Day 20/365: Sketching Hands



Today's my mom's 54th birthday! She hates pictures of herself but loves her hands/fingernails. So I wanted a picture of her today and I knew she would just frown up at me in sigh "Samantha" in a way that only she can. Just to prove how much I know her, I asked her to pose for a picture and in true form, she responded exactly as I said she would. So I asked for just the hands and she agreed. Yep, I reeled her in!. I then decided add my favorite sketch of hers.  After about five or six pictures and an "Are you through yet?" which I knew really meant, "If you're not through, I don't care and I'm going to bed anyway", this is what I ended up with.  Thanks Ma for being a good sport and you rock in my book. Now about that nursing home...

What I love about this photograph: Knowing that when she's in the nursing home and I'm too busy to visit, I can just look at this picture :)

Technical Stuff: Nikon D40; 55.0mm; 1/60s; f/5.6; ISO 400
