    I borrowed a vintage Nikonos II underwater film camera from my friend John. The Nikonos II has an impressively simple design - I’m still baffled that it is waterproof. Nikonos made camera versions I-V from 1963-1984, and John told me the original Nikonos was designed by Jacques Cousteau. Way cool. I shot this first roll on Lomo 800 film with the 35mm lens. I want to try the 28mm lens calibrated for shooting underwater.

    Here’s some of what I got. Unfortunately, the above-water shots turned out better than the underwater ones, and that's not saying much. Excited to play more.
