Underwater Photos

I took an underwater housing for the single-use, disposable flash cameras that you can buy anywhere.  At just £70, it was a good introduction to underwater photography.  It worked very well on this holiday.  However, the next year, it was a disaster - it failed to wind on after taking shots, and eventually flooded, ruining a camera.

While it still worked, I took some nice pictures:
