Sorry for the lack of visits yesterday but work dragged me in a bit early, so hopefully I'll get round people today

Canon EOS 500D 1/3200 second F/6.3 ISO 100 55 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

I can definitely relate to work being a drag and also causiong emotional irritation becasue we can't visit... This is a great look at a craft that, to me, is anything but easy to do :-) Well done sir - AS we might say over this way with regard to the overload at work: "Hang in there!"

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

You've captured two very sensitive hands, feeling every turn of the clay as they work.

Elaine Hancock from Rockville, United States

I have always thought that pictures of hands at work made such powerful images. I really like this. I love the POV and the focus on the hands.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

A nice shot of those practiced hands.

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

As a former high school art teacher, I can tell you that it is not as easy as a good potter makes it look.

7 Aug 2013 10:23pm

Abena from Illinois, United States

Now that's an interesting one! I've tried my hand at that, not the easiest thing, I hope that turned out good!

Pottery is so fascinating to watch. I love ceramics. If I had a pottery wheel I would lose my mind. I'd have to add on to the house. ;)

Shiva from Berwick, Canada

I must have missed this one - and it is great - perfect details - the hands are in the right position - how nice to see a plate or bowl made stilll by hand and not spit out by a machine by the hundreds.
Thanks for sharing - kindest regards Monika
