Simply put,

I love carrying around a camera, and trying to get people to look into the lens.

Coron, Philippines – Scuba Diving

Diving in Coron mainly focuses on about 30 WWII Japanese wrecks, and salt water/fresh water lakes.(below right) A caterpillar tractor inside one of the boats.   (below) Nudibranch – soft-bodied, marine gastropod mollusk which sheds its shell after its larval stage. They are noted for their often extraordinary colors and striking forms. WikipediaGoing into the wrecks could be a bit unnerving.  This trip marked the first time we dove below 100ft.  To add to that, it was inside of a boat, and we had about 7 minutes before we had to begin to ascend.  We trusted our dive master, who had been through the wrecks thousands of times.  I couldn’t help but think that if he had a sudden heart attack or something, we would have to find our own way back to the surface.  That would have been very difficult, and even more scary.  below – Mandarinfish, one of the most beautiful fish in the world.    below – Kayangan Lake
