August 5, 2008: Down under As a part-time sports shooter, there is no greater assignment than the Olympics. 17 days of great action and top-notch emotion. During the days leading up to the Opening Ceremony, I like to visit some of the venues that I will be frequenting and accustom myself to the lay of the land. Today, I stopped by the National Aquatics Center and checked out the underwater window at the diving pool. I had seen a very cool shot by a Getty Images photographer shot from this angle so I tried to make something a little different. Here, during practice, a diver returns to the surface.
