Dec Photos, New Camera, College

Christmas 2009So we lost another camera… and decided maybe something a little bigger would be harder to lose. We figured a Canon EOS Rebel T2i should be just about big enough to keep track of. How about a preview of the photos this thing takes:

I start school this week (finally!) First classes are some pre-reqs that I need to take before I dive into the core classes for my “Computer and Information Science / Management Studies” double major. Apparently I can’t take any more elective classes due to all the junk classes I took almost 10 years ago. Oh well, guess the basket weaving class will have to wait :)

Yester I had te chance to dive the USS Emmons, a Gleaves-class destroyer the was sunk in a battle during WWII. It was hit by 5 Japanese Kamikazes, before the crew decided to sink her rather than let it fall into enemy hands. This was by far my deepest dive yet, at 125 ft. Everyone told me that the top edge is right at 130ft, so I was surprised when I was able to enter the boat at 125 and swim around! Here is some history of the boat: USS Emmons. It was only a 22 minute dive because of the depth, so I’m definitely going back some time soon! We took about an hour surface interval then hit a reef on the south side of Kouri Island before calling it a day. Here are the shots:

USS Emmons and Kouri Island Reef

These were taken with my new Point and Shoot Intova IC-10 underwater camera, since I flooded my Olympus C7070. They didn’t come out bad, I’m pleasantly surprised considering it cost less than half what the C7070 cost. A strobe would give me good setup!
