New York chicks rock! And Henry Hargreaves, photographer, -breast enthusiast- made an excellent book with them. So, no academic analysis nor the universal truth that looking and talking about boobs is just a lot of fun, just 4 words; Boobs in 3-D.
Enjoy!

Mr. G just came back from the garage with his new coffin tank installed. That tank needed a Black Needle touch so I covered it with leather and riveted it to our signature black selvedge denim!
