We were invited to a book reading by Sarita Mandanna and Aminatta Forna at Foyles Bookshop. I took my camera along and took the following pictures. And muppet BD forgot to take photo’s of the books, but it was a bit cerebral and quiet, I didn't think they would like me taking the photographs. But the faces were quite expressive. (Slideshow here)
I found her hands full of character. They were a woman’s hands, hands of experience, hands which have touched, loved and felt. Hands which are as comfortable holding a pan as a gun, a pencil as well as a trowel. Very nice.
A shy smile.
