"Real adventure is not polished. It is not the result of some marketing budget. There is no hashtag for it. It burns brightest on the map's edges but it exists in all of us. It exists at the intersection of the imagination and the ridiculous." - Kyle Dempster

The first historical recording of sake was in the legend of Kojiki, the oldest Japanese chronicle. It is said that once there was an evil dragon, with 8 heads, who year after year was attacking a village, each time devouring a girl. But Susanoo, the Shinto god of sea and storms, found an ingenious solution to stop the dragon: he asked the villagers to prepare sake, then he filled 8 cups with sake and waited for the dragon. When the dragon arrived, he drunk from the cups and fell asleep… Susanoo cut him with the sword… and finally he married the girl… (^_^)

NEW BLOG POST: How to Photograph Holi. This colorful Hindu festival is a photographers dream and nightmare at the same time. Colored powder and water are thrown and painted on people - beautiful to photograph, but also concerning from a gear standpoint. Here are a few tips if you are attending Holi to take pictures with a DSLR. http://www.ottsworld.com/blogs/how-to-photograph-holi/
