Hand in Black and White

by mamaboast from Carleton Place CA on 13 Nov 2017

I originally took this photo of my hand after I expressed an interest in drawing to my boyfriend. He suggested taking a picture of my hand to practice sketching it. I quickly fell in love with the photo in spite of, or rather because of, the veins and the lines in my skin. I'm not ashamed of aging. I think the image tells a story and elicits the question of where this person has been and what might they have experienced in life?
