A Photo a Week Challenge: Hands

Nancy’s subject this week is hands. Even more than eyes, hands are the expression of our true self. The way we move them, use them. They show our past and our future. A hand is a microcosm of an individual.


This hand says everything, but softly.

  1. Great use of closeup, Marilyn. Lovely. Thanks for joining the challenge!


  2. I agree that hands do reveal a great deal about the subject. The hands and eyes are very important to me.


  3. When I meet someone for the first time the first thing I notice is their hands


  4. Yeah, the hand can say a lot.., especially if held in position to express power, or displayed with the middle finger indicating a solitary act of self abuse… 🙂


  5. I have heard that capturing hands is one of the most difficult things to do, whether it be photography, painting, sculpting, etc. I think it would be really interesting to do a study of “just” hands, for a big project.
