This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Yellow’
We all live in a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine.
If only, that’d be very cool (as long as it had big viewing windows).
This weeks theme is yellow, and my photo above is an old one but one I still like regardless of the mixed reactions of my peers at the time. I love wall to wall fish pictures, even closeups like this where you can’t really tell straight away whats going on. This is two butterfly fish, one behind the other, not a mutant one with the face in the middle ;) Below are some more yellow things from under the sea… sadly no submarines though:

I’ve got 4 photos in the Q4 edition of Undersea Journal (a business to business publication for the PADI Diving Society). If any of my friends have a copy and can snapshot me the layout I’d be really interested to see it. Thanks.
This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Skyline’
This weeks theme is skyline. Its interesting, when you think of a place you usually picture some famous scene, some skylines are so famous that if you blacked out the picture apart from the sky you’d still know where it was. I picked out a few of my pictures which I think illustrates this. Above, Ankor Wat (Cambodia) at sunrise. Below, Singapore Marina Bay skyline.

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Detail’
Being too fat to function is pretty much dominating my thoughts at the moment as I’m now 3 days overdue with my little one and getting bigger by the second. On the upside I’m still able to eat and I spare a thought for these poor little mouth-brooding cardinal fish from the Red Sea….
Once the eggs are released and fertilized the male will take the eggs into his mouth to protect them while they incubate. The eggs remain in his mouth for 10 days or more and every minute or so he will open his mouth to allow fresh water to oxygenate the eggs. Even after hatching the fry remain in mouth of the male for a few days. He allows them to swim in and out of his mouth until they are mature enough to face life in the ocean. At this time, he spits them out in groups to search for food. So long as the male holds the eggs, and subsequently the fry, in his mouth the male does not eat. During this time the female will aggressively chase away any other fish that encroach on the male’s location. So much less fun than lying on the sofa watching star wars films with Mike lol.
Since this weeks theme is detail, I’ve made a 100% crop in on those tiny little eggs, as you can see they are mostly little balls with eyes at this stage so I’d say this little fishy wasn’t going to be eating for quite a few more days.

Also, I made it into this weeks noteworthy with my PhotoFriday – Orange post from two weeks ago. Thanks to all who voted for me :) This week we’re voting for last weeks theme of moving – I’m no #51 ;).
This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Orange’
Annoyingly I spaced last week and missed the theme of wet. Doh! This week’s theme is Orange, not a lot more orange in the sea than anthias and the reefs in the Red sea in the summer are thick with them. Although common, I think they are lovely little fish. I could watch them for hours if I had the air time.
Tell me in the comments, what common critter just has you coming back for more?

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Buildings’
This weeks theme is buildings. There aren’t too many places in the world you can see buildings underwater (and none that I’ve seen in person yet) but living in London there is no scarcity of great buildings to look at and photograph. Like a tourist, I love to look up. Here are some building abstracts from central London that I took whilst doing some of my degree exercises.
Tell me in the comments what is your favourite local building (and which city is it based)?
