A new look - Dubai, Burj Al Arab, UAE 2014
You don’t even have to hesitate in guessing where this is taken, just one of many on the list of “cool things” about this city. #london
Sights like this are getting more and more rare because demand for Rhino horn (made of keratin) is increasing at an alarming rate. The latest trend is coming from young, wealthy Vietnamese who believe a little bit of horn in their wine will cure a hangover.
The sanctuary in Uganda where this photo was taken, now has 80 armed rangers standing guard 24/7 over their 13 Rhino’s; South Africa is starting to inject their Rhino horns with poison in a desperate attempt to dissuade the end user from buying a potentially lethal product.
I know YOU don’t buy Rhino horn but… if you happen to be one of the individuals who might believe that keratin will cure a hangover and thus be tempted at a party, I leave you with this thought:
Rhino horn is the same thing as toenails.
An excellent article dialoguing the use of model releases and whether it’s necessary. If you are selling your images, this is worth a read.
