Festive gerberas

Celeste Mookherjee

Long Beach, United States

Artist's Description

While walking in the Belmont Shore section of Long Beach (California), I spotted these brightly colored gerbera daisies in a florist’s outdoor display. Rather than capture the entire bouquet, I moved in to emphasize the festive petal edges framing the center of another flower.
