Pictures textures, patterns

 

The textures shown in these pictures are from a wide variety of objects and have nothing to do with textures in the sense of the surfaces of textiles. They include rusty metal, concrete paving, wood chippings, wall cladding, rendered walls, metal profiles, wooden fencing and even the mesh of netting. Although all quite different and not designed to be particularly pleasing, they have one element in common: they form a pattern, which the Oxford dictionary defines as β€œan arrangement or sequence regularly found in comparable objects or events.” Perhaps in this case it should be described as elements which repeat themselves with some regularity on the surface of any material.

Whatever the description, a textured or patterned surface is pleasing to the eye – a blank surface is totally boring and one of the reasons why wallpaper was invented.
