :-)))). I laugh at myself and then explain to my dive partners my irrational behavior as I swim back out.
I will up load a few photos for folks to critique here soon. In the mean time please laugh at my anticts :-).

I am an university researcher doing scientific visualization and analysis. My avatar is a reaction-diffusion pattern that I created as part of some research in mathematical biology. The pattern is found around the eye of Papua Toby Puffer Fish (Canthigaster papua) found in the Western Pacific region.

I spend most of my time alpine climbing, hiking, mtn. biking, or skiing. When I can get away it is to travel for climbing or diving. Been doing this nonsense for way too long to do anything different.
