I love Births most of all. I’ve learned that they’re the Big Pay Off. It’s easy for everyone to see the significance of a Death; Births are more of a gamble…an act of faith…a ray of Hope… (I’ve “cleaned up” unnecessary detail for modesty’s sake…I just thought I’d say that, since I normally don’t alter images once they’ve been shot.) I love this shot. The overexposed newborn hand is a symbol of Life itself…almost as good as Michaelangelo’s central panel in the Sistine chapel ….Wow.
