As he read the newspaper in his hands, his hands were in the newspaper, and he read his hands. And he read with his hands. And his hand saw me, watching him.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Definitely a little bit of a head-scratcher here but think I get it. I think most people missed the hand-shaped cutouts in the newspaper; as a Canuck I'd almost think they were partial maple leaves :-)

Do like the environment and sense of being in the moment here. The staircase leading up to the door definitely makes for a nice flow up to and past the guy reading the paper. I almost didn't recognize it as one of yours without the Lensbaby! The back top of the newspaper is a little hot but does offset the handprints.

Overall an unusual and interesting shot, which is why it scored so poorly...but maybe it'll get a Posty...;-)

Feel free to PM me,

Shoot. I came back to see what this meant. I figured there was some deeper meaning. And I still don't get it. Back to the Sesame Street books for me!

Not sure I get this shot. I have looked at it time and time and time again. Why am I not understanding?
I like the black and white and the uniqueness to the shot.
Looking forward to seeing the description after the challenge ends.

I'm afraid I need a translation ...

A little esoteric for me. I looked up some things in “The Joy of Signing” and still can’t figure it out.

I like the image, but I'm not seeing the relevance.
