Photo Hunt - Hands


The theme for this week's Photo Hunt is hands. I haven't spent much time dealing with this subject. The photo was taken at the Rodin museum in Paris last year.

I still can't spend much time at the pc at the moment what with my leg being in plaster. I will try to get around to visit as many photohunters as I can.

Morning Jams - hope you are starting to be on the mend. I feel for you!

I have been to that Rodin Museum - it was one of my life's highlights, seeing The Thinker.

candi said...

Great shot! Thanks for stopping by.

Sabine said...

Poor Jams... After I had my left arm in plaster for 6 weeks myself, I went on to have the time of my life (meeting Roger Hodgson in Germany) and didn't have a clue about your suffering... Hope you'll recover fully and soon. And get rid of that extra weight!

Love your hands shot, by the way! :)

Take care, and happy weekend!

Randi said...

I love this shot and the Musée Rodin and I also love
the works of Auguste Rodin.
I hope you are doing well soon!

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone. Sadly I have another 3 weeks of this cast and then at least two weeked before my leg is strong enough to return to work.

Liz said...

Is that sculpture?!! It's amazing.

Nevin said...

Jams, I am amazed at your energy... You are in plasters yet you find the time to update your blog... :)

Love this picture... Real hands would have been even more amazing I think..

Get well very soon!

I sure hope youre healing fast! I feel for you, with your leg in plaster. I had a shoulder surgery 2 years ago, had my arm in a brace for 5 months! Horrible! I love your shot for this weeks them! Relax and take it asy!

RJ Flamingo said...

Wait! What? I know I've been out of the loop for awhile, but what happened? To your leg, I mean.

As always, Jams, a lovely photo - nice choice to show it in black & white.

Trying to reverse a personal trend, I'm "celebrating" over at my place - hope you'll stop by...

I would have never guessed where they were from, great one!

Lovely photo, and I hope the leg will be better soon.

I thought the hands were real. :)

Be patient with the healing. I was bedridden for 2 months when I broken my ankle.

Corey~living and loving said...

Sorry to hear of your leg. I hope it heals well.

love your shot this weekend, though. It is truly breathtaking.

Mudhooks said...

Exquisite!

Sherry said...

That is a wonderful photo. Glad you captured it.
Hope your leg is improving.

Carin said...

Great picture. First I thought they were your hands but then I read they were taken at the Rodin museum in Paris. Uh? Oh well I'll have to find that out.

Sorry to hear you still need the plaster for another 3 weeks. Hope you manage to fill your days. Take care and have a great weekend! If it's like here it will be a rainy one but the forecasts are good for the coming week promissing sun and higher temperatures. Yammy can hardly wait for that to come!

Aileni said...

Rodin would be proud of you - well modelled.

Hope you are noticing improvement.
Have you got that Bronica running yet?

Colin Campbell said...

I was sure that was you. Take care cripple creek.

Hootin' Anni said...

Just take things easy Jams....let yourself heal 100%


I'll give you a hand [applause] for posting such a great photo grouping for the theme this week.

Happy weekend!

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Exquisite shot, really.

As for your leg: I think that all things considered, you should have been allowed to post your leg instead of a hand in this case.

Keep getting better.
