Photographer's Note

Meanwhile, back in Asheville ... this is a scene from an art show at the skateboard shop downtown, which yes, in addition to selling skateboards, does have an art gallery, too :)

The title is a play on two things: 1) the expression in English "to wear your heart on your sleeve" ~ meaning you don't hide your emotions, (especially the identity of who you are in love with); and 2) in body art terms, a "sleeve" refers to arm tattoos ~ a 'full sleeve' would be an arm that has tattoos all over it, from the shoulder to the hand. There are also quarter sleeves, half sleeves, and 3/4 sleeve according to the amount of art that has been inked into the skin.

This particular evening, I was a bit entranced with the visual display of art (of all kinds) around me. The photo is a little soft, I realize, but it was taken in available light and (as usual) quite quickly so as not to draw attention to myself or otherwise disrupt the moment.
