Today I scanned in a few photos from scuba diving in Mexico last May. This was our first diving trip and first attempt at underwater photography. I bought an inexpensive film camera in an underwater housing just to be able to get some photo experience. Most of the photos aren't great but the learning experience was worthwhile. Mostly I learned that I wanted better digital photo equipment, but also that underwater photography is significantly more complex than land photography because remembering to breathe and remaining really still are difficult when you're concentrating on your subject. The full album is online now. The cavern pics are from the Chac-Mool cenote near Playa del Carmen. Most of the others are from Tortugas (turtle) reef. Kevin Sorensen also has some nice photos from Tortugas.
