Somewhat Spiralish

It's a Grayscale Graphic Today
Click to Enlarge

    Today's fractal is a study in gray. And spirals. The importance of being gray and a spiral. And having an outside=fmod. This is an important insight, or so I'm told. And in further news  the Apr. 22 post is fixed. Somebody helpfully pointed out the Bubble Spiral thumbnail link was broken and wouldn't download. Details,details the life of a blogger is harder than I thought.

Bubble Spiral

Bubble Spiral

            I called it  Bubble Spiral because it looks like a spiral of bubbles. My logic is flawless....bwahahahaha!!!

Fractint and Fmod Colouring

This is definitely a fractal

      If you are familiar with Fractint the smooth colouring using outside=fmod instead of atan or decompostion might be interesting.The fmod  proximity value was set at 0.1 instead of the typical 0.01. For comparison the same fractal with outside=iter and default map is below.

Fractals, Fractint and the Droste Effect

 Recursion and Chocolate

Click to enlarge

        The Droste effect is is named after a brand of Dutch cocoa which used the technique of recursively placing increasingly smaller copies of an image on the labels of its tins and boxes. Todays fractal exhibits such optical reverberation. Two sizes are posted today, one at 800x600 and one at 3200x2400. Use the big one to zoom in and verify the presence of visual feedback.

Last Monday I posted a mutant big head minibrot. Now I present the obese Mr.Fatso Brot.
Hopefully it will amuse the fractal enthusiasts out there.
Lots more to come -Max Iter
