About 90 miles from NYC is a playground for scuba divers. Dutch Springs, a limestone quarry, attracts northeast scuba divers to train, practice, try new gear and socialize. Many divers thumb their nose up at diving Dutch. Local wreck divers prefer to dive the changing offshore shipwrecks. Warm water divers are not interested in the cold water and some-what low visibility. That being said many dive shops in the Northeast conduct their training at Dutch, and many divers come here to practice their skills.
Even the tiny boat wreck between the platform and bus could make a dramatic image
The weekend is coming, but something may be stopping you from venturing out (like those of you in California currently experiencing Carmageddon). Not to worry; it's not the end of the world, and you can still have fun at home. Plus, you can exercise your creative muscles and try something new to expand your horizons. Here are a couple of cool projects that you can do at home. Try these out this weekend, and post them in the B&H Photo Flickr Group, which we will browse through and round up some of the most interesting selections in a future posting.
Take a look at the major stories in tech new these days and you'll see that Google + is all over it.

I wonder, if one hundred visual artists were questioned why they create, how many different answers I would hear. I also wonder how many similar answers would emerge. Often, there are two somewhat disparate aspects to why we create. One is for self-satisfaction, personal fulfillment, or financial reward. The second is one that we, as photographers, are often reluctant to admit: so that others will see and appreciate what we do.
I took up photography while attending music college for recording engineering, and although I didn’t pursue a career in music, I’ve tried to follow the industry and technology very closely. What I’ve noticed is that there are some very striking parallels with photography.
