Travel Photo Thursday: Working Hands

In looking back through my pictures, I find that I am fascinated by the people who make things. I often snap the hands of craftsmen and women–no matter what their craft may be. Here are three up close and personal from Bayeux France, Chattanooga Tennessee, and Mansfield Ohio.
