#still pretty sad about this#still pretty sad about dean always#supernatural#i just watched the constantine pilot and it just took me back#to the spn golden era and how similar the two texts are#/how much they drew on constantine and sandman for their whole mythos#and it was making me hella nostalgic for like season 2#and that awesome run in season 3 culminating in jus in bello (WHAT A FUCKING EPISODE OH MAN)
September 2014 marks 100 years since the extinction of the Passenger Pigeon. It’s estimated that the population of these migrant birds fell from 3.7 billion individuals to 0 in about 40 years, largely due to human impact, habitat destruction, and a lack of regulation on hunting, trapping, and their use in competitive tourneys.
Remember Martha, the last of her kind, and what she represents as not just a hallmark of her species, but as a symbol for our fragile environments today.
Dmitry Gomberg: Akrak Vazha (The Shepherd’s Way)
This is a story about Tusheti - mountain region in the Republic of Georgia. Tusheti lies near the Chechen border and it is culturally closer to Chechens than to Georgians. The story is about shepherds who travel every summer to their ancestors’ land Tusheti and than return to spend the winter at the bottom of the mountain. Twice a year they travel with their sheep through the pass in the Caucasus which is 3,000 meters high.
I was staying and documenting life of the Shepherds in the Caucasus mountains for 5 years.
These people have been cheese makers since before Christ.
Their life is simple and harsh, but beautiful.
