Hi! Welcome to my divelog! I presume you’ve come here because you would like to know what this project is about, so let me give you a brief explanation.
Keeping a dive log is something that many divers do. First of all, it serves a very useful purpose, such as keeping a record of the amount of weight used with a given exposure suit & equipment setup, and keeping track of the surface air consumption. It also provides a dossier of one’s experience level. That’s particularly useful when you are on a diving holiday, say, and you need to provide some “evidence” to the local dive shop that you are sufficiently experienced to join for a certain dive.
For many, however, keeping a dive log is just a nice way of keeping a memory of their diving adventures, long after the cylinder valve has been closed and the post-dive chat with buddies is over.
Nowadays, some people have moved towards logging their dives via software installed on their laptop, or even an app on their phone. Others – and I count myself amongst this category – still like keeping a traditional logbook of the paper & ink variety.
Right, so that’s enough about logbooks. How did this specific project come to mind?
Very often I carry a camera with me on my dives. For this reason, I had long thought of starting a webpage dedicated to the sharing of my images. But then, once upon an afternoon, it struck me. Why not post the pictures from my dives in a dive log fashion? Not that I would ever want to replace my trusty paper logbook, but surely it would be nice to compliment it with an online log which would also enable others to share a little bit in the excitement of exploring the underwater world.
And that’s the spirit in which this site was created. It won’t necessarily log each and every dive I make (I have my paper logbook for that!), but dives on which I carry my camera and happen to encounter something which I deem to be worth sharing will find their place here. Also, I don’t intend to restrict this webpage strictly to my dives. If there’s a diving topic which I feel like writing about, it will crop up on this space. Indeed you can finding a listing of such articles here.
Whatever brings you here, I hope you enjoy your stay on these pages!
Happy & safe diving,
