Hands





Detail from a 14 century painting in the Piinacoteca Nazionale Siena


A few weeks down the track and a chance to sit still for a bit, have a look through photos and come up with a theme that fits the moment. It's an absolute luxury to set up camp for a few days and take stock. I don't mind the constant movement - it's exciting, interesting, exhausting at times and  that's what comes with having selected the impulsive travelling option and yet of course it's a temporary state of affairs and will one day be a memory rather than every day reality.... could one take up a nomadic life in this day and age and keep going indefinitely I wonder?

Anyway .... Back to the here and now. I have selected a few photos of hands that are from paintings or real life, taken along the way. Why, you ask? Well in a few days we will have arrived at a sort of destination end-point and this means that I can start being productive, explorative, creative again with my own hands!
