Illustration Friday: Cracked -

"Cracked"
digitally manipulated fractal flame by Mick Mather
The theme of the week at Illustration Friday is cracked. Not so long ago I posted a few images in the Database Series that fit pretty well, but I've already used them. What to do? A search of my fractal flame files was rewarded with a piece that I knew would work just as well after a detour through the Secret Visual Laboratory. I'll be off for a few days, although you're not likely to notice ... in the meantime, please keep those who fight for freedom in your thoughts and prayers over this Memorial Day weekend.

This works perfectly Mick.

Be careful on the roads this weekend and have a blast wherever you go!

I can see you toodling down the Pacific Coast Hwy :)
It's an amazing ride, for sure.
I'll miss it.

Thanks, Laurel, and I will be careful. I'm not going far, but it will keep me busy. My own drives along the coast are over a decade ago and I miss them too. There's one particular 10 or 15 mile stretch, just south of Daly City, that will always remain magical in my imperfect memory. :)

John:
As I say, to me, it's one of the most beautiful and romantic drives I've ever taken.

THE CHARM SCHOOL DROPOUT:
Thanks very much, Sarah.

You're more than welcome as regards my response and I hope someone comes up with an incremental plan that can start turning things around sooner rather than later. I firmly believe, by the bye, that it will be one person, initially, who will begin such a movement ... and, that person will NOT be among those who currently work for the government at any level.

Digital Scott:
As always, I appreciate it when you're moved to respond to one of my pieces. Thanks, Scott!
