I shot a series of images from the Volcano -both in daytime and evening. Just when I was about to leave, I had to go back and take another look. All my gear was in my car already and all I had on me was my iPhone. I shot a few more images - but this time I had an idea -instead of shooting the volcano, I wanted to do something different. I wanted to capture people. I knew what I wanted to shoot - but how to go about it in a crowd of people was hard. I finally found a couple. Their friends where trying to take a photo of them facing the camera with the volcano behind them -using a flash camera . I quickly asked them if I could help and take one too. Only challenge was they were Japanese and very little English. I made it work using a sort of sign language. They were so happy. I sent them the file immediately.
