Focus on Life • Week 18

This week's topic for the Focus on Life photo challenge is "In Your (Their) Hands"....

Back in the beginning of the year, for another topic, I realized I was quite obsessed with taking photos of footprints in the snow....well, as it turns out, I am also obsessed with taking close-ups of people doing things with their hands!! Must be the appealing tactile-ness of all the things I see in my work, day to day.  How someone is working hard with their hands to make the final product.  I simply couldn't pick just one for this week. From chefs hand-shelling fava beans, to bricklayers adding finishes to the new restaurant, to staff at the farm seeding the crops one seed at a time...I take a LOT of pictures of hands...

  1. I'm totally not comfortable taking pictures of people at all, even if it's just their hands. Landscapes are so much easier for me!
