ABC WEDNESDAY "H" is for "hands"

You can tell a lot about people by their hands. This hand belongs to my new daughter-in-law's father and I photographed it on the sly during a dinner party shortly after my son's recent wedding.

See other H's ABC WEDNESDAY.

I like seeing the hand with part of the face...it says more than just the hands alone.

Ah le langage des mains! Cette photo ne fait pas exception au fait que j'ai toujours beaucoup aimé observer les mains.

This is a really nice piece of work. The juxtaposition of hand and face, in and out of focus, raises questions but does not give answers.

Wonderful photo!

There is so much feeling and expression in hands. I took a picture of my Aunt's hands at 98 before she passed away. They told the story of her life! I looked for that photo for my post, but didn't find it in time.

I can tell he takes care of is hands by keeping his nails clean and nicely clipped. Great photo!

Wonderful photo! My talented semi-pro photographer dad taught me the importance of hands in a portrait—a lesson you have obviously learned well.
(And I also chose "hands" this time around!)

Hands are so important to me, esp. when I look at men. This mans hands are full of love, comfort and hard-working. I would love to see a series on hands, interesting...love this :)

Interesting to see how many people link up with different groups. Hands is a great subject for this meme's, "H."

Beautifully done, I can tell you care for your extended family. Avery sweet gesture.

I've been thinking about doing ABC Wednesday, is it difficult coming up with the right image each week.
