Why I'm Obsessed With Abandoned Places

From an early age I had this strange obsession with buildings, and items that had been abandoned by humankind. The more old and overgrown by nature these items were, the more fascinating they became for me. It wasn't until recently that I began to piece the reasoning behind this together. Online searches told me I was not the only one with this 'gothic' obsession, either. It all boils down to four very simple facts. 1. These abandoned things and places represent a very real image of what... continue reading

'Soft' versus 'hard' backgrounds...

Importance of backgrounds cannot be underestimated. They make the impression (first impression is the last impression, you know! :-)), they highlight the text/images, they attract readers, and they create an environment related to the subject.Usually, backgrounds are 'soft' - so that they do not interfere with reading.
