Photo of me taken by Heather Lawrence

The photo of me attached here is one of my favourites, taken by underwater photographer, Heather Lawrence at a modelling shoot I organized at a Manchester swimming pool with lots of glamourous fully dressed models. I have always been fascinated by water and swimming, often jumping in rivers, and lakes and the sea regardless of what I’m wearing, at least in nice weather, and the pool shot was a great event I hope to repeat some day.

Very cool shot. I can't go underwater without holding my nose, lol.

@arthurchappell great photo. I love floating on this big inflatable tire I have whenever I can find a pool to swim in.

@RasmaSandra floatation beds and tires are always good to relax on

Awesome photo shot. I like being in the water too but never got any photos taken in the water.

always worth getting some taken if there is a camera to hand

That's amazing - it looks just as if you are sitting in a normal chair.

In this case, you better learn to dive and you can get to see corals in the deep, blue sea. That will be an experience of a lifetime.

@scheng1 only ever did one dive in a pool - loved it - can't afford to repeat the experience as yet

It seems you're just sitting in the water but you're saying you're underwater. Very natural pose.

That is just awesome! My son takes photos underwater when he goes snorkeling or diving.

Are you holding your breathe down there? Like, Janet, said, it looks like you're just sitting there, maybe watching tv or something. Now if you were watching the swimmers, there should be a smile on your face.

I do like the bubbles! Not sure I have ever taken a photo underwater or had one taken of me then either.
