Z for ABC Wednesday

ABC WEDNESDAY ROUND 5: Z!




zesty stripes aglow
one zany zebra
zig-zags through the trees
with zeal for eye-to-eye

Zebra Redux

This zany zebra fractal was created using Fractal Explorer software. It's been printed on greeting cards, business cards and as small wall art. Personable? Sketchy? Weird? Fractals are somewhat like searching for objects in clouds. 

Zebra redux, not because there aren't other z words, but because I ♥ this zebra.

And, sometimes, you have to hang with ♥.

This is a beautiful piece of Art. I had to look closely to see what it is.

Great poem too.

I think this is 'way cool'. :) Fractal used to be a really big deal well over 20 years ago. Seems I am hearing a lot about them again lately. I really like this one. Great post.

I had never heard of a fractal, but this is a very cool piece of art. I love the poem, too. You found plenty of Z's, by Zeus!

I can understand why you love your zebra, - very intriguing and light-hearted.

Whoa! That is too cool for words! I am almost tempted to go run and find that software!

Amazing art! I learned about fractals several years ago when a particularly talented student wrote a paper for class about them. Somehow we never learned about these when I was in school:)

Your fractal is beautiful - something to investigate further - that's what I love about reading different blogs, so thank you!

Great stuff - I guess you should never cross a Zany Zebra...

Wonderfulwords, I like the way that you managed to put a Z word on every line.

The fractal is amazing too, here's the trick - close and cover your left eye and stare at the fractal with your right eye while rubbing it gently. With your left eye still covered, blink your right eye rapidly, the fractal should now take on a life of its own and project itself towards you, changing shape and colour in the atmosphere.
Wow, this looks fantastic! It's like a kaliedoscope!
Warning; DON'T try this at home..
