PhotoHunt--Theme: Hands


Oh, I can't do this. I don't have any photos of hands and I don't have time to go find some interesting hands to take. What can I do with hands? This theme not for me? Think again.




So I went looking through my files for hands. I cropped them out of a bunch of photos. I was amazed at how many hands and how expressive they were.


Young hands (the first picture VERY young hands) to old hands--all these hands are family hands. Husband, children, grandchildren.



Eensy weensy spider hands.






There's a foot down there hands.
Bait the hook Grandpa hands.

Help me please hands.

Taking on a big job hands.

Tying hands.


Big hands.










Little hands.
And all the hands brought me memories and sweet thoughts of all the little ones and big ones in my life.

All because of a theme of hands.

Very well done! Hands are wonderful subjects and we ignore them most of the time. No quilting hands?

Well founded!

Fantastic! I love all of the photos you've shared this week. I, too, thought it would be a difficult one, but there were more photos available than I imagined.
Is there anything more precious than a child's tender hands?

Hi Katney, Nice to meet you. Thanks for coming by and leaving a comment. I have been looking at your blogs with interest. The country there is so arid compared with our green.
Your hands are delightful....mine just showed the size of an avocado!
