The Red, Blue, Orange
While visiting The Bandwidth Barn work-space in Khayelitsha this past week, I noticed beautiful patterns strewn across the floor.
The light was coming in through the windows, and projecting wonderful lines, shadows, and colours onto the concrete floor... so I thought I would share them with you too.
The 'Unsplash' Part
It took little more than 10-seconds, and I had my shots. Just like like that. And I love these pictures.
If you like them too... head on over to my Unsplash page where you download them (and many others) for free - and use them for anything from desktop & smartphone wallpapers to social media and marketing stock.
Hey, if you really like an image, why not print it out and hang it on the wall or make your own calendar?
A postcard or e-card perhaps? How about a new Canva project?

A Quick Head's Up
So, I've been fairly active on Unsplash for about 9-months now... and It's been a really interesting journey. I've uploaded a huge variety of images for anyone to use and enjoy, and while the notion of giving out my work for free feels a little weird (especially since photography is my livelihood) I can see how it sort of works... and pretty much makes sense.
I'm not going to get stuck into the discussion of why it's great, and why it's possible not so great right now... but I will be writing a meaty blog post on my whole experience (as well as that of others) when I have been on Unsplash for a whole year and can actually lay down a legit and helpful opinion on the platform from the seat of a complete 365-day experience.
I will also share my most popular (and unpopular) images, and why often what we think is a beautiful image is not, and how sometimes those "fuggly" shots are actually pretty awesome.
I know I'm getting ahead of myself by about 3-months - but stay tuned and look out for that post because I'm absolutely sure you're going to enjoy it and find it really useful.
I will also be including information on how you can get the most out of Unsplash and it's seriously cool community of contributors, whether you are a photographer yourself, or not.
Another Nice Download
In the meantime, check out one of my images selected by Unsplash themselves as a recommended wallpaper for iPhone: https://unsplash.com/photos/vCIogaIRB0I taken while on my last trip to Nambia.
