Weekly Photo Challenge: Hands

This week’s Photo Challenge from WordPress is hands – a photo where hands are part of the composition or theme of the picture.  So…  I got thinking a little about what hands signify, and how we use them.  Folded hands can signify prayer and raised fists, defiance. We use our hands…

to signify marital status, and participate in traditions…

to perform our work and create our crafts…

to direct or communicate….

                     We raise our hands in acknowledgement or celebration (or to spell YMCA!)

…and sometimes just to connect.

And just when I was getting a little too contemplative about this challenge…

I found….

                                                                            A photo of a hand of bananas!
