Shooting Details. Maldives

This sphere shooting story began many-many years ago, about 10 years earlier, when I had got an idea to go in for diving. To realize this I had to attend the courses held in the 6 meters deep swimming pool of Olympiyskiy Sport Complex.

It was an ordinary education except of one curious occurrence which I still remember. During one of the last studies we were practicing the skill how to help another diver breathe when the oxygen in his/her cylinder has been finished. According to the instructions this diver turns to his partner in pair - baddy. It is required that the divers-beginners dive together for the purpose of security. So, the first diver turns to his partner and shows with a special sign that he needs to breathe, then the baddy shows another sign OK and after that both divers breathe using one hose one after another and, in general, it's not difficult. Perhaps, this hose is named with a special term but 10 years passed by and I forgot it, well, I'll name it as a hose.

So, we swam in a circle in the swimming-pool, showed the signs in turns one another and breathed from the hose of a partner. It was funny! Then the process became boring and we did anything we were able to. So, I was swimming and didn't disturb anyone and suddenly saw the following strange situation. My baddy, Alex, who was gamboled with somebody in the other corner of the swimming-pool, in a moment turned and accelerating began to swim faster to me simultaneously  swinging his arms. First, I laughed at the manner he was swinging the arms but then, when he became closer, I was surprised by his big eyes. The further events lasted a couple of seconds. Having become closer, without any doubt Alex pulled out, I'd even say the he rooted out the hose together with the mouthpiece from my mouth. He did it so sharply that I wonder why my teeth were not pulled out...May be the reason is that I just opened the mouth being shocked and extremely surprised by the things were happening. Without any delay Alex put my mouthpiece into his mouth and began to breathe feverishly. It was evident that he needs it right now and he likes my air very much. Some time ago, when I remembered that it would be good if I breathe, it wasn't a simplest thing to take my hose back from him.

In general, the reason was that the instructor who saw that my baddy had relaxed his vigilance and had left his partner, he (the instructor) swam up to him from the back side and turned off the valve of the cylinder which allows air goes inside the hose to the diver. When Alex decided to breathe a portion of fresh air once again he understood that there was no more air. However, instead he should ask to breathe using a hose of a neighbor, he decided to come back to his baddy and strictly follow the instructions. But when he had swum up to me, Alex completely forgot about the signs interchange and as a result he just pulled out the hose from my mouth. And then the instructor came swimming, shook his finger at Alex and turned on the valve.

That was the beginning :) well, I've been distracted from the photo and next time, when we expose a new underwater panorama, I'll continue telling you the story of this sphere shooting.
