If the busy hands weren't in the photo, this would be a very posey portrait. A picture of a bride. But, with the addition of the hands, engaged in veil attachment, adds a story to this image. Now we know this is pre-wedding. Having experienced make-up, hair updo and dress zipping, she awaits the final touch. What is she thinking? To whom do the hands belong? Would a bridesmaid be wearing that watch? They aren't an old woman's hands.

I like that the red of the watch face matches the bride's lip color.
