"Working Hands" from a shoe-repairman I spotted on my way home. To take a snap shot, I asked him to sit in a sidewalk and clasp his hands firmly. After exchanging names and personal stories,I shook his hands with much enthusiasm...and walked away, satisfied with the result of this surprise shoot. :)

Hi Phil...
Nice shot with so nice story...
Nice use light, good composition...

Hello Phil

And a great shot it is. I like you like meeting new people and gain insight, wisdom, and maybe even friendship. I like the sepia tones. but what grabbed me in your image is the last finger at the bottom of the image. It hanging down from the rest of the two hands is imteresting and unique. well done on your composition


Hi Phil,
Original idea with excellent texture and DOF. The image surely transmits your message! The usage of sepia is perfect here.
You have every reason to be satisfied with this work of yours. Congratulations!

What's really nice about this Phil is the super tight crop, getting rid of every other distraction the whole focus is on the hands, which is the only thing that "works" here! It's very rewarding to work with your hands! Marvelous shot, works great in Sepia!
