Today is a Wednesday and a lot has happened since last month. A simple thing like walking the dog 9 days ago resulted in 2 breaks in a finger (note to self, don’t loop dog lead around fingers/hand, especially when dog lunges) and surgery 5 days ago (3 screws and 2 screws holding the bones now) has put me in a hand splint. I woke during the night (as it becoming the norm with my hand) and looked in on a nesting pair of falcons in Melbourne via a webcam. David and I had a meeting organised for today in Adelaide (nothing to do with my hand) and he is driving me around. Afterwards we stopped in to see family (and I forgot to take a photo!) and then travelled back home in the city traffic.

PhotoHunt theme for the week beginning 6th October 2012 is ‘Hand’
I found this weeks topic a challenge, how to make a hand interesting in a picture. Hmmm.
Even though the party game was hands-free I got a stray hand in the picture (and chopped off people’s heads), I have no idea whose hand it is.
Rubber cleaning gloves make my hand creepy.
I am a geocacher and pickup and re-distribute geocoins. This one is in the shape of the Hand of Fatima. I love the scroll work on the geocoin.
And lastly to finish my theme on hands I am sure that many of us have pictures of our teenage children using their hand with the one fingered salute. The amount of photos I have of my family that have this mannerism in it makes me wonder if it is a family trait.

About the PhotoHunt
The Saturday PhotoHunt is a photography blog “meme” that was started in March 2006
To play, you simply post a photo on your own blog that represents the theme. These are snapshots that you might have taken on a trip, with your family, or in your home. It is important to use only your own photos.
We are not professional photographers . . . although some are. We are bloggers who are having fun with different themes and sharing our photography. You can see more PhotoHunt entries at Whistlestop PhotoHunt and on Facebook
