via About | MatthewRichardsPhotography.

Self PortraitI’m a 22 year old Communications and New Media student in Southern Maine.  I have an interest in photography as well as technology.  My first year at college I was a Computer Technology major but decided that I wanted to use computers rather than fix them.

I purchased my first DSLR as a present to myself for my 21st birthday. Since then I’ve been learning all I can about photography and have been going out taking photos as much as possible. Photography is mainly what you will find on this blog. I also have an interest in web design, film, music, and graphic design.

The World’s Top 10 Most Awesome Staircases

Posted on June 2, 2013

Today is Sunday which means it is guest post day! Today’s post is all thanks to an E-Mail from ‘Ian Loxtonand‘ you while he didn’t write it I will give him full credit for the find and post I have displayed here. So I hope you enjoy it and show it as much love as you do my own top 10′s. But if you think you can do better or interested in doing the same please drop me an E-Mail: But until then here is today’s….

Awesome Staircase

For many, stairs are something to avoid, unless you’re determined to lose some weight. But lovers of nature and spectacular views are more than used to climbing steps and yet more steps to gain the view, though this list of steps may be a challenge for those who get a little dizzy.

The World’s Top 10 Most Awesome Staircases 


Awesome Staircase

Awesome Staircase

10 – Where you are: Peldaños del Cañón  (Rungs of the Canyon)

Where are they going? Designed to descend to the bottom of one of the most famous waterfalls in South America,  lost in the fog along the way in many cases. It is extremely slippery and steep for several tens of metres to a lookout where you can see the dramatic effect, accompanied by hummingbirds,gulls and other local birds

Awesome Staircase

Awesome Staircase

9 – The Step-well of Chand Baori near Jaipur, Rajasthan

Where are they going? These steps lead down to a huge pool, built in the tenth century to overcome the lack of rainfall in the region and store water for long periods. The structure has a total of 3,500 steps, down to a depth of 30 metres — then up again with the water.

Awesome Staircase

Awesome Staircase

8 – Stairs Elbe Sandstone Mountains Dresden, Germany

Where are they going? Stairs carved into the stone of the mountain itself . They date from the 13th century and have been eroded by wind and water, but are still being used daily by tourists.  487steps, though not enough, were restored and expanded in the eighteenth century to facilitate transit.

Excellent Game Play Part I – The Role of Randomness

Design elements used in the Plobb! game

I’m writing this blog to journal my experience designing games. In this entry I’ll give a brief description of how my game is designed. I’ll talk about how thinking through the role of randomness in games in general, led me to design the core mechanic of this game, the rune deck.

The Game

You play as a fantasy character in a battle against the other players. You have a hand of ability cards that you play to move around the board and attack your enemies. These actions are available to you every turn. You also have a “rune” deck, with three each of seven elemental runes. Each ability card tells you how many runes to reveal that turn, and every ability card has bonus effects that depend on which runes you reveal. There is also a resource system called “focus”. You begin the game with three focus, and then each ability tells you how to change your focus, either by gaining one, or spending focus. At the beginning of each turn, each player plays an ability face down and then reveals them simultaneously. The players move and resolve effects one at a time.

How did I get to this design? My goal for this game is to design a tabletop fantasy combat game, with excellent gameplay. You might be asking, “Shouldn’t every game have excellent gameplay?” It’s a good question, but there can be other things to consider when designing a game. If the game you are designing is a simulation, and any game that isn’t totally abstract is a simulation to varying degrees, you need to consider how well your game simulates the scenario. There’s also the aesthetics of the game to consider. So, I wanted to design a game in which the gameplay trumped other considerations. This kind of game design is sometimes referred to as bottom up design.

Future Entries

a game of monsterpocalypse in play

I know that this entry got a bit technical, so thanks for bearing with me. In future entries, I’d like to talk about what was going on in my life when I decided to design my own game, why I designed the rest of the components of the game the way I did, how I came up with the different characters, major changes that the game has gone through so far, major changes that I’ve made to the characters, the story concept for the game, as well as my most current design challenges, and thinking about future expansions for the game. Let me know what you’d like to read about next!

via Excellent Game Play Part I – The Role of Randomness | Game Design Journal.Enforcer Class Heavy Fighter

Character Design: Enforcer

The Enforcer was the first character I designed. It’s difficult to fully express the challenge of designing the first character. The game is a blank page. There are no abilities to compare the first ability to. There is no concept of how diverse a range of abilities the game mechanics can support. There is no sense of how the abilities will play. There is no way to test the first abilities. There is no way to know what the game is. There is no game.

Paths of Glory: western front at the start of ...If you’ve been reading this journal you probably have a pretty good idea of the challenge I faced. You know about as much as I did about my game at this point (a little bit more if you’ve been paying attention). How do you overcome a blank page? You brainstorm. Designing the first character is easy for the same reason it’s difficult: there are no abilities already populating the game that new abilities need to be different from.


