I was looking at these photos of the Cancun Underwater Museum for a travel story I'm working on but I thought they were worth sharing. It seems a good idea to feature some underwater photography here at JPG News. Four hundred concrete sculptures were submerged off the coast of the Mexican island in a bid to draw snorkelers. Taken by Jason deCaires Taylor, they appeared as part of the Offbeat Traveler column in the Los Angeles Times.
