Texture Tuesday: Gerberas and Glass

“Texture



These rather unusual Gerberas looked a little ragged when I bought them, but I loved the color so I risked it. They were so floppy today that I had to cut the stems short and transfer to a short container. From there, it was a session for Texture Tuesday, a "Free and Easy" edition.

I did a shoot with Gerbera daisies too! I love your shot, the angle, the little bottles with the wire basket, and yes, the color of the flowers is wonderful!

Your skills made "ragged, floppy" gerberas look just lovely. A great piece of photo art, Evelyn.

Evelyn, this is one of my favorites from you! I saw it on FB this morning and wanted to LIKE it, but I was already on the clock working and didn't want my boss to think I was goofing off. This is really very pretty!!

I understand your thoughts about the Gerbera purchase. I've done the same thing because I just can't resist,,,,,only to have them droop the next day. I like the way you arranged them in the little glass bottle along side the other glass bottes Bravo!

Oh so sweet! You have a great collection of bottles for a photo shoot. I have a drooping daisy on my coffee table at this moment. You've given me some inspiration to rescue and photograph it!
