Palau BFF

Back from Germany, and back at my laptop. I traveled to Germany with just an iPad (and iPhone for camera – data roaming is stupid expensive, so I kept it in airplane mode for the duration). The iPhone camera pretty … Continue reading

Pic of the Day – Confession of Obsession

Okay, I’ll confess – I think I have a (slightly) obsessive personality. Fortunately, the stuff I tend to obsess over is generally pretty positive. I don’t obsess about my weight, our kids, money, cleanliness, nor, the biggie these days – … Continue reading

Pic of the Day – Ribbon Eel

Here’s Friday’s funny fish face – a ribbon eel. The above image was captured in Ambon Harbour, Indonesia. These little eels are a tropical Pacific photographer’s favourite – but, unlike most eels, they are not so easy to photograph. Although … Continue reading

Friday’s funny fish face is the Pajama Cardinalfish (Sphaeramia nematoptera). I photographed this little cutie on a shore dive in Fiji earlier this year. It is kind of an amusing tale – the visibility was pretty poor (downright spunky in … Continue reading

Pic of the Day – Topside Tuesday: Blue Whale
