Hands is the challenge set by Karen this week and I left it until the last minute to try and capture my photos. So much so that the ideas I had did not come to fruition plus my subjects were not as willing as with the last challenge.......they were too busy watching out for their cousins arriving.
The idea I wanted was to keep the hand as the main focus with a deep depth of field so the body would be blurred. To some extent this is what happened only the hand is not as sharp as I would have liked.

Do you know that holding your arm/hand out in front of you is really really tiring!!
So onto number two subject who was a little more willing!

Then back to number one subject who decided he may be able to hold out two hands for me after all.

I like the composition on this photo and the bokeh effect......still the ((((now dirty)))) hands are not as sharp as I would have liked.
The next photo is probably my favourite. I like how he's holding his rugby ball.
Needless to say they were relieved when the family started to arrive for Jack's and my niece's birthday celebrations.
Good company and the sun was shining
(for a short while)
a perfect Sunday!
