Merry Christmas to you and to those whom you cherish, Manyee, and thanks for sharing your beautifull pictures. I really believe that it is worth to make it to be in contact with our increasingly small world.
I am at Granby with my father. We have a great time together preparing the banquet to come for Christmas.
Take care my young friend.

Hi Manyee, I'm not normally keen on frames within frames but I think this one works quite well here. Lovely geometrical pattern. Good shot, well done.

Black and white works very well to focus on the interesting spiral pattern. Also like the red color of the frames, and the double-framing with the outer picture-frame darker. All works to concentrate the focus on the center spiral, while the single red flower lets the eye wander to the rest of the picture again. A work of art, and a great eye-catcher.
Merry Christmas ManYee!

Wow, what a fabulous, original, and creative presentation. I just love it. This is almost as if there are 3 photos in one. The inner square with the very sharp and well exposed spiral aloe, the outer square with the rest of the plant, but somewhat subdued in brightness, and then of course the magic touch of the brightly coloured and joyful little flower at the bottom left corner. Add to this the very fitting and complimentary frames surrounding the various areas and you end up with a most interesting and pleasing result. Wow, again. It sure was a fitting way to convey your holiday greetings.
Excellent work and TFS.
PS. Although I am too late for the holiday greetings and all that stuff addressed on this photo (heck, it was 2005) at least we have exchanged our greetings for this year (2007) and well wishes on other postings.

I have seen this plant before on TN, but I still find it bizzare!
Thanks for sharing your work, and I add the photo to my theme "nature's oddities"
