Personal Volcano..

Someone mentioned that another of my photos looked like the tiny planet described in the book "The Little Prince", and when I pressed a piece of clay into the lens and surrounding lens mount of a thrift store camera and it produced this little cone, I had to follow this idea to its obvious conclusion.

 

When I was little I read about the volcano Paricutin in Mexico, which was born one day in a farmer's field and soon grew into a little cone then a big cone and finally swallowed the town.At the time I thought this was absolutely the coolest thing I'd ever heard in my life, and wished It would happen in MY backyard...don't think I've entirely abandoned that feeling either....;-)...
