I have a hard time zooming my eyes in close. So I have been working on it as of late. Here is a quick sample. If you are one of my two readers besides my wife, then maybe make a comment and tell me what you think.
These are the hands of a stone mason in Kashmir. He mostly makes tomb stones. He will on occasion make mortar and pestles.
