Elephants Tortured By Fire

Screen Shot 2014-03-04 at 2.10.17 PM

It is the nastiest windiest snowiest night of this winter in the outer banks. I am staying home. So I am pretending I am in Malaysia where I once saw elephants tortured by fire to tame them for work.

  • “Legal Disclaimer: No animals were harmed in the making of this photograph.”

  • Hopefully, you were able to shoot the people training them like that. Maybe get a photograph or two as well.

  • I wonder why it is that Asian elephants are trainable in this fashion, whereas if you try to tame an African elephant using this or what the Thais call the crush what you end up with is a elephant that will do its level best to kill you just as soon as it ram a tusk through your guts. In other news, my hopes of international travel this year have just suffered yet another setback due to the usual health reasons, and yes, I hate the usual health reasons more than you can possibly imagine, but this does bring up another possibility: I can choose between a Panasonic GX7 and a Fuji X100s, but the latter is five hundred dollars or so more than the former, and while, from what I’ve read so far, I am ready to concede that the Fuji is the better camera, I am not sure that it’s five hundred dollars better. So has anyone used them both and can offer an opinion here? Thanks.
