    Hand of Fatima, Sousse, Tunisia, 2008 Fatima was the compassionate daughter of the Prophet Mohammed, a maker of miracles. The hand of Fatima is used throughout Tunisia, as well as other North African countries, as a form of superstitious protection, particularly in the form of doorknockers. I saw dozens of them, but this one was memorable because it was as blue as the door behind it. Superstition is rooted in mystery, and so is this image. I loved the play of light and shadow.
