I would like to say, first and foremost, that I cannot take credit for a single one of these photos.
In fact, I wasn't even in the same state as the photo - taker when they were taken.
Also, in fact, I find the underwater camera equipment is a bit too much for me. I mean, you have to remember to breathe, keep your buoyancy, watch out for scary stuff, pay attention to your air supply and the direction of your travel, AND operate a camera?!?
I am obviously too simple-minded.
However, my talented boyfriend is not. In fact, I think he lives to add complication to things. Thus producing amazing results.
See below for a very limited variety of the photographs he recently took on his trip to Florida. 
Come over to my house to see them displayed all over the walls. :)

Turtles are AWESOME.
(and all I can think of when I see this picture is "Duuuuude", you either get it. or you dont.)

Mark tagged this little guy "Nemo", just for me. 

Safety Stop

A land photo!!!

This is why I scuba dive.
(even though I have never dove in water that wasn't a quarry or spring, haha)

I have so much inspiration all around me.
and in spite of some not so awesome circumstances occurring in my life right now, I need to remember to take advantage. 
Here's to remembering.
Here's to Mark. :)

Scuba diving scares me too! In a quarry, I would think about possible dead bodies lying on the bottom or something creepy like that. I will just enjoy your pictures :)
