Taken as part of the Photo101 challenge – today’s theme ‘Connection’
These are some hand prints my husband, myself and my twin daughters did nearly fourteen years ago. We had great, messy fun producing them, and at the time, made a conscious decision that we should each make our hands into a different pattern, as well as using a different colour. Thus, they are different and yet the same – much like us as individuals.They have been gracing my walls ever since.
Underneath I have pinned the scroll of my extended family tree which goes back over 200 years. There are many that are long since dead, and even some more recent relatives that I have never known. Nevertheless, we are still connected by a blood line, and keeping a record of their names means that their connection to us will continue to be remembered by future generations.
What an interesting take on the topic. Love the combo of painted hands and linear family tree. (Those orange hands are my favorite as far as composition – nice contrast to the hands working in the same direction)
Thank you. They are my daughter Helen’s hands. She is a doctor now so theyre being put to good use!
Interesting. Mine’s a surgeon. Firmly believe docs are born to be docs and wouldn’t be happier doing anything else.
Congrats, Mom – good job.
Thank you, you too! Mine are twins and both docs. Im very proud, but worry that they have sich horrendous shifts and such responsibility – theyre still my babies! 😊
I know how brutal it is. They need their mom and a chance to decompress once in a while. Cheers to all!
This very personal illustration of connection is very touching. Thanks for sharing !
You’re welcome! Im glad you liked it. 😊
