Ideals are like stars: you will not succeed in touching them with your hands, but like the seafaring man on the desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them you reach your destiny.

Hi Eric – I was looking at the design and just wondered if that’s actually a fractal? I can’t quite remember the excta definition of a factal though, so thought I’d ask… 🙂

Hi Mo, and thanks for your visit and question. No, it’s not a fractal, but it is somewhat reminiscent of one. In photomanipulation software, I duplicated the basic shape on a new layer a couple of times, scaled the copied shapes to be smaller, and played with their color schemes and that of the main shape, then flattened the layers and saved the picture as a JPEG when I was satisfied with it.
