Personal web pages of Ajay Joneja

My wife Kitty and I learnt scuba diving in Fall 2001, and we have been enthusiasts since. I picked up UW photography in Jan 2003, and this page was mainly set up to share UW pictures from our trips. At the bottom, there are some notes/pictures of other travels.

Kayaking in Hong Kong

As of summer 2009, we got ourselves a Hobie Oasis Tandem Kayak. It's been great fun exploring the islands and waters of the port shelter area. Kitty's old Canon S80 in its slightly leaky housing has now been fully relegated to Kayak cam, and the links below are a blog of sorts.
