City In a Garden

This was taken in Singapore, in the gardens by the bay. A man made nature park in central Singapore. It’s an initiative by the Singapore government to transform Singapore from a "Garden City" to a "City in a Garden”. I shot this particular plant because it caught the light beautifully and the way it sat within its bed composed itself, it had an almost artificial look which complimented the whole concept behind its being.
