Last weekend we`ve been diving in Germany, an indoor divesite called Monte Mare (with fantastic imitation of an underwater sea landscape – more about it later).
Our son knows already a lot about diving... he understands it takes an important part in our lives, saw us while diving on photos and videos, but never live, in reality. This was a great opportunity letting him see mom and dad diving. He can hardly wait to join us, he is practicing diligently in the bath tub and in swimming pools, but he must be patient and wait another 4.5 years until his physique is developed well enough to deal with being exposed to water pressure. It will be one of the best day of my life when I can the first time introduce him to the underwater world :-)
I'm having a little difficulty understanding, I don't know the term indoor divesite... is this like an aquarium??? How cool that Jamie got to watch and that you got to photograph him!
aside of the fact that i envy little jamie for having parents that introduce him to the best thing to do in live from his earliest years (and wishing you, your husband and of course him all the happiness that diving together will bring to xour future years), what i absolutely adore most on these pictures is the mixture of layers, intertwining realities, inside-out views, the looking, the photgraphing on bith sides, the watching and being watched, the connectedness of all the elements involved, air, water, stone (i even see fire), even though there is thick walls and glass windows in between... and all of this, somehow, seems to me being a mirror, a frame, a puzzle that contains everything important and worth to live for.
thanks for sharing these nonchalantely unpretentious, yet deeply touching pics. :-)
