Scuba Diving Events Weekend

It's been a busy couple of days.

DAY 1
Starting Friday night we attended the Underwater Film Festival of the Cayman Islands, this was a great event, showing 4 films and all very different, but all related to underwater stuff.

The first film was a little biography of Ron & Valerie Taylor, a very famous Australian couple that have dedicated their life to the ocean, taking pictures, filming it and doing research on different species and specially on Great White Sharks. (Click here to see their wiki page).


There was also a film from another marine biologist/explorer Hans Hass filmed back in the 1930 - 40's, pretty amazing stuff from back in the day.

Another feature film was from the American Marine Artist Wyland and when he painted a huge mural in Long Beach, CA to commemorate earth day 2009.


And the last film of the night feature a few videos of free diving skills, competitions as well as some very extreme deep diving. Check out one of their videos, it's pretty amazing...



DAY 2

During the day we had an event call Art @ Governors... will post about it later with some very cool pictures!

At night we attended the 10th Annual International Scuba Diving Hall of Fame.


There were 4 people inducted and two local honorees. It was a wonderful evening with friends, food, drinks and all about diving.

Now it's Sunday and I don't think I will have much time to post (at least Monday & Tuesday) because we are having a 2 day event at the gallery with artist/my boss Guy Harvey as well as marine artist Wyland. I will try to take lots of pictures and then share them.

Have a wonderful week and happy February!
