I love this Jenni, those little chubby childrens fingers!
This could be read a few ways though, the B&W and the graininess give it a real strong sense of despair to me - could be an advert for the NSPCC (take that as a compliment, the image is very powerful) Did you see it that way?
I have similar one in B&W but it's quite light, I may upload it - it would be interesting to see if others interpret it differently to how I intended it to be.

Interest take on that! I never saw it that way at all but its probably because I know the little boy and his family so all down to associations Smile Its amazing how a photograph can tell so many different stories.

The graininess was unintentional but I think works ok - I cropped in VERY heavily to part of a much bigger shot. I only noticed his hands after I got back home and loved the expressiveness in them. This shot was part of a series of 14 images I put together in a book for the family entitled "Expressions" the other 13 images where all close crops of his face and every single one was different!

Oh dear! this is turning into an essay! I'll stop now Smile

Your expression book sounds like a wonderful idea - I bet the family loved it.
Children are without a doubt my favourite subject to photograph, so natural.
I'll post my pic but don't hold your breath, it might take a while ...2 kids and a full time job, where does the time go!!
