Saturday Photo Hunt --- Wrinkled





WRINKLED

Now you did not seriously think I would post a photo of my wrinkled face, did you?


When I was twenty I had the hands of a forty year old. At forty my hands looked sixty but now I am 70 plus I have grown into my hands. Still wrinkled and very freckled but age appropriate now.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE

I must say that your hands look better than mine do at 50. I tried shooting the wrinkles around my eyes but it didn't work so I went in another direction. Happy weekend.

Leslie said...

Great photo, and you have a terrific weekend! :)

Maddy said...

Mine are 48, you're doing great dear. [you must be a lefty!]
Best wishes

Hey I'm 57 and your hands are less wrinkled than mine. Nice. I need one of those Rx rings for my hubby. Are you a pharmacist?

Hi jmb --

Nice looking hands. BTW, didn't realize you were in your 70s! I know you have managed to have some very interesting experiences and such into your life but just figured you did all that in double quick time! ;b

Rositta said...

Nothing wrong with well used hands, at least you've done stuff with them...ciao

leslie said...

All I noticed was your GORGEOUS finger nails! Oh what I wouldn't give for those! My mother had beautiful nails but I didn't inherit them. My second daughter did, though.

Randi said...

I see beautiful nails!
I wish my hands looks like yours when I reach your age.
Happy weekend.

Hahhahaa...I didn't have the guts to pose my face too :P

sho said...

that was a very poignant commentary. Incidentally, I have been teaching my kids on the theme of the elderly and society. You sound like one who's aged with grace and beauty. Thanks for sharing that honesty.

Barbara H. said...

My hands have looked older than the rest of me for many years, too.

Gbex and Ellen said...

Your hand looks better than mine jmb! Greast take on this week's theme. Happy weekend

Dragonstar said...

Now I do like that! I see you can still wear your rings - mine have to be so big to go over my knuckles that they spin on my fingers.

CherryPie said...

And such elegant fingernails :-)

mama meji said...

Great take on the theme. Now you made me wonder how'd my already wrinkled hands look by the time I'm 70!

Moggs Tigerpaw said...

Nice nails. Well looked after. You look to have avoided any joint problems at all, congrats on that.

Your hands look younger than your years. I guess they have that in common with your outlook ^_^

Expat Traveler said...

At times I wished I took a photo of my grandmother, my mom and myself together with our hands. We had the exact same hands! Well, but there was progression, of at least 30 yrs apart.

Expat Traveler said...

p.s. - this is such a great pick!

sally in norfolk said...

what beautiful nails.... something i would love :-)

Patricia said...

I think your hands are lovely, JMB, and don't look 70 at all. Hope your weekend is smooth and delightful!

crazy working mom said...

Your nails are perfectly manicured and I love your rings. :)

You have lovely hands. Nice shot.

My wrinkles are here!

Flo said...

Those are pretty good looking hands for 70!! I hope mine look that good when I'm that age!!

Mine is up over at Flo's Place

Janice Thomson said...

Excellent take on the theme JMB. You have lovely hands that match your equally lovely person :)

Gretchen said...

Great photo! It just shows you've lived a REAL life, not a Hollywood botoxed life.

A. said...

I've always had skin prone to wrinkles but in the end couldn't bring myself to show the world. :) Your hand looks great!

P.S. He loves you... said...

Clever!

Emzkie said...

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

You've got lovely hands and, from what I remember, your face is not wrinkled at all, jmb! My prob is my FEET are wrinkled!

Mu Tai Dong said...

I thought maybe a scrotum pic?

Deb @ Sugarfused said...

Lovely!
My hands just turned 50 and look older. I suppose I'll "grow" into them one day, too ;~)

Have a nice weekend!

starnitesky said...

Great photo, your hands are doing ok for 70!

Enjoy your weekend.

Cathy said...

I also have to to tell you that at 70 your hands look better and younger than mine at 56. Also I love your Pharmacist ring, very unique. Sorry I haven't been here in awhile, we were gone for about 5 days this week.

Colin Campbell said...

Lovely shot JMB. They look like they have seen a lot. Plenty more to see no doubt.

Mar said...

Love your manicure, nice hands, jmb!!

Enigma said...

Now THAT is a hand with character!! Great shot. My contribution to the week's "wrinkled" theme is up. Hope you will come visit and leave a link!

eastcoastlife said...

hahaha.... I was expecting to see you. :P

You have nice fingers and nails though. I like the ring with the Rx. :)

Mike said...

Nice photo.
Thanks for your visit. I add an english translation for that post.

Lord James Bigglesworth said...

Hmmmm!

Sean Jeating said...

Very handy (post), jmb. :)

Liz said...

Lovly hands. Caring hands.

Very elegant fingers too. I've read about your ring. What a lovely reminder of your friend - and a lesson for me too. Blogging is so educational!

Katney said...

I've always had unlovely hands. Not so much for wrinkles as for bumpy knuckles and dreadful nails. Maybe they will eventually look age appropriate, but I think they currently are about ten years older than I am.
