CWUAP was originally an abbreviation of Claire's and Walt's Underwater Adventures in Photography because we were doing a lot of underwater photography. We needed a place to put up our photos which we thought were pretty darn good. On a return trip from Indonesia (see the photos here) which was spectacular with Island Dreams Travel out of Houston, TSA broke my regulator, which was so awesome I felt like I was never having to breathe, broke in several places, and Walt and I were having consistent problems with TSA and traveling was becoming a huge hassle. We decided to start doing above-ground photography, and that's how we transitioned into the photography we do today.
But even before Indonesia, we were doing some very fun diving. One year, Claire decided it would be fun to do a shark-feeding dive. Now here was the thinking on this: it was in the Bahamas, and if it was in the least bit dangerous, then it would be all over the newspapers: HEADLINE:
Right? So what could go wrong? Really!
Nothing, except that you felt like you were in the middle of a National-Geographic special on TV on you were right in the middle of it!
It was a fantastic experience. We, of course, had our cameras, but we bought the video of us diving and have never been sorry - along with some priceless photos.
Here's the video:
Proving once again, it's great to take trips and always take photos of your trips so you can enjoy them over and over.
