Freedom and Happiness by Jose Juniel Rivera-Negron

This photograph reminds me a lot of my mother, she loves flowers, specially sunflowers. I took the photo one day on my way to the stores for shopping and saw all these flowers out-side of a big store and just started to shoot some pictures, and people probably thought I was crazy, but the sun light was there and so was the flowers, so I kept on. To me, these kind of photos have a sense of freedom and happiness. That’s what I felt when I saw all these flowers.
