Sewing Buttons

Recently my partner was commissioned to make a crocheted doll.
On one of the days she was working on the doll I took a few photos of her hands. I wanted to capture some hand-based work and so what she was doing fit that well enough.

This is my submission into the two hundred-and-thirty-seventh Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. The theme for this one is “Bringing Softness“.

All of the soft focus here is unintentional, and sewing is not often a soft process, though it can be, depending on what is being done. Anyway, I think that the unintentional soft focus in parts of this photo makes it fit the challenge.

The host of the Lens-Artists challenges cycles weekly between the following people:

Week 1 – Tina

Week 2 – Patti

Week 3 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 4 – Amy

Week 5 – John Steiner

Week 6 – Sofia Alves

Week 7 – Anne Sandler

Week 8 – Guest host

Donna of Wind Kisses joined the Lens-artists team this year. It will be good to see how we can interpret her challenges.

Bren of Brashley Photography is guest-curating this one. The next one is Leya.

I recommend participating in the challenges. They’re open enough to allow for a fair bit of thinking about approach and closed enough to keep focus on meeting the theme of each one. If you don’t participate, you should still check out what others of the Lens-Artists community are submitting.

I hope you enjoy.

    Excellent. I love hand shots. Things that do things.

    Definitely fits the challenge, SH. And while unintentional. There is also a soft “touch” to her task. And the black and white also makes it soft. Very nice. You always seem to think outside the box. I love that.
