Photo of the Week 32
This week was all about the water. I spent three days filming underwater movies, one day fun diving with an internet-to-real-life friend, and the rest of the time working furiously on my computer to catch up with all my freelancing work. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that today I had to call in sick to my underwater video job because I’m so ill!
I did a bad job narrowing things down this week, meaning you all have even more material than usual to choose from when voting for Photo of the Week.
Why do dive boats leave so early? The sun rising in the morning while we gather our gear.
I love that moment when you first jump off the boat and into the water.
This grouper sat so still while I snapped photo after photo. I think he kind of liked me.
Mark is actually the photographer behind this amazing Crown of Thorns shot. I’m so proud of him! I guess he is listening when I’m droning on about underwater photography.
Another one of Mark’s shots. I love it.
You know what to do… leave your vote in the comments below!
C and D are my favorites…if I have to choose I’m going with C. SUCH a fun dive!
I’m surprised you didn’t pick B… after all, you were the model! 🙂
Haha, I DO love it, but if I’m being honest to my photographic opinion I have to go with a different favorite :).
Photo A hands down…although B is a contender…and C, what a sweet little grouper! Yeah, I think he liked you and recognized you as a friend to water-breathers everywhere.
The shell in A and the Impressionist background is stunning and also interesting: the shell looks like a fish head from one direction and an entire fish from the opposite direction.
Hey Mark, you’ve got a great eye, too!
I didn’t see that illusion in Photo A… funny what different eyes can see! And yes, I’m so proud of the photos Mark takes now!
I’m gonna go with B.
No doubt in my mind. Picture C.
Love ’em all! But Photo B gets my vote!
This is hard–I have changed my mind many times. . .I like what Mom said so will go with A. You’re very brave (no duh) jumping into blackness! And D looks like a painting! Good work. Bravo to you both.
Thanks Karen! Well, in person the water doesn’t look so black so I don’t mind jumping into it 🙂
These photos are fantastic – they always are! I love following your blog, as a fellow recent college grad looking for ways to make traveling the world a lifestyle.
I think photo B is a winner this week, it perfectly captures that moment of excitement and anticipation before a dive, although the rest are really beautiful too!
Thanks Heather, you’re comment made my day! I checked out your blog, India seems amazing! Keep living the dream…
This is a hard week! They’re all so good. A was my first instinct but I really like the underwater ones too. I’m glad your “photo” of the week is actually a “photos” of the week voting game.
I’m glad that you guys like voting… and don’t just think I’m lazy! 🙂
I am going with D. The subject matter is so foreign to most of us landlubbers, I mean the fish and the shell we know about, but a crown of thorns can only be seen underwater apparently. The scale is unknown which adds a touch of mystery.
Very good point! I’ll have to tell Mark that he won your vote this week 🙂 Actually, I think D might be my favorite as well.
D and E are my favorites!
They’re all great, but I love B- The one of the divers. Great angle, love the silhouette against the morning sun!
Oooo, I love that last one with the sunlight shining through and the fish swimming away! Great photo!
Alex they are all awesome (as usual) but I have to go with D. Also, A for me is a close second. I know it’s not one of your “underwater specials” … But I love That pic.
Well, Mark is the one who took Photo D so he I’ll tell him he got your vote! Photo A makes me think of you guys… beach lovers!
My vote is for E! The angle is capturing the sunlight just right!
E by a fuckin’ mile. WOW.
Wow so many comments I love it! I think A. 🙂
Ha yes this must be a very divisive issue! I think this is the most overnight comments I’ve ever had 🙂
I’m kinda partial to B… it’s so appropriate for your blog!
You’re right! That moment of anticipation really is a metaphor for diving into not just the water but also… life!
