Photo Essay


helping hand

Hands hug and love,create,speak a language with signs and the tattoos they adorn.Hands also that love, can kill.The finger can pull the trigger.This is a small collection of hand photos that I have been working on. Some are smooth as silk and others hard as steel.

    Hands are an invitation, a warning, or a bond. A great series, and you have my vote.

    I like this very much. One thing I've always meant to do in photography is to take pictures of hands. One more thing I've never gotten around to, but it's always in my mind.

    Years ago I was at the 50th anniversary celebration of my parents' wedding. There was a picture there from the wedding day, and my parents were sitting, holding hands. At one point during this event I looked and they were sitting, holding hands exactly as they had done 50 years earlier. I made a little speech about hands and all those hands had done in love over 50 years.

    Maybe this will inspire me to revive my hands project! Thanks.
