There would besides exist several lessons along using routers, saws and also the numerous power tools that are utilized while in the industry. All the lessons will probably be really pleasant in your case while you discover to make artistic as well as wonderful furnishings.

Miley and Billy Ray seriously looked like they were lovers, not father and daughter. That's the pic that bothered me. I just think of myself at that age posing like that with my father! eeeew

Well said ff. The first thought I had was she sure looks like Golem from Lord of the Rings. That blue lighting makes her look cadaverous and the boney bits don't help either. Maybe that was the extended metaphor that Annie L. was going for. She's got the ring and she doesn't want to let go of it? I'm sure it's flattering to have A.L. chosen to shoot you and to have Vanity Fair agree to cover you and your book deal, but I wouldn't put my kid in that room. You just couldn't possibly know what might end up sounding OK. Tub of milk? There were ways that they could have approached this that wouldn't have put her in such suggestive positions, but I think that's where her show and career are pointing so it was a no brainer. But the Golem shot, that's Annie getting back at her. That's not beauty that's curse.

Artistically, I love that picture. She almost looks like a poster of Les Miserables. I hate the sexy ones with her dad, though. She's dressed inappropriately there, and posing like a lover. Too wierd.

Here's my problem with this arguement that Leibovitz is so 'highly regarded' and held in such great esteem and has photo'd such wonderful subjects, ad nauseum. It's the presumption that this alone means the woman isn't subject to error, bad taste or a bad day - in short, can't fail. Sorry but she's just not exempt from poor judgement, taste or form just because her other stuff turned came good. I judge people on what they're doing now, not what their rep is. Their rep just puts it into a better context. Sometimes something that sucks, is just something that sucks. She may be great but theres just nothing artistically meritous in 'that' photo. And if it's intended to be that innocent, why does her hair have to be wet and dishevelled, and why do her lips have to be bright red? Please don't tell me I'm seeing sexual implicaitons where there aren't any because I'm debased by society. I'm sure even the lobotomised can register the implications of bright red lips. I'll give it to Leibovitz, she may be being deliberately ironic with this particular study BUT it's still EXACTLY the kind of photo that any unimaginative amateur pulled off the street can droll up. And again, why the hell is the most interesting and 'edgy' depiction of a 'squeaky clean' 15-year old female immediate recourse to the Lolita look? Seriously, is that really all you've got? Because the implicit message is that's all a 15-year old female can do to hold anyone's interest: become product or become visual stimulant - what else could your young body possibly do? This is ultimately what 'the kids' pick up on. Why? Because it's what women in the public eye in their 20s, 30s, and 40s are doing. That's just a pathetic indictment of our current culture. I maintain something far more interesting and thought provoking could have been drummed up with less make up, more clothes, and without the need to subject me to her back ribs. Ultimately it would have been more interesting overall if Miley herself had seen the real reason why that didn't need to be the only way she could be provocative, and found a way that suited herself more instead of being intimidated by those around her - THAT'S the message young women should be getting, that it's okay to put their feelings first in these kinds of situations. But then, this is something most grown women can't master - which is again another problem with the culture. If we're explaining it's okay because kids are becoming more sexual anyway, why can't they become more assertive and thoughtful in situations that merit it. Shouldn't both go hand in hand, or does it just suits some people that you have the body but not the brain?

yes I do think if it was her mom it would be just as sick. I don't think any kid boy girl should be laying all over there parents mom or dad.. Once they can walk there really isn't much need besides the occasionaly "mom I am sick" for any kid to be layed out in any parents lap. And NO reason should they be between the legs that is just disturbing...If any regular person off the street walked in to sears and requested that their daughter have photos made like this there wouldn't even be any question on how sick it is. Why does her being famous and her dad being semi-famous even bring up the question on weither it's approprate or not? I just don't get it. Guys are sitting in jail right now for looking at pics similar to these as they should be.....famous or not she is only 15...where do you draw the line? no shirt is ok? I mean what's next this is black and white why is it grey b/c she is famous?

Okay, on the Miley side what happened to grrl power and " it's my back deal with it?" Or "it's my Dad deal with it?" It's the mealy mouth slip slide appease the mouse aspect that's most nauseating here.

shame on her parents! i would say shame on her too, but if her parents don't know better how could she?

And, something else that's jumping out at me, so read this as an extension of my original post: she looks sick. Her face is ghostly pale and (I know this is just the arch in her back, but still) you can see all her ribs through her skin. She looks cold - almost consumptive. The lighting is bedroom lighting. Don't YOU want to reach through the screen and give her a hug? It's at the point where I wish it WASN'T Miley in the picture so everyone could appreciate the artistic intention rather than the famous face and the deluge of freaking statements.

Annie Leibovitz is nobody's fool. She's also the mother of three daughters. These photos are taken digitally, they're available for viewing seconds after the shutter is clicked. There were no accidents here. She photographed what she saw plain and simple.

ling made a very good point. we are so upset because annie gave us just what we wanted to see. good photographers and artists have a way of doing things like that. showing us our evil underbelly. annie showed us the little lamb for slaughter and its making us all a little sick and uncomfortable about the way we all contribute to consuming a little girl, photographed, in concert, on TV, in magazines-or anywhere. its more a portrait of the american public than miley.
