a glimpse

 

glimpse: THIN CRUST | Making for but one minuscule percent of our planet’s mass, the crust we walk on is a fine layer in every sense of the word: all life we know happens on this thin stage, separating us from an underneath, where lava flows like blood through earth’s veins. Masaya volcano in Nicaragua is a portal to that largely unknown underworld with its all-consuming furnace and fumes. A vent for earth’s hot breath, it constantly exhales sulfur dioxide that fuses seamlessly with the placid clouds of the heavens above.
