Photography: Fractal Food: Self-Similarity on the Supermarket Shelf

I've just posted Fractal Food on the site. This is something I've had on the to-do list for some time--a macrophotographic essay of a remarkable vegetable I'd never seen before moving to Switzerland. Reading the manuscript of Rudy Rucker's in-press book The Lifebox, the Seashell, and the Soul (online excerpt) got me thinking again about natural computation and provided the impetus to actually finish the project. Vegetables are remarkably cooperative photographic subjects! This document is my first foray into 100% compliant XHTML (albeit transitional, not strict) and CSS; I've added validator buttons so you can put the HTML through the wringer yourself if you wish. It's also the first new document added to the site since I began the project to migrate to the new server precisely three months ago yesterday.
