Nice setup. Why cut off the hand?

I certainly did not want to but that's the absolute height limit I had - the shadows at the top of the image are of the curtain rail. I didn't have enough space to create the scene as I wanted. I could have cropped more off the arm to avoid the avulsion, but I needed the photo to look as long as possible for the pose (I am a lot broader than Elvis Presley was).

I was trying to resemble this while dancing with a wooden chair: ' . substr('//3.bp.blogspot.com/_uej3fplVReE/TSecaa5k_hI/AAAAAAAAACU/aCJQiNE4wbg/s320/jail_house_rock.jpg', strrpos('//3.bp.blogspot.com/_uej3fplVReE/TSecaa5k_hI/AAAAAAAAACU/aCJQiNE4wbg/s320/jail_house_rock.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I love your stance, your chair, the shadows. Looks like you are really getting down with your partner there.

Nice period appropriate pic, even if the original lyric was set in jail. "Jailhouse Rock"
