Congratulations to Michael who won last weeks Skyline theme with the photo below.

I spoke to Michael and this is what he had to say...

I congratulate the other finalists for their fabulous photos and sincerely thank all those who voted for my pic. Having the support from so many on Skyline Storm for this particular theme (as well as it being #1 for the week) was very very special given it was the week of Hurricane Sandy, which devastated the New York City region. During this difficult time I've seen so many people lending a helping hand to one another - which brings me to this week's theme "Helping Hands". Please shoot photos that predominantly feature hands in the act of doing something for someone. It could be a supportive emotional gesture like a hand on a shoulder or holding someone, or perhaps physically giving, lifting or carrying something for someone or feeding a baby or tying a shoe lace. Our hands can be very expressive in communicating and working to help others. I look forward to see what you come up with.

How to enter


If you wish to enter the theme this week, please tag your photo (on the edit/organise screen) with the tag theme-helpinghands.

Well done Michael! And to think I just rescued a lost wallet an hour ago and didn't photograph myself handing it over! It may have confused the rightful owner mind you....
