Award Shortlist   

VIETNAM #180

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
I was fascinated by the hands of the 111 years Chau Ma hill tribe woman (see previous uploads for more info).

When I held her hands to say goodbye, I was surprised to notice how soft they were. I expected a rough leather type of feel.






A huge THANK YOU to Jennnnnn (taggart) for her User Award for yesterday's photo.

A special Thank you to Nathan (NDODS), Danny Brannigan (danbran), NaturesHaven, Jeff Silvers (cats_123), Richard Shuttleworth (DicksPics), Joline Frazier (Joline) and peter jaktlund (jaktis) for their UAs on this image.

I知 really chuffed by the response on this photo.
