Weekly Photo Challenge: Hands


Hands are so expressive, they can tell the story of a person in their lines and creases, their spots and shading, and yet we use them so much in our everyday lives, that we barely appreciate their presence. I like this photo, not only because of it’s rich colour and interesting perspective, but because of the role of the hands. When I took this photo, I wasn’t intending to capture the hands, looking more at the guitar, but indirectly, the hands are the focus of the picture. They take a backing role, yet without them the picture might be incomplete. They are necessary, but almost invisible because of their normality, and I think this photo really emphasises that.
