Picsplosion! Updates!

It took a bit longer than anticipated, but now it’s up! The Wallpaper page is now up and functional, with 20 pictures and a plan for biweekly additions. All the pictures are my own, taken during dives in British Columbia, Bali, Cyprus and Oahu. Each has been corrected as required for clarity and/or colour and cropped to 1280×800 for best fit. The names are descriptors, not the scientific names, which are available in the original article the pic was featured in or on the Tropical or Cold Water photo gallery pages.

Speaking of the photo galleries, they’re getting a boost this weekend as well, with 16 new photos to be posted by the end of the day today! Each of these galleries is expanding nicely and I’m doing my best to make sure each picture is correctly identified by its scientific name in addition to its common name. If I’ve misidentified something, let me know so I can check it again and get it right! And as per, you can support the cause by checking out Ocean Tides, where many of the pictures seen on posts and in the galleries here are available on everything from mugs to tshirts, mousepads and more. There’s also a selection of diver themed clothes, Deep Diver and Diver Girl. Enough of this shameless self promotion though!

Coming into April, my training is almost complete at DiveSafe International, where I’ve already finished the 40m Unrestricted Occupational Scuba Diver and Occupational NitrOx Diver/Gas Blender 22-40% and currently working on the 30m Restricted Inshore Surface Supply diver course. My plans for articles in the coming month are in their formative stages, with one on scientific diving techniques and ideas I’ve had on the subject, something about dive planning and maybe something on dive buddies and etiquette/behaviour while underwater. Of course, I’ll be adding to the two gallery pages and the wallpaper page as well, and hopefully I’ll have a chance to get some good pictures on this last part of my course! About Me has been updated to reflect my new certifications and situation to!

Well, that’s the plan, and that’s it for this week’s posting! Thanks for your continued support!
