Another picture from the ancient city of Aphrodisias.
A marble "hand" of an ancient sculpture, in the hands of a worker of the excavation team.
The contrast of the finely polished marble and the roughness of the workers hand impressed me to make this picture.

Great idea for a photo. I like a contrast between a white marble hand and tanned hands of an old men.

Çok güzel bir kompozisyon olmuş, elinize sağlık. Renkler ve ışığın başarılı kullanımı, aradaki kontrastı çok belirgin kılmış.

After several months now, I have an occasion to find out this picture again in TE.. When I saw it for the first time, it made a big impression on me but I was in a hurry so didn't make any note what I regret afterwards..
But.. what I did then was to copy the picture for myself, having after that a serious temptation to use that astonishing and symbolic detail as a unusual illustration of Eastern greetings for my friends (marble hand holdes sth what resembles an.. egg).
So.. Now I use an occasion to do what I miss then - saying that the idea of your pics is amazing, everything is perfect.
As you can see, it stayed for a long in my memory!
Thank you for sharing!
