Really you had to use your imagination, to pick up a succulent plant centered from above in B/W.
Mission accomplished!
Many thanks for sharing Angky.

Great image. i love the tonal range in the leaves, from the almost white edges to the dark outer leaves.

Well, I'm not sure how much I used my imagination.
The plant was just sitting there as I walked by, and suddenly there it just appeared!
My camera had the imagination, I suppose, because it just snapped the shutter and out came this picture.
Thanks for your appreciation.

Color would have given it away, but B&W +square cropping made it abstract and much more interesting

Mandala!
Yes, indeed it is!
I hadn't thought of that
Perhaps the resemblance is what triggered my interest in shooting it.
Thanks!

I quite agree!
I didn't know whether to post it as abstract or nature...
Thanks for the affirmation.
