This is a photo idea I'm still working on for my project. It may or may not make it into the final 10.

I was trying to make beauty seem out of context in this photo by distracting the simplicity of hands with rings, painted nails and a silky patterned back ground. It almost works for me, but I'm still tweaking the composition. I want to make all the objects considered beautiful as more of a background so that my eyes are drawn more to the simplicity of skin.

I'll be posting individual photos for a while unless two work well together so that I can brainstorm my ideas about them. I have to be able to write a cohesive paper and talk about an idea when I present my work to my peers, so this is good practice.
