Someone else inquired about the photo and this was my response. You may not agree with my selection, but this might clarify the context:

“Thank you for noticing the photo. I spend a lot of time trying to capture the right mood.

I never found exactly what I wanted, but this woman seemed a bit mysterious with her exposed shoulders and slightly askew make-up/hair: has she been used and is going to finally make a change/assert herself? Was she about to be used but stopped it in time? Does she even realize she’s being used? Does she care?

I’m not certain what her story is but it felt ambiguous.

On the other hand, I was able to be very clear, never wear more than mascara (if I get REALLY crazy I wear a little eyeliner), and, of course, was never naked with the “suitor” in this story!”

Thank you for reading.
