…how women live in their bodies.
An ongoing project.

This is a comment from a viewer on FB about this image:

""this is one of those pictures that… you figure… ‘..okay, how do I not come across as some pervy guy, here..’

What I love about this portrait (I remember when it was first put up a few days ago,)
-is the delicate sensuality of it.

It’s a very sexy shot.. but it’s not voyeuristic, there is a way that the fingertips are touching the skin, as well as black lace, that is uniquely feminine…. it’s a side of beauty that men, often miss… it’s more of a listening and feeling through listening -than ‘looking.’

it’s profoundly intimate, stunningly so, (but) anyone who has truly ever loved a woman, knows what this touch is… -how it rarely ever happens is: this is not a man touching a woman, -at best, this is how any decent man, humbled, who genuinely thinks a woman is beautiful, wants to touch her.
(truthfully, in my opinion, (just mine,) this is how I feel a woman should be touched… not grabbed, not always ‘held,’ no real pressure, just the lightest of fingertips wherever she ask.

It’s sort of like Song of Songs… (which, they used to only let adult men read, once upon a time,) it’s a required thing… something to be learned in quiet, something sacred…

Anyone who has ever truly loved a woman, (ever,) knows this is how,
—and anyone ever touched by a woman, who loves back? -also knows, this is how it feels.

to say that this is a great ‘picture,’ is like seeing everything through dusk, with the echoes of the day slowly traveling off… and simply calling it ‘a time of day.’

very quietly, bravely done. -e""
