Underneath These Clothes We Are All Completely Naked
"Under everything, just another human being." -Eddie Vedder
I have my shield and armor, my disguise, my masks - they protect me and hide me.... I wake up in the morning and they are there, I go to work and, perhaps, another veneer slips into place, I meet new people or visit old friends - other veils there are. Then it's 3 AM, and I lay revealed in the quiet darkness... my unadorned self - all this in common with every one every where.
This image stems from my thoughts about the facades I carry around (and use from time to time) and that I expect I am not alone in this reaction to living in the world. The title actually comes from an expression I use when someone is talking about my fashion choice - "yeah? well, you know, underneath all these clothes, I am completely...." ;)
The main shot is an IR image from an occasional shopping excursions to downtown Seattle and the IR SP from around the house.
