Remember this next time you walk up to the ticket window of your local movie theater with $10 in your hand. The Media (Accidentally?) missed this one!!!! Please read this: The troops oversees would like you to send it to everybody you know. Subject: Denzel Washington, and Brooks Army Medical Center. Don't know whether you heard about this but Denzel Washington and his family visited the troops at Brook Army Medical Center , in San Antonio , Texas, (BAMC) the other day. This is where soldiers who have been evacuated from Germany come to be hospitalized in the United States , especially burn victims. There are some buildings there called Fisher Houses. The Fisher House is a Hotel where soldiers' families can stay, for little or no charge, while their soldier is staying in the Hospital. BAMC has quite a few of these houses on base, but as you can imagine, they are almost filled most of the time. While Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC, they gave him a tour of one of the Fisher Houses. He asked how much one of them would cost to build. He took his check book out and wrote a check for the full amount right there on the spot. The soldiers overseas were amazed to hear this story and want to get the word out to the American public, because it warmed their hearts to hear it. The question is - why do: Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Tom Cruise and other Hollywood fluff make front page news with their ridiculous anticsand Denzel Washington's Patriotism doesn't even make page 3 in the Metro section of any newspaper except the Local newspaper in San Antonio . A true American and friend to all in uniform! This needs as wide a distribution as we can create. Please share it!

                    Algae Lamps  Invention
French biochemist and Shamengo pioneer Pierre Calleja has invented this impressive streetlight that is powered by algae which absorbs CO2 from the air. We have featured algae-powered lamps before but this one takes out 1 ton (!) of CO2 per year. This is as much CO2 as as a tree absorbs on average during its entire life.

Manila, Philippines. 

I could not remember this little girls name. But she was very curious of my camera. She requested me to take a photo of her playing the hula hoop. She was so happy to be photographed and kept asking for more photos.. Kuya, photo me, Kuya photo me! I remember her sweet voice.

At the end I hugged her and swing her around like a hula hoop. She was overjoyed. To me she was a little princess. She was so adorable.

Children are employed for their small sizes and cheap salary. They could easily crawl into those small pits behind.

But the condition is really terrible. Hot, smoky, polluted and bad for health.

G+ Quick Check | #7 Photographer on Fire (Hawaii)

The photo is real, according to Kawika Singson. He stood up on the burning lava flow for just a few seconds, while Chris Hirata took the shot. Note that Singson is a pro photographer "specialized" in lava photo ops. His comments about the hot stunt:

Always trying to be creative, I thought it would be pretty cool (hot!) to take a lava pic with my shoes and tripod on fire while photographing lava so that's what I did. That's real lava real flames and it was really hot! I could stand the heat only for a few seconds.
(see the original HD photo:

Yes, that's real lava, real flames, and its really really hot! I was actually holding my breath for this shot as the hot gasses were very intense! 
It's all good ,if people think it's fake its alright. I'm not trying to prove anything to anyone! I enjoy doing what I do, you can enjoy it with me or try to shoot it down either way, its all good! 
Yes, I do try to get right in there without vaporizing myself. I try to go in after shots that most people will say "no way"! Then of course your gonna hear people say it's photoshopped which is fine with me!
This is not my job and I don't make a cent off my photos. It's a hobby and passion. 

This is what happens when you wear your running shoes out to the lava flow! lol! Lucky I did have another pair of shoes with me.
(see the damaged shoes:

I knew it would be a cool photo of me taking a pic of lava while standing on lava with my tripod and shoes on fire but never expected it to go where it's going now and still climbing..1080 shares...1800 likes in 4 days crazy lol!!
Always gotta give a big mahalo's to Chris Hirata. He's the one who took this photo for me.

I'm totally blown away!! One photo!... The responses... world wide... messages... non-stop!.. My computers overheating!! lol!

Sometimes you have to do whatever it takes to take the right shot.
