Photo Hunt #112; A Part of Myself

Once again a very difficult subject.

So many parts, so few photos. I rarely take images of myself.

So this week, after much reflection and cogitation, I chose a very important part of myself.

Without this part I would be unable to do many of the things which makes me human.

My opposable thumb. Grasping at the intangible.

  30. It is very interesting to see who posts a photo of themselves in the whole, so to speak, and who and how others of us get around doing that creatively.

  35. Rotate the image 90 degrees clockwise and it looks like the south side of a tail-less horny rhinoceros facing north that’s missing one important part of its anatomy. I’m outta here.
