Hands of Time

dsc_1761Taken at one of last week’s photo shoots.

“There is always a lot to be thankful for, if you take the time to look. For example, I’m sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don’t hurt.” ~Author Unknown

So many things I could write about but I’m so busy. A few things I’m hoping to find time to write about are copyright (again), printing your personal photos & displaying them (all those photos you have on disc, or worse — on hard drive), and important considerations in using online photo sharing sites such as Flickr (especially with the concerns relating to posting photos of children). Are any of these topics of interest or concern to you?

Sounds like very interesting topics to me, looking forward to reading what you have to share with us.

Copyright is something I want to learn more about.

I love this photo!

I would be interested to hear what you have to say about posting pics of children as I have a toddler.

that’s a good observation. i recall as a young child being afraid of wrinkles i saw on the hands of my grandmothers’. hadn’t thought about it for years, but matthew mentioned he doesn’t like wrinkles. he seems scared of them. kinda strange and here i am admitting the oddity of us both in front of the entire world:-) it’s a very nice capture. now, it feels reassuring to see hands like those.

Super shot of the expressiveness of hands. I did a series of hand shots a few years ago and found it to be enormously interesting.

Copyright not so much, but I would be interested in a discussion of the other topics. I’ve been wanting to write something about posting children’s photos for quite a while. Long term archiving of photos would be another good topic, especially since discs aren’t permanent or necessarily reliable – files can become corrupt, discs can get scratched or break down with time.

I love this photo of the hands. I think hands can tell a story. Mine would tell you I’ve been pulling weeds and raking. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Interesting topics of thought and consideration. Yesterday’s Shutter Sisters post sure did elicit a lot of controversy and conversation. The topic of posting pix of children (or even adults) online is an interesting one…and how to protect that ‘privacy’.
Love the detail of the aging hands. Something magical about the stories hands tell!!!

The hands tell a fascinating story of one’s life. Excellent framing and lovely tones.

This image is so beautiful, Diane.

Yes, I am interested in those topics. It seems like anytime I start thinking how silly it is that I don’t post full face photos of my children, I read something on the internet that makes me glad I don’t. After reading the Shutter Sisters post yesterday I went and removed one photo from my flickr account and un-tagged another. I do sometimes post photos taken of my kids when they were very little, but I wonder about that, too.

These hand should tell a lot – Beautiful photograph
