Inspiration by Kirsten Bruening

This close-up photograph of a daisy was taken on the day I got my new 50mm Macro lens. I went into our garden looking for something flowering and found this little faded daisy. Daisies stand for childlike innocence and remind me of long summer days of our childhood when we happily sat in the grass weaving wreaths of daisies.
