We’ve come a Long Way Baby

underwater photography2

Today you can pick up a Nikon Coolpix underwater camera for a few hundred bucks and grab yourself some underwater shots pretty easily.  Not so in the old days.  These photos go back to the early 50′s when my dad became fascinated with scuba diving (after seeing the film “The Frogmen, “1951) and underwater photography.  He developed one of the first underwater camera cases, which resulted in his being invited by Jacques Cousteau aboard the Calypso so that Mr. Cousteau could see it.  The model is my mom, Jean Lefavour.
