  1. Very cool pairing. I see lots of women with hennaed hands and feet in Abu Dhabi all the time. In fact, we had women doing henna at our year-end brunch just a few days ago. And of course when I look at Arabic, I can't read it -- I only see the design element. Like the henna designs.

  2. Naaaaiiicceeee... i have nothing witty or constructive to say. I just really really liked this pairing.

  3. Thanks for commenting, Mariel. It's nice to hear from someone other than one of the photographers. Glad you like the pairing!

  4. this pairing was very funky...i got the henna done around halloween...and was sad to see it fade away little by little
