Shadow Shot Sunday #10


Hands are my favorite part of the human body. Whether the subject before me is male of female makes no difference, I always look at their hands. I don't care if the fingers are long or short, have good nails or bad, I just like hands. The small hands which belong to my son are naturally my very favorite of all. I love when he holds up a finger describing some new owie through crocodile tears, wanting a kiss to make it all better. Sometimes I mess it up. Sometimes he tells me that I kissed the wrong spot. I do my very best to suppress the giggle that so wants to come out! Instead, I'll ask him to point out his injury to me once more. He'll pause a moment and examine his fingers, choose a new spot and say, "Here, Momma." How simple it is to make things all better in Hugo Land.

How blissful to be in Hugo Land. I really miss kissing little fingers all better, but now I can occasionally do that with my grandchildren.

Lovely! I adore hands too; bad hands on a man turn me off. Funny. Is it genetic??

What a beautiful photo Alissa! I love that it's in black & white. Just gorgeous! Cute story about little Hugo. I don't have children, but sometimes when my dog receives an ant bite on her paw she expects me to kiss it better. As much as I love her, I don't oblige. I give her a little treat instead to placate her. Thankfully that strategy works :D

What a wonderful photo this is! I love hands too. I did a blog post on them quite a while back, with photos. This is a great SSS.

I too love hands, especially large male hands full of character and weathered work scars. You can feel the strengh in these hands by their rugged appearance.

But lil' Hugo's man-to-be hannies are adorable and oh so kissable, where ever the booboo is!

Gorgeous photo and lovely, tender post. I enjoyed scrolling down the page. Hugo looks to be pure joy. Hugo Land seems to be a wonderful and magical place. Nice to remember that some people (children) actually get joy out of snow. Still, I'm glad it's finally starting to melt here where I live.

That shot is just a precious, beautiful shot!!

"Wow! What a gorgeous dress! Right up my alley. Wherever did you find it, or did you make it? Feel like making another one?"
I wish I had the sewing skills to make that dress. I found it at an estate sale. Sold in one of my shops sometime fairly recently as I recall. Sorry...I'd make you one if I thought I could.

This is one of the nicest photos I've seen in a long time. Your blog is really lovely, especially the way you're chronicling your son's adventures. Thank you for stopping by my blog today.

B/W makes for some of the best shadows, doesn't it? In color we'd have probably not even paid any attention to the shadows, but this just brings them right out! Nice!

Alissa said...

Millie Price said...
