Working hands

For some reason I like to photograph hands at work. Maybe it's because I enjoy working with my hands and am interested in what others are doing - making objects, playing instruments, exploring the world around us. Here's a series of photographs of hands.  The image above is of Colm Delaney's hands while he's playing concertina.
