A Sexy Creature From the Black Lagoon

Urged by a reader for a more “dampened” shot, I have changed my profile picture to a recent photography taken by a colloborator and friend. There were also some comments about our disgruntled mug shots. You guys are relentless! This picture may qualify me for the sexiest Sb blogger! I just have to figure how to get Peter out of the running.

Off topic, but I am trying to convince this friend, a terrestrial ecologist, to write up his experiences for DSN about a ROV dive I took him on last year.

  1. I was wondering when and how long it would take for an updated picture. What about Peter doing the same? I await the revealing.
