Distressing To Discover That ‘Skin Whitening’ Is Becoming Popular In Sri Lanka.

This appeared on my Facebook as being from ‘Colombo, Sri Lanka’. Name caught my eye. Click image to access.

The claims being made for Glutathione.

Oh, dear! I guess it was inevitable. Brown people wanting to be white. Yikes.

Well, I of all people, cannot claim to be surprised. My adoptive mother, as I have mentioned before, so hated being dark. She would have opted for this like there was no tomorrow.

A shame.

I had never heard of ‘Glutathione’. I knew that there were drugs that claimed to make you whiter but it was not something that was of import to I. So, you live and learn.

Did some quick Googling on ‘Glutathione’. Appears that it is not harmful per se and MIGHT do some of what is claimed above. But, whitening skin is not on the list of things it is good at doing.

Yes, my life would have been very different if I had been white. But, having been born brown I would never have considered any kind of chemical treatment to make me white. But, that is I. Maybe I should have.

I just got the November 2018 issue today and only had time to quickly scan through the article and BEAUTIFUL photos.

It is a topic dear to my heart since I have seen, first hand, this year, as to what is happening to TRIBAL LANDS.

The “Bad Ol’ Days” are back again with the Indians, yet again, with their backs to the wall.

My concern was what was happening at Canyon de Chelly.

The NatG article is mainly about Utah and “Bears Ears“.

Please try to read this article. Hence, this post. Thank YOU.

‘Western Digital’ (WD) ‘My Passport Wireless SSD’ — A Great Photo Backup Solution When Travelling.

Click to ENLARGE and study here. Find it on Amazon or at wdc.com.

Facebook advertising works! This is proof. This ‘WD‘ ad. for this product kept on popping up on my FB Timeline. I eventually caved in and clicked. Glad I did.

I do NOT need it right now BUT I am glad I know that such a product exists.

Losing pictures you took on a trip, while still on the road, is a nightmare that all photographers are familiar with.

I try to minimize it by using a different SD card each day. That is because I do not like to lug a PC when I travel.

This, or similar, might be a great solution. I am going to check it out further prior to my next long trip.

In the interim I wanted to share it with YOU. Check it out.
