Much of the geography in Bali is volcanic and a short walk from the hotel is “the blowhole”. Here a small inlet in the volcanic rock faces to the ocean and every few minutes as a swell passes there is a blast of spray as a wave crashes in.

There isnt much influence of health and safety regulations in Bali so it is possible to walk right to the edge. I watched this guy take several selfies getting closer to the edge each time.

I enjoyed the basic photograph but I enjoyed more adding the colour and texture that represented the absurdity of the selfie at all costs mentality. Sticking your head into a crashing blowhole or a volcano seems like more than you need for a photo….
