From the beginning of time the human race has used the world’s lakes, rivers, and oceans for gathering food, transporting goods, for sports and recreation. Modern human beings have a need to document activities, usually by taking photographs. We want photos for record keeping, showing people where we have been, what we explored, and who we, our family, and friends are. And for creative art and fun.
When divers think about underwater photography gear they immediately think of Ikelite. Here’s how it came about. While he was wreck diving in 1962 all of Ike Brigham’s lights kept flooding or imploding. With necessity being the mother of invention, Ike invented the first o-ring sealed underwater light to incorporate a sealed beam bulb. Word throughout the diving community spread like spawning coral and everyone wanted one of Ike’s lights. That is how Ikelite was born. From that time forward Ikelite has remained an inventive company producing camera housings, video housings, underwater strobes, video lights and of course dive lights.
Most of my photographic interest involves working underwater. However, some places in the world are as interesting above water as below. A trip to Egypt would not be complete without visiting the Pyramids and other sites of the ancient world. Planning such a trip is a logistical nightmare, though, involving domestic flights and ground transportation. It is best to use a travel agent who specializes in your destination.
As I prepare for another dive off the Island of Roca Partida, everything is perfect, as it has been the past five days. It is a beautiful day, sea conditions are ideal, and I am thinking about the wonders I will photograph as this amazing trip is coming to an end. I check all my life support equipment and camera gear before boarding the Zodiac (rubber raft type boat).
