underwater

Last month the Internet, and we’re sure all your newsfeeds, were flooded with Seth Casteel’s photos of dogs underwater. We won’t dwell on them too much because we know you’ve seen them a dozen times, but here are a few pictures for anyone who missed them.

These photos got us exploring the Interwebs for other underwater photography.

James Morgan photographed the Bajau Laut, an Indonesian fishing community, where destructive fishing (where fishermen use homemade explosives to decimate coral and kill all the fish in the radius of the blast) is having a serious impact on human life. But one of the huge advantages of living on the Coral Triangle is that little Enal gets to have a pet shark. Wow.
