Together

Togetherness

Two hands clasped together.  Waiting.  Quietly watching the world go past from the window of a tram.  Nails clipped to a millimetre of their bed. Coats out.  The rain falls.  Waiting.  There's a calmness and stillness to this photo that draws me in.  Makes me feel like I'm part of it.  A snap-shot in time. 

But I was there, wasn't I? 

Camera down, join the scene.  Take one of those hands in your own.  Together. Waiting.

My response to this week's prompt from "You Capture" - for more head over here.

Really lovely and intimate. It's nice how the blog post starts with the question of whether this is a stranger, and then suddenly you enter the scene with your sweetheart.
