FotoFriday: Surfin’ Snappin’ Learnin’ by Peter A. Mello

Alright, it’s mid February and the winter doldrums probably have you down a bit. Here’s a perfect educational boondoggle if there ever was one. The School of Visual Arts has a study aboard program which offers Action Surf Photography in Rincon Puerto Rico from March 5 – 13.

Pack your camera bag dude! Surf’s up! (Good luck getting your parents to pay for this)

Rescue at Sea

Imagine after a lovely scuba dive you return to the surface to find that the anchor line of your boat has parted and your ride home is no more.  :(

What do you do? Take some pictures, of course.  :)

You are miraculously rescued by a passing boat :D

which then capsizes on the way back to port :(

and your camera is lost. :(

Then four years later somebody walking the beach finds your camera! :D

Here are the pictures and interview.

Here’s an amazing photo making the rounds on Facebook.

The photo has been “attached” to an even more amazing old San Francisco Chronicle story, which Snopes confirmed as true; but I don’t believe that the photo is of the same whale.  Both still cool all the same!

Happy FotoFriday!
