I watch for these kinds of things and I think you all should know about the eruptions taking place on Mount Sinabung in Indonesia. Folks chuckle at me when I talk about “super volcanos” and the impact they might have on this planet compared to us human beings. This regular volcano in Sumatra has been erupting on and off since September of 2013. It cranked up back in 2010 after more than 400 years of peace and quiet.

I’m on picture number 3 out of 100 to complete in 2012. As I’ve been developing this project the process and material of the project has become clear to me. What I’m going to do is use only my camera on my iPhone 4s and I will use finishing tools either on the phone, iPad or Mac but no Photoshop, Lightroom or other pro tools. I’m also going to try and focus on small objects. This gives the project cohesion. Enjoy.
