Hands


Denied a useful touch
paper-thin and brittle,
coffee-splotched hands
hesitate to reach out.

Beautiful photographs. Hands make such an interesting alternative to facial portraits, they tell a story all of their own.

What incredibly touching photos (no pun intended!). Hands tell a multitude of stories about who people really are.

Nice use of lighting in these shots. It shows the details in the hands perfectly

You've seen these hands do so many things. You convey that exquisitely in the stillness and light of these photographs.
