A friend once told me (while discussing wines & spirits) to learn about coffees too… " Because you’ll eventually need them, if / when you enjoy too much good spirits."How to be an Adult 201
i’ve been working at a liquor store that specializes in mostly wine for about 5 years, and while i’ve gained a decent amount of wine knowledge, there’s a shit ton here that i didn’t know about!
Wine is a huge and amazing and tasty world of wonder and experience and learning to pair a good wine with a meal is SO satisfying aaaaaaaaaa
Just… one of those posts I reblog because… HOLY SHIT! I DIDN”T KNOW THAT!
"in 2009, i planned to become a guest of 31 secluded and visually unique tribes. i wanted to witness their time honoured traditions, join in their rituals and discover how the rest of the world is threatening to change their way of life forever. most importantly, i wanted to create an ambitious aesthetic photographic document that would stand the test of time, a body of work that would be an irreplaceable ethnographic record of a fast disappearing world. i didn’t start this project anticipating that i could stop the world from changing. i purely wanted to create a visual document that reminds us and generations to come of how beautiful the human world once was." - jimmy nelson

This series of portraits represents a small slice of a larger project documenting the Samburu as they assimilate into a life of increasing influence from technology and western values.
