You can actually create your own fractels with Tierazon v29 which you can find, along with lots of other interesting stuff, here:

I never thought to check. Just assumed it was an expensive proprietary app...

It's quite easy and quite fun even if you're just making it up as you go along, like I do, totally oblivious to what these "formulas" actually mean...

The possibilities seem infinite... And, besides, they're pretty... :D

Yes, they are pretty, with a good reason. Fractals represent the way most natural things grow - alive or not. A coastline, the characteristic ways the branches and twigs of different species of trees grow,...

I did once try plotting a fractal from the formula - but it gets boring long before it gets pretty - hurrah! for computers.

I like your two examples. Maybe we should ask Kay & Dave whether non-photographic images can qualify for Pic of the Week...

Yes, it used to be "Photo" OTW and we deliberately changed it to "Pic" OTW, so that we could include non-photographic images.

We've had some great ones from Tate, which was what inspired the change in the first place.

Had a great afternoon playing around with this fantastic programme. It was so easy, and I am so proud of my achievement. Just got to conquer loading a photo (of the right size) now.

Don't start printing them, SSue - or you'll be spending a fortune in cartridges...

No, I'm just happy to keep them as photos, for now anyway. :D
