Did you see a hand there? Now, see if you can spot everyone else’s hand. Do you see why this family picture is bizarre?

Just to make sure: both of the mother’s hands are used in holding the infant. The older sister’s hands are in her lap. And, the father is way too far away to be resting one hand on the shoulder of the leftmost child.
