100 Year-Old Hands

By johnp  
I was invited to photograph a sweet old lady on her 100th birthday. Her hands spoke volumes, so here they are on a black background. Processed in Photoshop and Nik Silver Efex Pro.

Thanks! I felt they said far more than the far-away look on her face.

Yes, I can easily believe that.

We have a shot of my late Father-in-law's hands on the wall: a similar tale, though he died relatively young, and with all his faculties. But hands say a lot about working hard, and surviving.
