This week Nancy has challenged us with the following:
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO (OR TWO OR THREE) THAT FEATURES HANDS.
A few years ago my wife and myself took a number of photos of our hands and arms, protruding through the holes of the hold stones at Tregeseal. We printed them fairly large in monochrome, and friends got them for Christmas. This is one of the series that did not quite make it to the prints.
‘Hole, stone, hand’, Tregaseal, 2014.
For this weeks Fun Foto Challenge Cee gives us the topic of ‘Hands’.
Some of you will notice that doing this sort of thing is a theme for my wife and myself, sometimes it is the only way other than visual means to interface with the sculpture or ancient stone, touching may not be allowed, in this case it was, well there was nothing to say not to. And sometimes the casting of the shadow makes us feel we are part of the object, that we were always waiting to become part of its realised form.
‘Reaching in’, Tremenheere sculpture garden, 2016.
This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Hands, Feet or Paws‘.
‘Shadows’, Men-an-tol, 2016.
And just to complete the set – one I have used before.
‘Mandals’, Portreath, 2015.
