Beautiful series I shall I look back on these pictures when I immersive myself back into university life in London. It’s a detached and busy place so these pictures will comfort me 🙂
Beautiful work. You capture that essence that we humans are made in the likeness of a great loving Creator.

This makes me quite sad, actually. When the days of Covid-19 are behind us, will the beauty of hand-holding, helping a stranger to stand, or carrying someone’s groceries for them – will these beautiful connections return to society? I hope so. Because “hand-in-hand” is needed in this world. I need it.
I am filled with hope by the simple joy and the poetry of these images. Thank you.
Great and simple commentary on what is needed. Happy New Year Steve – Kia kaha – stay strong

Hand in Hand … “Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That’s why it’s a comfort to go hand in hand.” – Emily Kimbrough.
What a beautiful post to contemplate going into 2021 after a year of tough learning. Hold your mates hand every day.
Exactly. Thank you, Sheila
The human need to touch and be touched. Happy New Year 2021!
Yes, and Amen!
the hands we hold are the confidences we have
Your subject matter is always well chosen and the photos never disappoint. But it is the eyes, especially the children’s eyes you capture, that intrigue me the most. The light from within that burns in all of us shines through so brightly in your photos, each through the lens of the individual’s life and circumstances.
Oh, Steve, these are so lovely. Seeing your photos always make my day, but the theme of holding a hand is really wonderful, especially in a time of distancing. Happy and Healthy New Year to you.
Each and every photo is a story itself… Great 🙌🙌♥️
An assurance of love and being present to another . Thank you so much Steve
in a period of seclusion like this, the photos of people holding hands are a good wish for a return to normalcy
My sentiments, exactly. Agreed!
I’m never disappointed! Beautiful.
Pure love! you’re a great photographer, congrats!!!
