This Photographer Is On Fire
This photographer's floor is literally hot lava. Kawika Singson of Hawaii was surprised last week to find that this snapshot of himself on a cooling lava floe—while his shoes and tripod flicker with flames—turned into an actual viral internet event. Lots of folks were convinced that the shot was fake, but I think it's pretty clearly real. The Hawaiian photographer with a penchant for photographing volcanoes says he thought it would be cool to take a picture with his shoes and tripod on fire. "It was really hot," he says. "I could stand the heat only for a few seconds." Would you be surprised to learn the photograph made Google Plus's "What's Hot" section? https://www.facebook.com/kawika.singson/photos is his facebook page.
