Gallery Six

THIS GALLERY is the beginning of what I've created since I got the website up and running. I don't know how things are for other Fractalists, but I'll go through bouts of fascination with certain formulae or rendering parameters, and keep coming back until I can get a spot that's over the "only 90% right" threshold. Once I do get one, it's usually good for at least two -- sometimes as many as six -- pictures. Most of these never do more than sit on my secondary drive, still not right enough to use but not quite wrong enough to delete. There are some formulae -- the nova variations most prominently -- which continue to tease my interest, despite my failure to get anything I'm really happy with out of them for months (kind of like the baseball player who kept a bat mounted over his mantle because "there were still a couple hits left in it.")

So here, with warts intact and still in more or less chronological order, is a record of my continuing interest (or obsession) and development (or "perseveration") with these things called Fractals.
