November photo blogging challenge ... People ...

argggg ... PJ's challenge for November left me thinking of hundreds of options ... but i choose something a little different ... the challenge is people ... but what makes people???  we are all just bits and parts glommed on to a soul ... so, i went with one of the bits ... the hands ... after all, the hands carry out so many of the actions that make us people who we are ... they love, they play, cook, build, type ...

So enjoy, my weird little interpretation of the challenge of photographing people ...






ps, these shots were not posed or set up ... just quick snaps of life as it happened...
thanks so much for stopping by to visit!

and make sure you take some time to check out some stellar photography over at PJ's blog a'lil hoohaa ... check out the links of those joining in ... some great shots to see!

First of all, I have to say it looks like someone had a lot of fun with paint. : ) I absolutely love your interpretation of the prompt. Very creative take. You got some great shots.

Did you win the card game?

I'm not sure how to explain how I felt when I saw this without sounding goofy. My heart kind of caught in my throat...! I looked at the shots first, then went back and read what they were. Then I studied each one... and that is when they just caught my breath. I think this is an absolutely amazing take on the subject... absolutely amazing.

What a great interpretation of this month's theme. By far, my favorite is the hands shuffling the cards.

Great idea! There is something special about hand shots. I love the card shuffling shot, especially.

Fabulous interpretation of this month's theme. I am convinced that the hands convey a lot about someone's life and life experiences. I, too, want to know who won the card game!

Greta take on the theme. What says people more than hands with opposable thumbs? :)

Brilliant interpretation!

To all those that asked ... I actually won the game ... i was given a 20 point hand in my first crib ... my poor Dad never caught up ... which is rare ...

Love, love, LOVE this interpretation. The best part of this challenge is to see what others come up with and how they view the theme. I really love the top photo and the one of the person shuffling cards. Really nice work! Thanks for joining up with us and hope to see you each month! :)
