Three-dimensional Repeating Patterns

June 14th, 2011 by Richard Stowey

I’ve been quite interested recently in repeating three-dimensional patterns. Specifically in lighting, architectural spaces and places where lights and objects can be used to give more life to bland spaces, but also as a way of creating a focal point.

So, I’ve created a new Flickr group to help combine these types of images. Take a look at the slideshow below, or check out the Three-dimensional Repeating Patterns group on Flickr.

Honda VT750C

I’d normally expect to get an older and slightly mis-treated courtesy bike when taking my Honda CB600F Hornet in for an MOT. recently though, I was pleasantly surprised by Hartgate Motorcycles when they gave me this Honda Shadow VT750C demo model whilst mine was being prepared for the next 12 months road worthyness!

Self-screening Blog Posts and the WordPress Android Application

April 12th, 2011 by Richard Stowey

The wordpress app has brought with it an additional barrier for crap blog posts.

I usually have an idea for a blog post whilst doing something else away from my computer. The mobile app allows me to put my thoughts down briefly and then add more to the post and actually make it live at a later date using my home computer.

This time in between which has only been created because of the app means there is an additional screening step in the posting process which helps me to reduce the amount of crap I write about.

This probably being one which should have been scrapped.

Of course, it doesn’t allow for the fact that I can publish directly from the Android application!
