With rings on her fingers...






Punam Bean's photographs of this couple's Jewish Yemenite Henna Ceremony are like something straight out of National Geographic, photos of a time long gone and outfits consigned to attics, museums and those who make their living from posing for tourist photos.

But they're not gone, not buried.

There are people who still own such a thing, wear such a thing.

And I'm jealous.
