Under Watercolours installed the first webcam in the Fiji Islands at Castaway Island Resort many years ago and followed up with another one in Cozumel at Scuba Club Cozumel. Both webcams were instantly a huge hit, but it takes a strong, reliable, uninterrupted signal to serve up images every couple of seconds, which we don’t always have on remote islands. Now, everyone is so accustomed to checking the SCC webcam every day that when it does occasionally get stuck, the emails and phone calls start pouring in.
Fortunately at one of my workshops at SCC I recruited several of my students to help me add a bit of levity to the stressful minutes of webcam dysfunction. When the webcam goes down, this image goes up. I think it’s something everyone can relate to and it reminds people to chill out and smile. Hopefully you won’t have to see this image very often.
