I have been shooting photos for 50 years and find it as challenging now as when I first began as a kid. Thanks for stopping by… I do assignment work (writing and photography) or would love a well paying, full time, permanent gig!

    Your hands are graceful, Allan, and in this photo, they are getle, at rest. The light is beautiful, as always. Beautiful photo.

  • Thanks rd… they’ve had their less-than-graceful moments but you hit spot-on what I was shooting for.

    This is so beautiful Allan! Hands can be so expressive and I see so much in this shot. Beautifully done with the composition and magical light :)

  • Hi Shelly… I agree, hands are intriguing, they do so much for us. And the light… I know, and it’s… just here! I only take advantage of it – gladly too!
