“We live beneath many layers. Some are for our protection, and some are for our control.”
― Russell Eric Dobda
Generally, I stay away from ‘tight’ shots of flowers, preferring to show the entire blossom. This image is an exception. As I was composing some images of a Gerbera recently, I was really noticing the transition between the inner petals and the outer petals and how lovely that transition was. These “Fringes” pull me into the blossom, layer upon layer, each one looking like a beautiful brush stroke, each one unique, so I thought I’d share it through this image, for your consideration.
