These are two images that I took the same day as the images in my last post. I wanted to post them separately from the other set as they have a very different feel to them. Where the previous group has a very painterly and abstract feel to them, these have a more mathematical feel.
When I looked at the shapes through the lens, I was immediately reminded of a Mandelbrot fractal. I am not great at math, but when I was a kid I was fascinated with a computer program my Dad had that created fractal patterns. You could zoom in continuously – infinitely – and see the same patterns repeating over and over. It was pretty amazing.
Interestingly, it was only on reading up on fractals a bit for this post that I discovered that the frost crystals form which naturally on cold glass are actually natural fractals.
Nature is just awesome!!
Anyway, I hope you like these as much as I do!
