Just one more...

By mrswoolybill
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,

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.

A pretty penny has been spent on Penny's jewellery by the looks.

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.

This is the best of the series by far. I love her rings. Good for her, spending what she has on what makes her happy.
