The street photography assignment for this week on my Facebook fan page was “Hands“. I always stress the importance of capturing hands in street photography – because so much of our non-verbal communication comes from our hands. In this post are some of my favorites that were uploaded from the Facebook community.

Next week’s theme is going to be: “Food” – inspired by Gaston Trussi, one the attendees in my past street photography workshop in Sydney. I think that what makes “food” a great theme is that without it – we would literally be dead. It also brings friends, families, and acquaintances together – and has strong roots to the society we live in.

How to enter: Next week, go out and shoot what you perceive to be “Food” – and upload your best (1) shot to my Facebook fan page by Thursday midnight. Why Facebook? It makes it easier to organize the entries and sort through them!
