Created in Apophysis 7×15 as an abstract fractal based on the Bipolar Design tutorial by Fractaldesire on DA currently running in Apophysis Tutorial Fun group. This is another work (see below) from an early, intermediate step in the tutorial, using only the first five transforms (out of 17!).

Gradient fills, mirroring and image replication added in GIMP v2.6, with scale up, “de-magnification” and final render in Ultra Fractal 5.04. Best if viewed larger.

Created from the same apo image as this work:


BD#3: Fab Five (G0690)

“Silver Threads Song Traced to Poets Re-Hash on Order” Shiockton, Wis. (AP).—The love ballad, Silver Threads Among the Gold, which has stirred the hearts of more than one generation, was not the inspiration of an aging poet but a re-hash produced on order. The story developed after the unveiling of a monument here in honor of the author of the words, Eben E. Rexford, who died in 1916. Rexford made a living by writing verse and flower and garden articles for magazines. When he was 18, he wrote and sold for $3 some verses entitled Growing Old. Later, H. P. Danke, composer of the music for Silver Threads, wrote to him requesting words for a song. Rexford dug into his scrapbook and revised Growing Old.

Lyrics:
Darling, I am growing old,
Silver threads among the gold,
Shine upon my brow today,
Life is fading fast away.
But, my darling, you will be, will be
Always fair to me,
Yes, my darling, you will be
Always young and fair to me.
Chorus:
Darling, I am growing old,
Silver threads among the gold,
Shine upon my brow today;
Life is fading fast away.
When your hair is silver white,
And your cheeks no longer bright,
With the roses of the May,
I will kiss your lips and say,
Oh! My darling, mine alone, alone,
You have never older grown!
Yes, my darling, mine alone,
You have never older grown!
chorus
Love can never more grow old,
Locks may lose their brown and gold;
Cheeks may fade and hollow grow,
But the hearts that love will know,
Never, never winters frost and chill;
Summer warmth is in them still;
Never winters frost and chill,
Summer warmth is in them still.
