Our Family Reunion: Hands
I love hands. At our large family reunion yesterday, not everyone was there, crowd smaller than usual, so no “group pictures” as there usually is.
At some point, I started focusing on hands–I think the mood struck me watching Aunt Dorothy tackle her watermelon they served her as a prank. She finished it all!
Getting hands still enough was a challenge, but it was great when people really didn’t know they were being photographed and didn’t get all weird.
Some knew I was snapping and would say, “I think I had my eyes closed”. Me: “Oh, that’s okay.” 🙂 or, they’d say, “Oh! I wasn’t smiling.”
I never told them. I just kept going about my business.
Aren’t we like that much of the time? Worried about this and that when God is trying to capture something unrelated.
I love hands. I love everyone’s hands. I just love hands. They are the work of the person, the service, the demonstration, the emphasis. I wish I could walk up to everyone I know and say, “You have nice hands”…because I usually think so. They are so YOU. But, that would probably not be appropriate. Just so you know…
Challenge: post a photo of your hands this week and celebrate the unique gift God made in you.
My camera isn’t the best for detail and getting out blur, but still fun. Was playing with post-production on these until way too late, enjoying some new techniques I’ve wanted to play with lately. (Click to enlarge–the ones I’ve noted “enlarge” are much better larger, but for the sake of time, I uploaded them all the same thumbnails…I also narrated many of them with descriptions, Mom).
