Lens-Artists Challenge 113 – Labors of Love

This week our guest host Rusha Sams gives us a timely theme – A Labor of Love. 

Here is my entry:

“.. the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking.”   — Steve Jobs

Wilt flowers were carefully trimmed by hand:

“Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.”   —Steve Jobs

Beautiful hand-made pincushions, each has its own uniqueness:

Stay hungry, stay foolish.

–Steve Jobs

Pine trees are carefully trimmed by hand, no matter how many hours it takes:

Many thanks to Rusha’s Labors of Love theme. Through her beautiful post, Rush recognizes people in different parts of the world that “pour themselves into their work — paid or unpaid — with commitment, ingenuity, and a sincere desire to make a difference. For them, work has become more than just work. It has become a labor of love.” You really don’t want to miss it. 

I would also like to take this opportunity to extend our special thanks to our healthcare workers caregivers heroes during this troubling time. You work in heroic ways during this pandemic. It is hard to imagine waking up in the morning to face what you do every day.

Please remember to link them to Rusha’s original post here, and to use the Lens-Artists Tag to help us find you.

We hope you’ll join us next week. I will host LAPC Challenge #114 on September 12th.
