It's not a flower macro :-)
Heavy equipment, shattered mirror, reflection of a humongous truck tire....

The deep profile of the tire/tyre looks good in the cracked mirror, I wonder who looked into the mirror... :0

Ths reminds me that sometimes "looking back" on life can be painful. Too mentally occupied with the day to day stuff to repair the splintered and cracked things of "yesterday". Great picture.

Thank heavens! Finally some relief from all those breath-taking, gorgeous, fabulous, astounding flower macros! On to puzzlement and does a truck tire look like a hand with a ring on the index finger?! I love the way you "look."

very good abstract / colour / graphic shot - reminds me of Bryan Petterson

@M@ndy: Listen to this...I wanted to know more about your reference to Brian Petterson. So, I googled him..and realized I am reading one of his excellent photography books right NOW ! Thanks for your generous comments and for the little nudge that inspired me to go to the BP site ! :-))

I love this strong abstract composition and colors!

Reminds of Joyce's "cracked mirror of Irish art." Is this the shattered mirror of American art? It would surely occur at a construction site. Great and powerful image.....
