Hands and a lens

I am fascinated by the series of images by Alfred Stieglitz with hands (Google images search on Alfred Stieglitz and hands can get you the idea, too). These are Georgia O’Keeffe hands, very dramatically posed, sometimes using objects as propos or just by themselves. I was thinking about taking a photograph like that. Well, when I was looking around the house for the appropriate size prop, I got engaged my husband into the project. Which was good, I thought about using my hands rather then his, anyway. But the final image turned into nothing like Stieglitz, with no drama, more techy, I would say. But an interesting image, nevertheless.
