^hesitation had a cool idea for me: that I should use hands in interesting poses for my Femme Elemental series. So when she came to visit me on the weekend, we did some shooting of her own lovely hands. Although I don't think the result fits with my Femme Elemental series, I do believe they deserve their own series. This is the first one. Thanks :hesitation: for the great idea. :)

Hands are so expressive. They communicate so much. Shapes. Directions. Emotions.

edit: I spelled the word "compel" wrong. I'm so fired! :P

very lovely but...I'm sitting here trying to make sense of how she is standing or sitting...and based on the positioning of the hands...it appears impossible to actually do that...so...I am very confused on how this composition is possible...unless you photoshopped the arms together...
Yes...I have sat here and tried to move my arms into a similar position...and...it doesn't work...unless you put one elbow on top of the other...but then it looks contorted and weird. So...um...how the heck did you make this? o.O
