Fisherman's hands

Fisherman's hands

I was down at the fish quay recently working on finding some detail shots with a nautical theme. Unsurprisingly I came across a fisherman, so I asked him if I could take some photos of his hands to go alongside some of the other pictures that I have of working people's hands. His hands were just great, full of character and details showing how hard they had and still do work. When I shook his hand to introduce myself I could feel little softness in his skin, it was almost like he was wearing gloves his hands were so hardened.
