PhotoHunt March 28 - 2009 - Hand


THIS WEEKS THEME IS HAND. IT'S WRITTEN THE SAME WAY IN NORWEGIAN.
Go to the ABC Challenge on my post just before this one. And you'll find out why I refere to "written" the same way.

The Hand is probably the Homo Sapiens most important tool beside the species Brain. The Hand does also express a lot of a persons mental state. And activities.
(It's more important for me that you click on each photo to enlarge them as deserved, than commenting)
Here are some HAND e
xamples:

Young and old uses hands to give comfort and trust (Norwegian and Indian)

Hands during a Wedding ceremony - in Punjab, India

Monkeys steal bananas from Homo Sapiens and use their Hands to open and eat.

Henna painting is important descorations for celebrations

Without a Computer or Cellphone, handwriting is still an important means of communication

String instruments are dependant of a feeling
hand


A good cup of Coffee - tastes good and warms your hands

Opening and serving Champagne needs a steady hand (or two)

Playing Air Guitar - no Guitar but Hands

Happy Dancing - Hands up in joy

Ordering at at restaurant - the waiter is explaing - in another Language - hmmm

Grandpa and Grandson - working together

More beautiful Hands here . Do not hesitate, show your hand as well.

Letter writing... what a concept! I remember in high school I had a friend who lived several hours away and we wrote almost every day for two years. It was so much fun getting that letter each day...sometimes two. Now, no one writes letters any more. Great hand pictures. Thanks for stopping by.

It was a great theme but I was too tired after the kids' carnival and I didn't participe this time still. Love all your photos and the first one particulary with the indian. Plus I am in a music mode so I choose those with references to instuments and dances... and of course the bottle of champagne!

almost 3 years ago i lost the use of my left hand and the surgeon would not guarantee i would ever use it properly again. i worked very hard to regain use and had many people praying for my recovery as well. i am thankful every single day i can use my hand again.
