Photographs ???

Yes, photos - I'm almost 50 and this Casio Exilim EX-Z2300 is the first real camera I've ever owned (discounting the Kodak instamatic that worked for around 2 months in the 70's). Got this one at the Gadget Show Exhibition in Birmingham in around May?? 2011, didn't go there with the intention of buying anything but couldn't resist - price £97 inc. 4GB card ;) Camera drawbacks - not great on anti-shake or in low light conditions, otherwise excellent !

Devious Journal Entry

Devious Journal Entry

Hi all, The BMFAC contest results are out: http://www.fractalartcontests.com/2011/winners.php This year's entries were in my opinion yet again an improvement on previous years however I'm a little disappointed that few of the 3D entries even came close to the best 3D Fractal Art you can see on DA or at http://www.fractalforums.com/ so I hope next BMFAC (whenever it is) there will be a lot more 3D work submitted. I'm also again disappointed at the shortage of good Apophysis, Incendia or Xenodream entries.
