well, i've done the promised - off i go again for an uncertain period!...
things to do, wounds to heal...
stay well!
bye, dras

actually, 2015. has been rather a tough+rough year for me, but i survived the hardest blows and can at least leave a sign of life here, finally!... ;-}

had planned to make some major things, but slow/painful departure of some people very dear to me, along with many failures+uninspiring circumstances+health issues (including e.g. slipped disc in my already troubled spine) have heavily distracted me & slowed me down, as if i'm not slow enough(so – mission only partially accomplished, still at work)!...

the trend continues, so pls don't expect me to chat much - i'll just submit what i'd promised+some pieces that i managed to accomplish in the meantime (during my lucida intervalla)!...

 

also, here are the links to 2 of the above mentioned planned things that i yet managed to accomplish:  zoomin' bss + lullaby for mr. sierpinsky

both are relatively simple animations, but hd 1080 (i dream big – can't help it) so not quite recommendable to submit directly to da! also, their biggest portions have been concieved/roughly set long ago, just waited to render+(re)arrange/stitch together+elaborate (i belive you fellow-fractalists can imagine how long this can last)!...

 

my oh, my - did i miss you, friends+this place!...

hope you're all fine+healthy!... ;-}

hi, dras :-}

as i'd announced, i've unloaded my accumulated archive (along with some fresh pics) and now must go off, to pursue some actions that don't leave much room for computerwork, not to mention artistic ventures (photo+fractal at least - ok, some in the background)!... 

during these few months i met a coupla really blissful+inspiring deviants - i warmly hope to find you all in good shape+mood wen i return from the trip!...

oh, yes - maybe somebody noticed that my 'cm_1' album is completed+closed and 'cm_3' opened+active (i.e. was until now)... well - some of the pics from 'cm_2' were involved (as an artistic concept) in a major international photo contest, so i decided to wait with publishing of the whole series until the selection is over! now it is over, and i submit here now at least the trailer, hope to come back soon & be able to submit the pics too!...

until then - stay well! ;-}

'caverna magica 2':

(if only briefly...)
much photographicizing work (among other things) in the last months; 'caverna magica' ending today its 3rd exhibition; 'caverna magica 2' will soon be publicized; almost no fractalizing lately (tried to cope with incendia+mb3d, but got frustrated with many input controls that are awkward to handle with head), and this area will have to wait some time, at least until i'll have finished a couple of other projects that i started. meanwhile (considering da) - brief archive unloading!... ;-}
let me paraphrase john denver:

leaving while i'm still sane,
don't know when i'll be back again!...

things to do...
stay well! ;-}
(i'll try to drop in here'n'there!)
...and 'caverna magica' is now being exhibited in bol (island brač) as well!... ;-}
today my 1st photo-exhibition opens!... ;-}
(in a nuclear attack shelter...)
i jump briefly in from my quietness, just to say 'hello, i'm ok'! (maybe some care... i know some do care!) :)
as i said, i'm working on a project that involves no fractalizing nor photo-shooting, yet i managed to make 2 sidekicks during pauses and i leave them as the promised signs of life. since they both are hd-compliant (uf5) animations, they are not very suitable for this site, so i put links here:
sidekick 1 and sidekick 2
stay well, mtfbwy!
bye, dras
all right, i kinda snapped!... actually, this is a side-effect of a project i'm working on, and it means i won't be here so often for awhile (am not already, as some may have noticed)! and while i may post a deviation now or then (mainly previously made ones, just as sign-of-life), my thankyou-welcome (even with standard ;-} ) and comment/answer writing will absent! please, know that the possible favs and/or comments will be appreciated!...
mtfbwy!

i've just opened a new (photo-) folder in my gallery drnda42.deviantart.com/gallery…. that folder is connected rather directly to the movie 'smoke' . as i pondered more deeply about this, i realized that whole my photographic work since 2008 is (maybe subconsciously) inspired by this movie! as i got the opportunity to shoot photos again after a long pause (at first with a borrowed camera, later with my really own one, a friend's present), on that very occasion this movie was introduced to me, as well. i saw it immediately and it has remained my constant shadow, paralleling my active side of life, notably as an amateur  photographer. in fact, my sudden fractals-infatuation is sort of a move-away from this pattern ('...and now for something completely different!) - maybe even a desperate escape from the 'real' life, a way of creating new worlds instead of describing this one?... yet i feel them both ways to be perfectly balanced weights and i feel very comfortable discovering fine distinctive features in my seemingly dull surrounding and really don't care if my photos resemble each other and are not prima vista attractive like in 'better' (and analogue) times, and it's surely fun to take'n'make them, as well as fractals! deliverance, i'd say!...
as my guru, auggie wren would say - slow down!...
