Diving is something that I never really fancied doing before. I always thought that it would be not only quite a risky thing to do but also something that would be a bit boring and although I had seen all of the Bond films before it was not until I purchased the entire collection on DVD a couple of weeks ago that I noticed just how much of a part diving plays in some of the movies and it got me thinking that perhaps I should think about scuba diving holidays after all.
The Key Changing Moments In The Film?
The moment or film as I should put it that really changed my mind on all of this was Thunderball, one of the many in which Sean Connery was in. A lot of this film was featured underwater and despite actually most of it being filmed in a studio I was still very much interested in believing that going on a real dive would be something that was well worth my time which would really be great.
Whilst realistically I know my chances of being ambushed when on a dive by people with harpoon guns and then thrown into a pool of man eating sharks is unlikely I still felt thrilled to go and try diving out. the great thing is I then went to find a place where diving lessons occurred and booked myself a nice little lesson. I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it, in fact so much that I went forward and booked some shark diving out in those Maldives diving locations.
So thanks Mr Bond for giving me a great new hobby to go and try out, I will keep doing this and who would have thought a movie franchise would provide me with a decent hobby to try out!
