Wednesday’s Wackiness: Underwater Photos

I haven’t done Wednesday’s Wackiness for a long time. I’m sure you’ve all missed it terribly, right?

This week’s wacky comes from a Smithsonian collection of 1950s photographs taken underwater by Bruce Mozert, a pioneer in underwater photography. What makes these photos so wacky is that Mozert recreated above-water activities, such as barbecuing, reading the newspaper, and – one of my favorites – talking on the phone.

If you really dig these photos, be sure to look for Gary Monroe’s book, The Underwater Photography of Bruce Mozert.
