The Flower Bed
This work was captured at the riverbank in Shanghai, just opposite the enormous towers of the financial district. The noise of the traffic and riverboats was pervasive, yet in complete defiance of the pandemonium going on around it, a small public garden was making a grand statement in perfect silence. Everywhere the plants were successful and the multi-faceted flowers were all in full bloom. The entire area resembled a yellowish rug with spottings of orange, red and vivid purple that almost completely blocked any trace of green from the leaves.
