One chart says it all about the government and female bodies 

We’re only halfway through 2014, and state legislators have already introduced a whopping 468 restrictions intended to limit, control or otherwise regulate women’s reproductive rights.
How many comparable bills have been introduced to regulate men’s reproductive health care during this period? Zero. 
Something’s very wrong with this picture.
What would restricting male reproductive rights even look like? | Follow micdotcom



"Of the 468 proposed restrictions, 21, covering 13 states, have been adopted thus far. But much like the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling in June, the impact of these 21 bills could be felt across the country. In Virginia, for example, genetic counselors can now "refuse to provide any information to patients because of their personal religious or moral beliefs." In Arizona, helping a minor obtain an abortion without parental consent has been classified as a crime. And in Kansas, counseling materials no longer state that they are "objective, nonjudgmental and scientifically accurate."

Fran Lebowitz - If I Ruled The World. Mirabella Magazine, 1995.

Rule my world, Fran.

Went to the UES to have my shoes shined for the first time and I thought of Fran…

Same photoshoot, different shot.

Nikon D7000 w/ ML-L3 IR Remote
Nikon 20mm f/2.8 AI-S Manual Lens
Top-mounted Yongnuo YN-560 III (1/4) w/ Gary Fong
f/8 | 1/100 | ISO 200

This was actually probably taken with my 18-55mm VR II lens…

Utilizing new tips from my friend and photographer.

This time I color balanced, dodged and burned, used patch tool a lot, and did a slew of other things. After so much work, it’s hard to know what looks good anymore. I THINK this is an improvement, but, god, who knows anymore…? I know for a fact that this round is way less orange.

Practice…

Update: I added some highlights and a little sharpening. The results are undeniably excellent.

Update: Exposure

Update: At this point, I might as well include the original…

Update: I don’t know anymore…I added a painted layer of white over the wall and I dropped the opacity to 15%.

Update: OMG when does this game end? I did a better version of what I last did. I desperately need a white sweep…

Game over.
