I hadn't intended to upload any more from the Christmas flower-arranging class but I have been delighted by the response to the series. So here is one final addition to the series – looking down on my friend Penny's hands.
These hands have appeared in my portfolio before. Penny is a maker...
Thanks for looking,
Moira

A wonderfully crisp and detailed focal point Moira, which when I saw the thumbnail, I thought it was a woman plucking a festive bird.

Got to hand it to you, Moira, this is a fine series TongueGrin (Christmas cracker standard, pun), and seasonal at the same time.

Thanks everyone, I have been busy in the real world this morning.
I think this image has a positive, constructive feel. I love photographing Penny's hands, they have history. She spends her modest pension on silver jewelry, hippy clothes and travel and dreams of the sun. She has had a tough year - cancer, bereavements - but she's a survivor. Looking forward to better times ahead.
