It has been said that "a picture is worth a thousands words." I believe that a picture that captures a moment is worth so much more. There are things in life that can't be replaced or relived, but a photograph can bring back those feelings in a rush. To me photography is more than just angles and lenses, its about the little things that become unforgettable.

Week 10–Hands


I borrowed Mules hands for this one. I couldn’t figure out a way to use my own with out a tripod.

hands 009-3

I draped black fabric over part of his arms and knees so there was a solid background. Grabbed a desk lamp to avoid shadows and allow for some warmth in the lighting.

hands 009-4

Edit Number 1. Made it black and white and did some cropping, but that’s about it.

hands 009-5

Edit Number 2. Changed it to Sepia tones, added some softening to draw the eye in and cropped the edges.

Personally I love the second one and plan on blowing this up and framing it for the living room. Which one do you prefer?


  1. I think they turned out great and couldn't choose which I liked better. I think I would pick whichever one goes with your decor better. Great photo.

  2. These turned out awesome... I think they will look so nice blown up and framed.

  3. I love ANYTHING that uses scrabble letters!! Great picture. I agree with Jeanna, and think you should frame this one. Thanks for linking up!

  4. One of my favorites! The 2nd will look beautiful blown up and framed.
