+Virtual Photo Walks™  mission is to allow isolated people to become interactive citizens again. Utilizing the Internet, video chat and smart phones, people are able to visit and interact with mobile guides all over the world and to visit they people and places they could only dream about before.
Virtual Photo Walks reaches out to isolated individuals and communities, enlists photographers all over the world and then moderates, records and edits the interactive Walks to assure the safety and privacy of participants and to archive the experience so that the participants can share and look back on them.
 Here is a link the shows how it all got started  http://youtu.be/y1Uv7as5ZmI

Virtual Photo Walks was live broadcasting from Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, we viewed the world’s largest lava lake glow from a new vantage point near Jaggar Museum. Public affairs specialist Jessica Ferracane shared some of the latest information on Kīlauea volcano’s eruption within Halema‘uma‘u Crater, and we saw how the new 12 x telephoto worked.
