Been absent a long time.  Just picked up Mandlebulber and created a few images.  

I find the process similar to photography.  When photographing:  I wander around until I see something I like, I frame it, select depth of field, make choices about lighting, etc, and take a shot.  When "mandelbulbing":  I wander around in a virtual world until I see something I like, I frame it, select depth of field, make choices about lighting, etc, and take a shot.
Just joined and uploaded four images of a set of twelve that I created a couple of years ago.  I had an unexpected whirlwind opportunity to travel to Europe and St Petersburg.  Took lots of pictures and a few months later had the feeling that it was all a dream. Hence, the dreamlike quality I imparted to the images. I entitled the set "Life as a Dream".
