Why Mittened Hands?
The expression was found in the book “A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian” written by Marina Lewycka. As a Norwegian I’m used to long, snowy and cold winters, and mittens are without a doubt a necessity. I had never heard this expression in english before and I have carried it with me since I first read it back in 2009. I thought that the expression was an excellent band name, but since I never managed to form a band I had to use it somewhere else. As some of you know it’s quite hard to do things properly wearing mittens….
Loved that book!
This past winter I discovered that gloves with “texting dots” for touch-screens can work quite well when operating a camera.
Nice blog! Am discovering more of it now – thanks you so much for stopping by Island Vignettes!

English is good for that … turning a noun into a an adjective! 🙂 In my native tongue, that would be «vantade händer» which just sounds plain silly…
B+W takes me back to my photography roots, will enjoy exploring your blog!
PS: I’ve tried using a camera with ordinary gloves on, with fingers, that wasn’t easy either! Cheers!

Hello Mitten Hands..
Just want to say thank you for visiting my WP blog recently.
For some reason, it’s been a bit of a challenge to get into writing a recent blog post.
I’ve been more visually minded these days than writing out thoughts about a particular experience.
I should have something to post by March or sooner.
Thank you for the recent like on one of my posts. Your photography is amazing…I look forward to following your page.
Excellent photography and a really stunning blog. I just wanted
