Underwater with Kristina Sherk VI


Kristi's hair all crazy and wild reminds me of a lion's mane.

Mermaid Kristi Sherk - the "hands"


Kristi Sherk is one of the top MerPeople on the planet. She's very comfortable in the water, maintains a beautifully natural face, propels herself in the tails with great precision, positions her body with just the right blend of bends and curves, controls normally out-of-control underwater hair and, in this image, positions her arms and hands in a dancer-like grace.

As you would expect after days in warm salt water, Kristi becomes one with the ocean (Femme de la Mer).

Underwater with Kristina Sherk II


If you follow this Blog or my Wet & Underwater Portfolio, you know I like putting a model's head and/or body near the surface underwater and get both the image and it's reflection.

Mermaids in Refurbished Tank/Pool


Ah, the tank is back on-line and it saw MerBrooke (Brooke McMillan) visit last Friday. Brooke is an ICU Nurse in real life with a beautifully done first session in the land of Mer. We are sold on the conversion from Chlorine to Salt.

Lakeside Pool (underwater photo tank) Back OnLine


After repairs from the November Nor'easter, the Lakeside pool (underwater photo tank) is back online. The plaster color was supposed to match the waterline tile color but that didn't happen. However, the pool contractor suggested lowering the water level 1-2 inches to get the tile line to disappear. Some photos need the tile line; others don't.
