Thanks to “Diver Laura” James for sharing that look at a California sea cucumber in local waters – “underwater dust mop” was her nickname for it, and if you view the video (which shows it, rough cut, in two speeds) you’ll see why. Meantime, a quick look at some of what’s up around West Seattle today/tonight, whatever speed you’re traveling at:

FAMILY FUN AT LINCOLN PARK: Free stories and games with the Vashon Wilderness Project – here in West Seattle, at Lincoln Park. 10:30 am; details in our calendar listing.

BABY STORY TIME: 11:30 am, Southwest Librarydetails here. (35th/Henderson)

LUNCH AND LEARN: At the Senior Center of West Seattle, today’s 11:45 am lunch presentation features Clay Eals from the Southwest Seattle Historical Society talking about the historic Belvedere totem pole that is being restored for display at the SWSHS’s Log House Museum. Call ASAP to see if you can still get a lunch reservation; number and other details here. (California/Oregon)

THIS MIGHT BUG YOU: A local collector will present an “Insect Safari,” showing more than 3,000 insect specimens from around the world at Delridge Library, 2 pm. (Delridge/Brandon)

HI-YU CONCERT IN THE PARK: See, hear, and dance to (if you feel so moved) the West Seattle Big Band tonight, free, 7 pm, on the east lawn at Hiawatha Community Center/Park. Buy a Hi-Yu button while you’re there! Here’s ours:

Bonus during a break around 7:30 pm: Applaud Judy Pickens for her outstanding community service, as she receives this year’s Orville Rummel Trophy from American Legion Post 160, to be followed up with a VIP ride in this Saturday’s West Seattle Grand Parade.

BELLYDANCING AND KARAOKE: That’s the double bill tonight at Skylark CafĂ© and Club, 7:30 for the Alauda bellydancing showcase, 9 pm for Baby Ketten Karaoke. (3803 Delridge Way SW)

Lots more nightlife on the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar!

  1. Laura what do you use for lighting? A led light pannel?

  2. HI Jim, on this dive I used 2 SOLA 2000 LED lights. (http://www.lightandmotion.com/underwater/sola2000v.html)
    I use an assortment of lights, but my general go to kit is either the SOLA’s for Macro & portrait, or dual Halcyon HID’s either 24w or 50w depending on the size of the item i’m shooting with a single SOLA 600 (smaller LED) in the center (so 3 lights total) for close focus fill.

  5. *Laura* is cool, and I’ve never even met her! Her jaw-dropping nature videos are among my favorite things on the internet.
