Baka Jelka's hands

Yesterday we saw Baka Jelka's (YEL-ka) pigs, who are unknowingly awaiting their sad fate.

Baka Jelka also has chickens and of course fresh eggs, and these are some of them. But the real reason for this photo is her beautiful hands, which tell a tale of their own. Do they remind you of her son's hands? I think so.

Those hands have had a long a strenuous life for sure. The tell of hours of work and aches, but they are very loving and proud hands as well.

Lovely image, Bibi!

Beautiful and sensitive work Bibi, the use of B&W is perfect to frame the composition of her hands!

These hands speak volumes...they are the hands of my grandmother who lived on a farm in northern Minnesota.

Nothing like fresh eggs.

Thank you very much for your expression of concern!

Add this one to your Photos by "Bibi" book. It's superb...the hands, the eggs, the bowl the print on the dress. Wow!

I ate some home hatched eggs in Pozega past summer. The deep orange of the yolks was amazing.

Awesome shot, Bibi! It belongs in a gallery with a big fat price on it. And her hands are indeed very beautiful.
