Unscramble the Blue Letters

I would like to hears with you this morning some stories about the ocean through my work as a still photographer for National Geographic magazine. I guess I became an underwater regohohtrppa and a photojournalist because I fell in love with the sea as a chlid. And I wanted to tell stories about all the amazing things I was seeing underwater, cdieelbinr wildlife and estntginier behaviors. And after even 30 years of doing this, after 30 years of exploring the ocean, I never cease to be amazed at the nroxraayirted encounters that I have while I'm at sea. But more and more frequently these days I'm seeing terrible things underwater as well, things that I don't think most people realize. And I've been compelled to turn my camera towards these issues to tell a more cmtolpee story. I want people to see what's happening underwater, both the horror and the magic.

Original Text

I would like to share with you this morning some stories about the ocean through my work as a still photographer for National Geographic magazine. I guess I became an underwater photographer and a photojournalist because I fell in love with the sea as a child. And I wanted to tell stories about all the amazing things I was seeing underwater, incredible wildlife and interesting behaviors. And after even 30 years of doing this, after 30 years of exploring the ocean, I never cease to be amazed at the extraordinary encounters that I have while I'm at sea. But more and more frequently these days I'm seeing terrible things underwater as well, things that I don't think most people realize. And I've been compelled to turn my camera towards these issues to tell a more complete story. I want people to see what's happening underwater, both the horror and the magic.
