The Love Of A Man

<span class=

Here, a glimpse into heart of husband. A picture capturing the love of a man.

Masculine, hard worker. Providing for his family in a job he cant stand.

Why does he do this?

Time. It provides him time. At home with us.

My man is computer geek at heart. He would prefer a job that used more brain work yet puts up with blue collar.

For us.

He had the job of his dreams. Once

Manager of stores. Hiring. Firing. Creatively solving problems.
He loved it. He was rarely home.

This sacrifice is one of the reason that I love him.

So, his hands look like this.

His hands tell a story
The story of sacrifice.

The story of The Love Of A Man.

  1. Love the picture of your husband's hands. They tell his story, as hands always do. For me, hands are our tickets to anywhere...

  2. This reminds me of the photo I have of my own dad's hands. A mechanic, he works so hard and his hands show it. They tell a story, just like this photo does. What a good man to sacrifice for his family...

  8. I know many who are drawn to feet ... photographing them ... solitary and couplet-ed.

    It is the hand that I am always drawn to. The poems they make in the air. The stories about everything they touch and stir the world by.

    You speak of the love of your man beautifully.
