Trade 78 | Léa Riera

There was one catch with Trade 76 and it was pretty serious. Beer wasn't included in the trade. Okay, perhaps it doesn't fall under "essential" living needs, particularly given everything else wonderous Pole Pole was providing... but it does get a little hot on Mafia Island and sometimes water doesn't cut it.

Working with in house marine biologist, Léa, organising what and how to photograph for the lodge and excursions we hashed out a mini trade for a few shots including her ammonites inspired artwork on the back of her arm in exchange for a few rounds in the nearby village bar. I will add these were all taken 'on the job'; we were working.

Well, perhaps not during the dive practice.
