Photo Challenge: i heart faces | hands on

21 Feb

I have a little bit of an obsession with capturing hands and feet in photographs. Our feet are our constant companions, carrying us through all our journeys. Leaving a print to mark where we’ve been. Our hands are weary travel companions, and their image tells the story of touch—the physical, and the emotional.

The theme for this week’s i heart faces photo challenge is hands on. This is my first time entering. Though I had several images I thought might fit the theme, my eye kept coming back to this picture I took last summer during an unbearably long hot spell. The melting popsicle dripping down on her dirt-covered fingers made me wistful for my own childhood, which was not nearly as joyous and free. And I am so grateful that I had my camera around to capture a moment that says childhood and summer.

    Awesome picture. It’s so fun to capture those moments that we will probably miss someday. Even if they are a little sticky and dirty.
