I Heart Faces Challenge - Hands On

I was looking at some of the entries and was just overwhelmed with how beautiful hands really are. I have this thing for feet, especially babies feet. I can take pictures of feet all day. I never gave much thought to hands, but after today I definitely will be paying more attention.

I've showed this photo that I took a couple of weeks ago to my regular blog readers, but I couldn't get pass using this one in this weeks challenge.

This was take mere minutes after my niece, Sofia, was born. As you can see in the picture, her daddy is cutting her umbilical cord with one hand and Sofia has a grip on her daddy's other hand. Beautiful. This was one of those shots that I didn't even know I had until I went through the photos later that night. Makes you want to smile or cry or do both.

Join in and share your "Hands On" Photos!
