I recognised this immediately Bill! A fine close up from this wonderful statue.

It almost looks like a stone carving Bill. Sometimes the part is better than the whole as you have demonstrated here.

The hand is the star of the image despite despite not being the point of focus, it is for the eye of the viewer. We as humans are very touchy people, always wanting to run our fingers over things and use a sense we are rarely really aware of. Some people shy away from the touch of another's hand and others stretch out to meet the contact.
The hand here is in support, that final support on the way to the end of the journey of life. A beautiful and telling selection from a larger work Bill, you do pick well.

I admit to googling, because I couldn't figure out the statue's stance, I do now, and feel the better for the viewing.

Super composition. I've read Dougie's comment above and to some extent agree. However I do find that because the face is so dark it recedes into the b/g so that we hardly notice it even though it constitutes a huge part of the picture. I wonder if that was your intention. It's an intriguing bit of focussing and mono work.

Fenwick Lawson is another guy that is new to me Bill.
Any relation to the telly cook Nigella Lawson by any chance ?
I could watch her hands in a bowl of flour all day long !!

Following Dougie's comment, I'll google this later (just off out). Excellent partial capture, though Bill.

Bit like yesterday: I'm looking at this and thinking, what else can I see? No matter: what I can see is a superb mono, with perfect light and shadow in all the right places.

Thanks for your kind comments today (and every day, come to that).

Kind regards.

I see two subjects here, the head and the hand. Both so close to each other yet separated by a sideways 'S' shaped divider.
Excellent piece of work.
