fallingwater, flowingstream

The favorite sister and I took a spontaneous road trip on Sunday to Pennsylvania. Ever seen a house built on a waterfall? If not, then you probably haven't visited Frank Lloyd Wright's famous Fallingwater. The house was built in 1935 for the Kaufman family, although we've given some real thought to moving in. If you're ever in the area, be sure to visit and see the beautiful piece of architecture for yourself. Take the tour (skip the food).

While you're in the area, you should also check out the falls at Laurel Highlands. The view is beautiful and makes for a good family picture.

fall into fractals

When I'm not taking photographs or entertaining myself with music, I like to experiment with fractal art. What exactly is a fractal and how is it made? This type of art form typically offers the artist minimal control over in terms of anticipating and shaping its form and structure, as the fractal is created through mathematical algorithms and patterns. However, the infinite complexity of these patterns (especially when combined with different color schemes and gradients) is truly something to be admired.

These are fractals that I have created in my spare time.

Thanks for viewing. Feel free to browse through my fractal gallery.
