Colonial fantasy

This strikes me as the oddest photo shoot. Nostalgia for colonialism, a designer blanket on a baby elephant, and the romance of your jeep breaking down in the middle of a river? I hope the Maasai community and the elephant trust got some well-targeted money out of the deal. I don’t know if I’m offended (BH, should I be?) so much as the whole spectacle seems very odd and irrelevant. On a selfish note, I wish I were going to be as CLEAN as Keira Knightley is in the pictures…

One thought on “Colonial fantasy

  1. that is so weird. and a little gross. i think you can be offended, but you don’t have to do so if you don’t want (how did i become the expert on this stuff?). I still never got over the fact that during the “prince harry dressed as hitler for halloween” scandal, william was dressed as a zulu behind him and caught no flak.
