Becky, these are so good. I absolutely love the shots of hands you do. You could do a hand exhibit. Love this.

As cute as the baby pics are, the last hands are just amazingly beautiful too.

Wanda said...

So love the contrast of babies, and older hands. I remember my Aunt Cassie's hands as I held them when she was in the rest home at 98!! Precious hands.

Lauren said...

Again, I love the pictures...and the baby! But my favorite this time is probably a tie between the hands under the lemons (by the way, I love the aging hands theme - it really says something about unity, strength, and perseverance) and the sun shining through the trees.

Mary Lou said...

Spectacular images. Love the hands.
Thanks for visiting me and being a faithful blogging buddy.
Joy to you.

I love the juxtaposition of old/mature and new/young. Oh, and Supermom lives in my little city. I've met her -she's wonderful. :-)

LOVE the double chins on the sweet, sweet baby! You are so good at putting together a series of pictures that "tell" something. I love the hands and then the baby and then the hands...

The young and the old - the contrast you portray in the photos is magnificant. Art creating a painting. Thank you.

Jama said...

Fantastic photos, I enjoyed them.

Ami said...

The last photo actually brought tears to my eyes.

Those are the hands of my great grandfather. He had that shirt, too.

He's been gone a very long time... but he reached out to me this evening.

Beautiful as per usual. Thanks for reminding me of hand shots. I used to do them with my analog camera and they are in my scrapbook albums. Need to get back to that.

Hope you are all well. xxx

PS: I forgot to say the other day, Kaishon's room is fantastic and I love that you surprised him!
