Skin deep






Self-portrait (in need of moisturizer) in photo I. In photo 2, the skin is on a drum brought to me by a friend from Uganda.

I like the contrast. So what you're saying is, is that as we age, the best we can hope for is to be stretched across a drum and beaten. :)

Ha! I think what I'm saying is that yeah, skin that's taut looks a lot better than skin that's saggy! I think there is that fine line between "taut" and "stretched beyond the point of ever being elastic again". I guess this principle is what keeps plastic surgeons in business, eh?

Cool photos... they make me feel so dry, though, and I love the analysis going on between you and Julie.
