These pictures were all taken with an inexpensive Ikelite underwater camera housing containing a little Fuji APS camera. They're the first shots I ever took with it, and I basically was clueless how to use the thing properly. Next time I hope to do better. Still, a few underwater pix are better than none!
I learned a lot doing this. The better photos were made when I attached a lens that is optimal for photos in the 2-6' range. I also was using the flash more properly with those photos. All of these shots were taken while snorkeling. I can tell you its very hard to get framed properly, hold it steady, and take a good shot on one breath of air!
Unfortunately, the third time I took the camera down, which was the first time on scuba, the camera flooded. Bummer! I hadn't checked the o-ring carefully enough because it had been so trouble free. That was the end of my picture taking for that trip, but I really enjoyed it and these results are good enough that I'll keep after it.
My friend Steve Sorensen looks like a pro model doesn't he?
Bob is not nearly so graceful underwater...
Here's the little barge its fun to dive on.
Bobby came out and snorkelled with us too!
I couldn't get both ends of Bobby into one photo so I took two!
Our brave diver creates a feeding frenzy with some toast!
Parotfish make those pretty white sand beaches--you don't want to know how!
Sgt Majors and Grunts abound in this undersea army...
It's the Tres Amigos...
Fish living inside the barge in the dark.

My daughter would say this is a "ne-mo-nee". Some got as much as a yard across! The tentacle tips came in many different colors--pink, red, blue, and green.
A trumpetfish tries to duck my camera...
What is this fish? They were aggressive eaters of bread...
This is what's under your feet when you snorkel...
Pretty juvenile angelfish...
