This is a fun VIMEO clip. Showing some similarity between domesticated tiny creatures like gold fish and apex predators in the Ocean.The behavior of gold fish, hand fed in the small pool on our balcony, reminded me of the baiting of Oceanic sharks from Cat Island Bahamas. Although they do not have that big dorsal fin cutting the surface. The biggest orange gold fish, showing up in the right corner must be around 20 years old. The whitish one,should be 15 years old.

I am from Holland and started making UW pictures in the early 70ties, using a self-built perspex housing with a Pentax camera inside, and a perspex housed flash. And...it worked! Then I bought the fabulous Rolleimarin with the Rolleiflex 3.5. f, which became my good companion for many years. This camera was ideal for close-up shots, in particular fish portraits. Later I switched to a Hugy systeem (Hugymarin) with a Mamya 645 that allowed me to use wide-angle Secor lenses. Finally I ended up with the digital stuff: NikonD80/D90/D7000/D7100/D7200 in Ikelite housings, using mostly the Tokina fish eye10-17 fish eye. Recently, I bought the Olympus EPL5 with a Panasonic 8 mm fish eye in an Olympus housing as a back up for my Nikon/Ikelite system.
Favourite diving spots: the 'Isles d'Or' in the French Mediterranean, the Red Sea, Borneo, and the Bahama's.
