Which came first? The chicken, the egg, or the farmer’s dirty hands.
This is the second photo I made of a farmer’s hands, dirty hands, hands with dirt under the nails, caked into the ridges and creases of a calloused hand.
Working hands set against a background of their clothes. The clothes they wore to market still smelling of fresh earth and barn floor and leather straps and manure.
Putting those impressions in a single frame became a challenge I needed. For the full summer every Wednesday at the market I made photos of the farmer’s hands, or the bakers, or beekeepers, or the gardener.
Not all were as good at this photo. The good part was the challenge, successful or not.

This is an Amazon link where I make a few pennies to help pay for my life. Today’s link is Bag Balm Skin Care Cream so you can have as smooth as the udders on a farmer’s milk cow. Did you know there is a Bag Balm Store on Amazon?
Almost everything I shoot goes through Luminar Neo. Even after I’ve made the first edit of my raw file in Adobe Camera Raw. I’ve built my own set of Luminar presets for the places and things I normally shoot and for different lighting conditions at those places. Then it’s easy to adjust the results for fine-tuning each photo. This is an affiliate link so I might make a little something from sale. Download it for the trial period.
