Thinking about the Sea

I never thought she would think about this…


Walk on Water

Who has never dreamt of walking on water? Leaving worries behind and just walk into sunset.

Fisheye Submarine

My best friends gave me a Lomography Fisheye Submarine camera as a birthday present!

The Fisheye Submarine is the big dipper of all lomography underwater camera cases. It takes the Fisheye experience to a whole new level! So from now on I can explore new places and clear waters, even as deep as 20m below the surface. …Somebody has an extra ticket  to a sunny, warm and beachy destination?

Front Crawl

Off course I can swim, I do the breaststroke already for as long as I remember! I love it and I can say I am pretty good at it, but as soon as I start the front crawl I look like a drowning dog. I never learned the technique so I thought it was about time to take some private lessons. Today you could find me in the children’s area of the Olympic swimming pool, exercising to learn the perfect style.

The front crawl of forwarded crawl is a swimming style usually regarded as the fastest of all styles developed. Unlike the backstroke, the butterfly stroke and the breaststroke, the front crawl is not regulated by the FINA, but it is nearly universally swum in freestyle competitions.

Oil Disaster: sad water news

It’s terrible. 70 days have passed since the first explosion of BP’s Deepwater Horizon drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico, and the crude oil and natural gas continue to gush from the seafloor. Collected here are recent photographs from the Gulf of Mexico, and of those affected by the continued flow of oil and gas into the ocean. For more pictures check:
