Anyone who has eaten a macaron can attest to their delightful flavors and light, airy texture. This photo shows us not only some magnificent-looking cookies, but show-stopping packaging as well. I love the way the confections are neatly lined up, the colors varying in intensity and hue. The black box provides a striking and sophisticated backdrop to showcase them from. Everything is sitting atop a black leather surface, further elevating the elegance. This composition truly captures the essence of a macaron.
Thank you to Louis Beche for sharing this photograph via creative commons (and having enough self-control to take photos before devouring them all)!
