I have joined Sally at the Studio Sublime in her challenge to document 2013 through a year of photos - one per week for the next fifty two.
Assignment one: self-portrait
From my vantage point - this is what I see. My hands. They are what I use to create, to write, to type, to communicate. My fingers are often stained with paint or ink (witness the top photo above). They look more and more like my mother's hands as the years go by.
I wish I could have figured out an easy way to take a picture of both hands at the same time.
But I need at least one hand to hold the camera and take a photo. Or two, when I'm trying to take a picture of myself in the bathroom mirror. I decided to take the photo above so I wouldn't feel like I'd chickened out by focusing on my hands.
