    A beautiful fractal design David!

  • Thanks, Thea! I really like the way this one turned out. Many others on which I tried this Rosette Symmetry just turned into a murky blur, but this one preserved some great detail and color. Best, David

    lmao Hugh… at least that I would understand! lol You’re welcome David! :)

  • As long as you don’t tell anybody, the real way I made this was after accidentally stepping on something squishy on the kitchen floor the other night, I turned on the light to discover it was a slice of lime with red salsa, so I just took a photo of the mess, and named it “Sub-lime” – get it? lmao, David
