well before work brings me down too much i'll write up about the weekend on the boat. we had a photography competition. usually this is film only, and there's a separate digital competition later in the year. but this year the big event was a combined film and digital.

saturday was the usual hectic start. all the photographers spending as much time in the water as possible, cameras in housings with strobe lights and cables and connectors being ferried from one side of the boat to the other, lowered to divers in the water, collected from the divers, dumped in fresh water tubs and then the divers opening them up, downloading the pics or changing the films, then doing it all over again. the conference room was full of laptops and camera bits.

unfortunately due to the popularity of digital cameras, the film guys had real problems with the processing. just getting the chemicals to the local processor was a bit of a problem. gonna be interesting to see how many film guys we get next year, only 4 his year, maybe only 1 next year.

at least the visibility wasn't too bad, and the conditions were ok, warm water and not too much swell. the cook celebrated her 1000th dive by going for a naked dive with 1000 written on her bum. we told her we didn't think she'd done 10000 dives hehehe

some boring pictures:
a little red rock cod", a seedy wee dragon, perch, sunset, pineapple fish, octopus, part of a big school of old wives, mado, blackfish, bullseyes, same again, and what usually happens when i try and take a photo of a fish, it swims away.
