Kilauea volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island: Videos, photos and a story

Kilauea volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island is on a path to destroy the town of Pahoa, home to 950 people. I visited the volcano in 2011 with Photo Safari Hawaii, on assignment for Air Canada’s enRoute. My article explores what it’s like to take a photo lesson on an active volcano. The videos show a little slice of life there—especially the last one, which is of a local resident explaining life on the volcano. At the end of the post is a gallery of photos from my lesson.

‘Transparent’ flash review

One their own, each of “Transparent’s” subplots is fascinating and worth watching. But taken as a whole, there’s just too much going on and the show comes off as a bit forced. Consider it the opposite of “Downton Abbey,” where very little takes place (Dinner! Breakfast! Dinner again!), no plot is worthy of your time, and you suspect the entire series was written over a single afternoon tea.