I did have some context to work with. Here’s what I already had to work with: choosing actions simultaneously, the rune deck, the resource system, health and damage, a goal for the number of turns a game should take, the mechanic I’d designed for armor, and the board. (The board was still a question at this point, but as I came up with more and more abilities that relied on having a board, it was clear that the board was worth having.) I brainstormed iconic melee abilities I knew I wanted in the game, like charge, area melee attacks, and stuns. I brainstormed abilities that worked with the rune deck: how many runes you reveal, putting specific runes on top of your deck to set up the next turn, and modifying the contents of your rune deck. This brainstorm would serve as a starting point for all of the melee characters abilities, and for the first character, I used as many as I needed.


English: Sid Meier at the Game Developers Conf...I could also work out some basic math before I designed the first ability. I wanted the game to average ten turns. I wanted +1 focus abilities to deal half as much damage as -1 focus abilities. I knew how likely the Enforcer was to block, so I knew what the ratio of damage needed to be between the Enforcer and the rest of the characters. I gave abilities their lowest possible damage average to accommodate the ratio and the focus, and based health totals on the ten turn goal.

Move 1 Burst 1
Sun: 4 Damage

Șic și clasic – “Chic & Classic” luxury fine arts, handmade work, original design

Cand cumperi arta nu cumperi doar ceea ce vezi si pipai cumperi sufletul unui om, sufletul artistului pentru ca el/ artistul s-a uitat in sufletul lui si a scos de acolo ce a gasit


I am into haute couture fashion design and bijoux couture jewelry. I was addicted all my life to elegance and fine arts. Now I am realy free to express myself. No borders, no restrictions. All I do is handmade work, hand made embroidery and hand made clothes, hand made jewelry.

From time to time I post some of my creations here, on my blog. Feel free to enjoy of it and this humble blog brings me unexpected traffic better than a pesonal or registered domain just becouse the best products dont need marketing

The title of this blog is in romanian language “şic şi clasic” and means “chic and classic” as my style of design is

Greetings from Romania

My philosophy

My philosophy of art and life
Don`t think, just follow your instinct, and much more listen the materials with you are working. Each colour asking for a colour, wich shape is asking for a kind of material and also for a kind of colour. If you change the colour everything is changing.
This I`v descovered working and making the things that you can see here
Working, I`v descovered that an artist when he is creating is much more closer to the God than a priest in the church, and this kind of artist can stay at the same “table” with God.
Art show me things about life as much as physics laws do to engineers, becouse also I must use physics laws into my work
Creating I`v descovered that when you have faith the courage comes itself. In art like in anything else that is unknown sometimes it takes courage to try.
I love harmony and echilibrum becouse it doesn`t exist fine arts without harmony between colour, material and shape.


Poetry of roses

Just because it is spring and I love roses Can you believe that they are made out of xerox paper and they are waterproof? Yes they are… during a sophisticated manufacturing design and some of they are painted with watercolors this is the reason why they have lights and shadows

They are especial only for it`s sensual meaning of feminism

Women are wearing it in their hair or like a brooch…

Enjoy of pictures

Welcome a new friend: Stevie Brown

I graduated from college back in 2009 in which i was studying web design and development, and during that time, i discovered the wonders of Photoshop and what it could really do.

I shied away from the web side of things as the industry was going so fast that i didn’t know what i wanted to do with my qualification, but i had my skills with some Adobe products to fall back on, so i started doing some amateur graphic design.

So from 2009 until present, i’ve been doing graphic designs for products such as t-shirts, mousemats etc but also had the opportunity to create some CD cover designs for bands, logos for web administrators and anything else really that anyone requested.

I do alot of amateur photography also which started in 2010 when i received a Finepix A170 for my birthday. I was so obsessed with it that i had to take photos of anything and everything, and that’s when i realised that photography was something i really loved doing and it became more than a hobby, to me at least. The following year, i was given a Finepix S2950, which was more advanced than my “point and shoot” A170 and this really threw me off as i didn’t know how to control it….i was really downhearted at this stage as examples of works i’ve seen on Redbubble were so outstanding that i really wanted to try and mimic the greatness of what these people were able to achieve.

It wasn’t until recently that i decided to get my act together and learn, and i mean really learn, on how to use my new camera. So far i’ve been following tutorials on how to use DSLR’s (even though mine is a bridge camera but principles are the same) which has opened my eyes and made me realise what i was doing wrong. That, and combined with learning more about Photoshop, i’ve got to the stage where i am today where i’m ready to share with my work with the world, which i do already on Redbubble and Zazzle, but wanting to print and sell off my own stuff which i feel is worthy, but not excellent yet.

Welcome to a new friend: the CITIZENS of FASHION

Being a CITIZEN OF FASHION is all about freedom….freedom of being nobody but yourself, in a society which is doing its best to make you everybody else… freedom of expressing who you are … Whether you prefer punk or a classic look,fashion accommodates the chameleon in all of us.

The CoF(citizens of fashion) it’s a way of celebrating the diversity and variety of the world in which we live. Fashion is about change which is necessary to keep life interesting. It’s also a mirror of sorts on society. It’s a way of measuring a mood that can be useful in many aspects, culturally, socially even psychologically. At the same time, fashion shouldn’t be taken too seriously or you lose the fun of it.

Let’s start to have fun!
