postaweek2012 /Weekly Photo Challenge: Hands

When our eyes see our hands doing the work of our hearts, the circle of creation is completed inside us, the doors of our souls fly open, and love steps forth to heal everything in sight.
~Michael Bridge

These are the hands of my good friend.  We spent five days mudding and sanding drywall in a home devastated by Katrina in New Orleans.

Even wearing heavy work  gloves didn’t stop the drywall dust from coating our hands.

Thanks for viewing my post today.  This is a special one for me.

Crazy for Daisies!

Daisies seem to have such intricate petals for a small flower.  Through my macro lens, the petals always appear like soft fabric to me.  They have pleats and folds.  They drape like the most luxurious satin.  

And yet, the daisy is still our simple, well-known flower.  A flower that cheers with its bright button face,  tells if someone loves us, and is a very resilient against the forces of nature. 

Daisies are like sunshine to the ground. ~Drew Barrymore

Daisy "face"!

I called this one "Diamond Daisy". The center sparkles in the light, and the daisy takes on the look of a vintage pin.

Another daisy...

The petals fascinate me!

Thanks for visiting today.
