And yes yes yes!!!

Well, if I was disappointed with how I couldn't manage to line up all the elements of the last shot, I am giddily happy with how these photos turned out (after massive manipulation, natch). Because as you can see from this photo below of Jean Baptiste Carpeaux's Ugolino and His Sons--extracted by me from someone else's photo on the the web--the hands don't line up in any kind of intuitive way at first glance. Still, I was convinced a hands-centric shot was mine for the taking! I was really lucky to sneak in the shots I took, crouched way low and at an odd angle, before the security guard politely asked me to stop taking photos. In my defense, I didn't know the room I was in was off-limits to photography.

SO tempting to label this a self-portrait. But, at last, I resisted.
