I love the focus on those age worn hands holding the fishing net smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Cherry. Those hands have touched a LOT of nets, I'm sure!

Interesting close up...greast shot of the hands
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Bonnie. I usually go for the "forest" but sometimes I do hone in on the trees. smile
Lovely detail in this Ginnie! And you give a certain softness to his weathered hands!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Elizabeth. At my age I take special notice of hands these days. HA!

Hands that know what they do. (and very well taken care off) Wonderful details and close-up.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, MLMA. Those hands can surely tell a thousand stories!

Wonderful details Ginnie! He surely knows what he is doing.

A delicate and time consuming activity I'll guess Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: One of those jobs, Chris, that never ends...indeed.
A complimentary picture to Astrid's and very pleasing it is too
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. I love when we can be different witnesses to the same thing. smile
Working hands if ever I've seen them Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeedy, Chad!

A complete nightmare, I should think, trying to soirt this out. I have enough trouble with the card for my headphones sad
Ginnie Hart: HA! I imagine they get the hang of it after awhile?! smile
joli gros plan sur ces belles mains!! amitiés
I have an elderly friend who repairs nets from all over the place. It is a dying art and no one is interested in learning from him. love your shot.

The net is intended for bigger catch than Na's Dad's casting nets, Ginnie.

Really like the close-up of the fisherman's hands.
What a wonderful picture, that old ladies hands must have dealt with acres of this netting over the years.
Gosh...just imagine all the work those hands have done! Wonderful detail!

Excellent close-up of these guys doing their work.
Nice shot, Ginnie.
I went to A's place and discovered it was actually an old man?! Not a babushka in a headscarf?
Wonderful hands, still working...
Terrific shot of those hard working hands.
