Hard working hands

by malcolm leader

Image from a local steam fair where the driver was busy talking with his hands behind his back.
Hands are coated with coal dust and oil giving a certain 3D quality. Converted in CS5 to b/w.

Such a fabulous image and a keen eye to seek the 'furthermore'.

The detail tells you a lot about this character.

Should be on a wall.

At first, I wished the watch wasn't part of the photograph, but now I kinda dig the contrast it brings.

Agree about this really working in B&W.
