Hands and expression

Hands

I was editing some portrait work and realised as I was cataloging, how often I photograph hands, just hands, as a main subject as part of a wedding day.

The photo with the mehndi was the grandmothers hands, we did’nt share a language but we both understood what I saw when i showed her the image.  

It never fails to surprise me how much we say without words and that a gesture or action conveys so much, the togetherness,  the support, the fun.
