I want to be Dr. Alex Mustard when I grow up...

Recommended Posts

:D OK, I admit it may be a bit late since I am already a good 10 years older than the distinguished doctor, but I did grow up watching Jacques Cousteau on television and at times dreamed about being a Marine Biologist. Didn't happen of course, as these things go, I ended up on a different path, but I am quite sure that I am not the only one here, newbie that I am, that sees Alex's job and lifestyle as a bit of a dream!

 

All that to say props to Eric, Matt, James and Alex, in addition to every other contributor here for an addictive and inspiring site. I've been a photography buff and hack for nearly 30 years and I've learned a ton here in just a week or two of reading.

 

A long time Canon user, I just picked up a "new to me" gently used Canon S1-IS and WP-DC20 housing. I've taken the prerequisite pool shots for practice and and heading to the Florida Keys on Saturday to put it to use. I'll just be snokeling the shallow reefs with my wife and two kids this trip, and switching a lot between stills and video, so I don't expect a whole lot from my shooting. I am very excited about it though.

 

So, sorry for the longest newbie introduction ever, but I am appreciative of this site and glad to be here!

There is an assumption in your logic that Dr Mustard is a grown up, which may not be true.

I would guess there are lots more assumptions than that if someone wants to grow up to be Dr Mustard ... I am thinking a candle stick in the library may be another few !

Going to Hens and Chickens reef and Davis reef out of Islamorada, and Looe Key reef out of Big Pine. I may try to hit the Horseshoe too if we have time. We are only going to be down there a couple of days.

There was once a saying that given Warren Beatty's experience with the many women he's been with, men would kill to be his left pinkie finger.

Now for someone to want to be Dr Alex Mustard (even with more hair and less bioprene), that's a real compliment.

Kevin, please remove the shrine in your bedroom closet LOL... oh and welcome to WP.
