  1. Hey Cedric, just checking back in with you. What is your status where you live? Are they evacuating? Be safe. That first shot you can send into a magazine or something. It is scary but outstanding.

      1. Maybe the earthquakes happen because of the volcanic rumblings . . . oh, I hope the Trouser holds up during the earthquakes! Guess I shouldn’t poke fun since it is rather a serious thing. Excuse me.
        Stay safe and not too close to the volcano while trying to get a photo 😉

  4. An erupting volcano is always a fascination and a fear. Have you heard that our volcano in Hawaii, Kilauea, has been erupting fairly steadily for 20+ years and lava has wiped out many houses, but people come from far and wide to see it. You can get fairly close, therefore it is a tourist attraction.
