WARNING: THIS SITE FEATURES ORIGINAL THINKING...Jim Croce once sang Don't tug on Superman's cape..., which seems like reasonable advice should we not wish to anger the supreme powers. We do have this duality in our culture: the Superman that is the state collective, the leftist call to a politics of meaning managed by the state, the deification of "we're from the government and we'll take care of you" - versus the Superman that celebrates individual freedom, private property, freedom of conscience, free enterprise, and limited government. We humbly take on the latter's mantle and, eschewing the feeble tug, we dare to PULL, in hope of seeing freedom's rescue from the encroaching nanny state. We invite you, dear reader, to come and pull as well... Additionally, if you assume that means that we are unflinching, unquestioning GOP zombies, that would be incorrect. We reject statism in any form and call on individuals in our country to return to the original, classical liberalism of our founders. (We're also passionate about art, photography, cooking, technology, Judeo/Christian values, and satire as unique, individual pursuits of happiness to celebrate.)

Seattle Dive
Filed in: Current Affairs, Photography

No, this isn't about Jake's favorite hangout.

I went to West Seattle since I got that last set of pictures that turned out pretty well.

Sky conditions weren't so good this last time - but I happened upon a group of divers that were heading out into Puget Sound - in the dark. The fading light and long exposure times made for some fairly surreal images:



There was a large group and they were going in the water mostly by twos.

If you weren't able to see the tanks and the diving truck by the shore, you might think they were indigenous sea mammals. Click just below to see more pictures ... four pictures will load.


They worked their way out  into deeper water - I don't know what they were looking for in the dank.


Some waited for the ritual to be completed.


They carried little green lights to find their way back.


In the dark, even slow moving wet suit monsters can't be frozen in time.

Night diving must be cool. Your photographs are really something. They make me want to be there. And do you ever sleep?

EMCEE: Ana, the night diving seemed kind of scary to me - they had these little green lights and it looked like they could see about a foot. But the whole scene was very photogenic I thought and they didn't mind me hanging around. You guys will have to plan a trip up.

I've always thought that I could sleep when I was dead - there's too much livin' to do in the meantime! Once in a while I crash... See ya!

It is kind of cool ... except for those things that go "bump in the night". Only thing you can do is swim a little faster.

Those are great pix.

EMCEE: It's those "bump in the night" things that worry me - I mean in the Puget Sound that could be an Orca or Humpback - that could be quite a 'bump'! And Orca's can do something like 50 knots. I'm stayin' out o' that water thanks! Thanks for liking the pix, means a lot to me m'lady.

Seattle seems to be the place to be. So far I've got you, Jake, Aaron, is Sondra out there? Who else? No one but McGehee and me in Georgia so far as I know.

Bob is pretty near.

Posted by: gail at Jul 23, 2005 8:28:12 PM

Actually, Bob's in Eastern Washington right on the Idaho border. Spokane, more or less, and Sondra's in Olympia, which is about an hour-hour-and-a-half south of Seatlle.

There are, of course, lots of NW bloggers - most outside 'our' circle - in addition to SondraK I've had meetings or at least email correspondence with Sound Politics (one of the largest blogs in existence - Shark and friends), The Flag of The World (Timothy Goddard), Ninme, Hamilton's Pamphlets (Alexander), Pajama Jihad (Nathan), and I've had drinks with Jeff and Steve from Digital Browm Pajamas. These are all great folks and you can visit them from my 'friends' list on the sidebar. Cheers!
