  1. what a contrast. Hands will never lies, the always show the truth of life, tell a story. Hands are a special part of a human, one of my most prefered motives. Fine Joshi, very very fine :D. Like this one so much.

  2. The details on his skin are wonderful and the gesture so delicate, I love the romantism of this apparently simple & totally efficient moving close-up, Joshi*

  3. Preciosa definicion la lograda en esta fotografia llena de sentimientos, las texturas de su mano son espectaculares.
    Una fotografia llena de sentimientos, saludos.

  4. What a great telling image! Some images are possible to dwell into, to imagine a life, a history – from just a small part. Like this one – no face, no eye contact, and still you can imagine it all…
    Lovely!! Very nice work!

  5. Reminded of Tagore’s lines

    “Thy infinite gifts come to me only on these very small hands of mine.
    Ages pass, and still thou pourest, and still there is room to fill.”

    :-) Quite a wonder and so strangely delicate!

  6. I really like this. Hands that have so much to tell. Hands that are used to hard work struggle, yet they can be gentle and caring. The Rose is not just held it’s being care for, even if it has to be let go.
    Yes to contrast of colour is great, but the story is compelling.
