One of my passions in life – when I’m not otherwise consumed by work, family life or writing – is computer programming, and I have always loved fractal images. As a general rule, every time I was introduced to a new programming environment I would learn how to to display graphical images so that I could draw fractals.
One of my steadfast guides in this recurring obsession is The Science of Fractal Images by Peitgen et al. (goodreads; Amazon.com). The images in the book are beautiful, and I can’t claim to be able to reproduce them, but it has been fun to see how far I could get. The images in this blog post are from a set I created eight years ago. The one right at the top is based on the cover image of The Science of Fractal Images.
