Wherever You Go, You Take Yourself With You Why Do I Post Photos of Myself? Why? Because it is a moment. It is a fleeting moment…. truly fleeting moments.

Eagerly, I turn on the camera and dive under. BLUR – uh. No mask. Too salty. I get a mask and snorkel. Ok! Fully prepared, I dive in. Start taking photos. Dang. Too dark. Not light enough under water to…
