Persephone's Portfolio: Gerber Daisy

The moral of the story: never throw anything away.  I took this photo probably 10 years ago, with slide film (remember Fuji Velvia?  with 50 speed ASA?)  Periodically I go through my old slide books, not just to reminisce, but to hunt for hidden gold.  I always liked this shot, but I like it better now.
Now we have Photoshop with lots of cool filters and stuff.  I used the watercolor filter and it brought this image into new life.  When I shoot flowers, I make a point to look at the sides and bottom of the bloom. Gerber daisies look wonderful from about any angle, and they are very photogenic.  Not every flower is -- daffodils are nearly impossible...

This image, like any on my blog or on my website, are available for sale at or at my gallery

We still have a openings on our Tuscany/Sorrento Photo Tour -- for more information, check out  my website or at
