I just returned from a wonderful trip to Italy and France with a group of friends. This poster by Scorpion Dagger for the Musee de Cluny sums up the experience.

In some museums or churches I became overwhelmed with all of the images. I decided to focus on hands. Here are some of those hands.

Solange Pessoa, at the Venice Biennale

A feast!

    What a heartwarming collection of hands, Julie. Such wonderful images to carry me through the day.

  2. I love this collection of “hands”. Thank you, Julie. It gives me a whole new way to focus when taking in an exhibit.

  3. Thank you! Your select photos brought back memories of our trip to Italy 5 years ago. I think I toured every Cathedral and most museums I could find. I was especially drawn to marble figures.

  4. Thank you for sharing these evocative images, as well as the reminder that where we direct our focus is a choice.

  5. Thank you for sharing. I like the idea of focusing on one feature while in a museum to avoid being overwhelmed and coming home with a jumble of unrelated images.

  6. It’s very powerful to see these photos, to focus on just the hands. Thank you for sharing!

  7. I love what John Singer Sargent said “a portrait is a picture with something wrong with the hands”
