Fun with fractals -

"Whatever Blows Your Skirt Up"
digitally manipulated fractal flame collage
A new plug-in has entered the array at The Secret Visual Laboratory and I'm still in the middle of playing around with the possibilities it offers. It also gives me pause to go back and use some of the old filters that I use rarely and working on this was quite a bit of fun. The title is a clue to what you're seeing but be prepared to consider a radically different perspective if attempting to discern the human form within. The basic elements are a pair of fractal flames that were layered and sent on to the photo editors, manipulators and plug-ins. That said, this post is one of those completely experimental pieces that managed to escape. Enjoy.

Two very different fractals were layered and then manipulated to create this piece. I see something completely different myself, but, as you say, there is something of a flower in this. :)

This really IS beautiful, weird but beautiful! And I feel it's very exotic and sensual. And yes, sexual too. Wow!

Oh I like this one Mick, it looks like butterflies to me. Love the pastel colors and soft forms.

I certainly see the butterfly forms in this myself, but, it's a woman dancing. Wildly, with abandon! :)
