20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
The hand

This photo is about protection, growing up, parentage and warmth. It is also about the peace and quiet that sleep provides. Above all, it is about two disparate bookends of life one that has seen it all and the other merely on the cusp of it. Each has a hand that juts out - each reaching out either to hold, to play or to protect. The common attribute is love, of course.
