Might just be enough for a dream.

Yes. Thoughtful mean to measure time and life. May both treat him kind.

Just amazing picture. Expressive hands.

sorry brother, no one can spare a dime these days...

Stickup Artist said...

What a fascinating choice to shoot only the hands and pennies and not the face. Makes me think of depression era photography. A powerful commentary using these spare means so effectively.

Petrea Burchard said...

I agree with Stickup Artist about the evocation of the depression era. All that, with hands and pennies.

I'm with Stickup and Petrea. I'll add that his coat seems just right as well. And, much as I love the faces you give us, this is a nice change and goes in a similar direction thematically.

What an evocative photo which cannot but make one think about the hands, the person, the situation. What a touching photo, a keeper!
