I didn't have much additional success in my underwater photography
attempts in 2002 versus the previous year. I was still bad, and
I still had bad equipment. Never the less I made the best of a bad
situation. When I consider the equipment i was using, I'm somewhat
impressed with what I achieved. Part of me would like to visit Jamaica
again with my current camera equipment, but I quickly remind myself
how much better diving elsewhere is.
As I noted in the 2001 edition my usable photos doubled despite
the same number of exposures. However, after looking at photos like
the one above, this photo wouldn't even make the cut nowadays. How
far I've come...
That is the one and only basket starfish I have ever run across.
Strange that it was in Jamaica of all places.
And my first free-swimming eel caught on film.
And my first Stingray. As bad as the diving is in Jamaica, it was
still enjoyable. It introduced me to the sport/hobby/addiction,
and many of my first encounters are from my days spent underwater
off the Negril coast.
