I ♥ faces: Hands on Fun!

I love I heart faces. I was introduced to this blog through my friend's blog (which is now no in use - big tear and huge pout), and I've become addicted. All my life I've wanted to be a photographer, to have that eye that catches the beautiful images and angles that always exist but are easily overlooked. I don't have that eye naturally, but I've been trying to learn and develop it.

I have always wanted to enter one of their weekly contest, but never have because I KNOW nothing I have would come close to the other photographers. BUT, I thought a long time ago that if they had a week that featured pictures of the hands, I would enter. Because I LOVE this photo.

Not because it is particularly fantastic (although I think my Little Man's little hand is adorable), but because of the moment it caught. The babies were just learning that the spaces in between the slats of their cribs and play yards were open and that things could be put through. On this particular day I looked over just in time to see little fingers peek out, and then a hand emerge, and then see him wiggle his fingers and twist his hand as he explored this open space. He was in awe, and I was happy that I had my camera nearby!

Head on over to I heart faces to see more (and more incredible) photos of hands!
