The 52-week photography project: hands

The subject for week 22 of the 52-week photography project is hands.

Hands are a marvel. We use our hands to create and to nurture.
We form clay with our hands. We draw and we paint and we knit and crochet, using our hands.
We dig weeds from the ground and plant flowers. We prepare food with our hands. We use our hands to nourish ourselves and others.
We connect to one another with hugs and handshakes.
We communicate with gestures and, if we know it, with sign language.


Our hands are large and small, old and young, brown, black, tan, beige, and porcelain.
They are wondrous works of beauty.
Here are my images of hands.


Next week: Week number 23 of the 52 week photography project. Come back and take a look at next week's images.

I gotta give you a hand for this post. :-)
