Maya@Chris: So, you said that a dragon was freed from a white orb, right? You wouldn't be talking about Reshiram by chance, would you? Man, humans can be really stupid sometimes, messing with legendaries. Can you really be so sure that black orb is gonna hold together if Zekrom, or whoever is in there, is trying to escape? It doesn't seem like a safe idea to be carrying something so powerful on your person like that, especially if just being near it hurts so badly.

In a country where about 40 percent of people self identify as indigenous, the National Indigenous Queen of Guatemala contest carries great prestige. In contrast to mainstream beauty pageants, the contestants for the Rabin Ajaw title, aged 14 to 26, have to demonstrate proficiency in their native language, Mayan traditions and worldview; awareness about mining and other threats to Mayan livelihood and resources; a nuanced view of gender roles; and leadership in their community.

The 19th century style Afghani wooden box camera used by the photographer meant that the women had to sit still for several minutes gazing into the camera, enabling a depth of engagement rarely achieved with today’s hectic technology.
