Behind the Scenes


Behind the Scenes


That blinding white blob-like object in the top right corner is Your Humble Narrator. Fairly easy to tell from that, despite living in (actually, because of) in North Central Baja Jorja I don't usually expose large areas of skin surface to direct sunlight. As is, despite application of some sun screen I still pinked up my backside shoulders a bit. The more graceful shape in the lower left corner is Our Muse and Model, performing gyrations as directed before submerging.

Film delivered to lab yesterday, and will be available processed and digitised on Friday.

IN other news, two new tyres on Sydney SubaruOutback and confirmation that other parts indeed need replacing, though the parts were not ordered. This work is done at our local tyre place, and we do like the work they do on our tyres. Last time I needed tyres replaced I'd had the Subaru in to the mechanic we usually have do such work, and the owner of our tyre place sort of wondered why as they do such work there also.

So we asked them to do the work as well as tyres this time; we got the car back with confirmation as stated, but no other work. 'OK I'll call for the prices on the parts and leave a message' response.

Hmm.

Yes, please do, and meanwhile tomorrow I'll also call Our Usual Mechanic and get the prelim (parts) estimate from them plus a heads up that we'll be bringing him in when they get the parts. Needs new CV joints for the front and a new bearing on the right front wheel. Not too extreme for 157,000 miles / 251200 kilometres.

What underwater camera do you use, out of curiousity?

I burn too. Still, I'll take the Sunbelt over snow and cold weather any day.

Hmm, yah, can't see it in this photo... it's under water! *G*

As mentioned in fourth paragraph of previous post, these particular ones are marketed by Fuji Film. They are 'disposables', use once, get processed. The first experiment mentioned in previous post elsewhere, the camera is marketed by Kodak. I've seen both the Kodak and Fuji ones available at Walgreens and CVS pharmacy/general stores. I expect they will also be found at places like K-Mart, Wal-Mart, and Target. They're priced right around $20 US.

Don't have the links available (didn't bookmark them I think) to other options I've found which are fairly reasonably priced and allow for using either a DSLR or Point&Shoot digital, costing between $20 - $45 US.

And, what a lot of people don't realise is one can sun-burn even in cold; snow makes an excellent reflector and even though cold, one can get a sunburn.

i have used both the kodak and fuji underwater disposables and am pretty umimpressed with them in general.i think it is lack of light control, focus, or distance. I have yet to get a great picture out of them, althought sometimes a good or a couple of ok picts
