Let's Fractalize Now

Everybody knows what fractals are... you just think to broccoli - you take the whole or the infinitesimal part, the structure won't change. Behind broccoli you find mathematics.

Every day at a few minutes past midnight (Wisconsin time), a new fractal is automatically generated by a variation of Julien C. Sprott's program.
The figure above is today's fractal with a code that identifies it according to a scheme described by Julien.

February 2008/10th' Fractal
February 2009/9th' Fractal
February 2008/8th' Fractal
February 2008/7th' Fractal
February 2008/6th' Fractal
(Older Fractals of the Day are saved in an archive).

Inspire yourself, visit Chaos Demonstrations, Strange Attractors (red/blue glasses), More Strange Attractors, Julia Sets, Quadratic Map Basins, Iterated Function Systems, Strange AttractorSymmetric Icons, Newsgroup Collection, Animated Gif Attractors, Natural Fractals, Publication Quality Attractors.

Now I assume you want to start and create fractals yourselves, so here you can find a large choice of programs.
And last but not least : Fractal Music !

Legendary Camel Spider !

This blog was primarily intended for publishing anything I like...
today is 'Spider Day' because I've just found this...

As we just can't talk on and again about presidential love stories, fractals, UFOs, markets
evolution, mafiosi under arrest, Berlusco's devotion to money, hip hop, chaos theory, sacred
geometry, nightclubbers, popes, dahus, sashimis, or american elections... let's dedicate a few
line to these God's solifugae creatures...

They actually aren't spiders at all, they're solifugae. Along with spiders, they are members
of the class Arachnida and are called 'camel spiders' because they live in the desert. They
are somewhat of an urban legend and currently one of the most searched items on the

The camel spider stories began to spread during the 1990-91 Gulf War. Now, with the continued presence of U.S. forces in the Middle East, the stories are becoming legendary but most of them are completely untrue. These creatures are (usually) not dangerous to humans... (more)... except for their bites - I dare to say !

(by exspree).

A Matt Walker BBC article [on July 2010] explains, in a video, their hunting technique :
Camel spiders have evolved a unique way to capture their insect prey."

A Lighthouse in my Former Fief !

And nobody told G@tto !

I lived in this area for more than ten years and they just waited I was gone
to build this !
A brilliant idea for signalling a fish market so well hidden behind this concrete
wall that It took me a while to discover it, quite by chance.

A few weeks ago I fell on this and this in Eric's "Paris Daily Photo" so I just waited
for an occasion to return in my ancient fief and shoot this stunning tower.
Thank you Eric !

"La Criée du Phare" - 69, rue Castagnary/15e
[M° Plaisance or Bus 62].

Just behind the market there is the railway Montparnasse Station... see it ?
Fishes & oisters come to Paris straight from the Atlantic...
not exactly for sighseeing.
