HOOKAH DIVING – MONTAGUE ISLAND 1968

These long-lost negatives have not been seen before. I found them last night and did these scans. Using b&w 120 size film and PF5 flashbulbs. In this frame there is at least one grey nurse on the weed covered sea floor near the sea lion colony. The grey nurse had moved from the 20-meter deep ‘shallows’ west to about 35 meters. The month was May the year 1968.

Note the spread of light from the old-style flash bulb. The diver on hookah is our mate, **Robert “Bob” Grounds.** – a real professional diver today with a colorful career that makes my humble efforts look lazy.
