Reflections, light and distortions from the ripples of the water are some of my favorite things when I dream of underwater photography. I've contemplated for awhile on which underwater housing I wanted. Being on a budget I knew spending around two thousand would be impossible, but I also didn't want to spend less than one hundred. I wanted my price to be in the middle with my choices I've picked. With all the research I did, my search ended with an Outex casing. As scary as it was to submerge my camera underwater, I wanted to have it in time for our summer vacation in Alabama. At first I really wanted to test this baby out at the beach, but for a first timer the pool seemed more relaxed and less stressful.

The ladies in our personal photojournalism group wanted to pick a theme that reflected with the end of summer. We all have that special bond of memories about Summer. Sometimes it can get a little sad because summer is over. Even though my favorite season is Fall, these water images leave me with some of my best impressions of Summer. This month was my turn to pick the quote for our theme. I picked a quote from a Bob Marley song because who doesn't love listening to this legend during the summer days. 

Sun is shining. Weather is sweet. Make you wanna move your dancing feet.
— Bob Marley
