Family time during the holidays
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Family time during the holidays
Family time during the holidays
Posted this last December for the MT "Things we want", where I stated that I wanted: to be able to stop and enjoy some time with family. Was a POTD on BetterPhoto right around Christmas time, for which I was very honored. I would like to use this image as my statement on the Family MT, again this time of year, as we tend to concentrate on "things" during the coming holidays. It's the little things done, a touch, a hug, holding hands to show we care, that make a difference in the lives of those around us.

Great hands shot, Randy. Just had a recent photo club contest on hands - this probably would have won. Love the bokeh of lights in background, too. TED
