Back in the days when I had a respectable office job, I got bored a lot. (I’m sure this never happens to anyone else with respectable office jobs.) So I kept myself mentally occupied by thinking of new projects, sorting out lists of clients I needed to touch base with, and occasionally, just daydreaming (ok, more than just occasionally).
While wrapping up preparation for my trip to Lembeh, I made a bootable backup of my laptop hard drive. In the process of reviewing what’s on my hard drive, I came across the product of what must have been a particularly uneventful day at work many years ago, and/ or the product of boredom-driven delirium.
It’s not quite Shakespeare, but heck, Shakespeare wasn’t an underwater photographer…
Ode to the Sea Gods
Salt and sea, sand and rubble,
Bless my camera free from trouble.
Never a leak my housing to suffer,
Nor busted lens from which to recover.
Annual service I promise to get,
And charging of batteries not to forget.
Keep o-rings supple, lest strobes misfire,
And mis’rable ulcers I acquire.
Let not this fate befall me ever,
Good photos to take shall I endeavour.
Sand and rubble, salt and sea
Please keep my camera trouble free!
