As photographers Throwback Thursday can be a powerful tool for marketing. Using your blog, it's a great way to generate a new post each week about photography and the importance of capturing memories, especially of kids as they're growing up. Every day they change a little more, and it's up to you to plant the reminder with "Mom."
But for me, and today's post is a perfect example, I love wandering through files of old photographs. While I think I shared this once before, it was years ago, so sharing it again is in itself a throwback event! I've got this huge smile on my face just thinking about the day above.
I got certified in the early 90's and scuba became an obsession. With a group of great friends we hit trip after trip throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, Cocos Island and even Truk Lagoon off the coast of Guam. I heard a great expression once, diving isn't a hobby it's a sickness.
Sharing this sickness with me are two great friends, Kayce Baker and Bob Rose. The three of us went all over the world together. The shot above was taken at Catalina Island. They've got a wonderful marine park, all roped off and ready to explore. However, true to form and consistent with my perpetual horrible sense of direction, I managed to get lost and lose the two of them on a dive.
Getting lost in a small marine park supported one of the most important rules on every trip we were ever on: "Never follow Skip!"
Happy Throwback Thursday! And to Bob and Kayce - I miss you guys and the adventures!
