Over the past several months I have tried several different themes in this blog. I am now using Bold Life and I like it.
“Well of course you like it – otherwise you wouldn’t be using it,” I can hear you say.
Well not so. I have tried and kept several themes that I ‘kind of’ liked. I kept them (for a while) for one reason or another. Perhaps they displayed the whole post rather than an extract, or perhaps the color choices were nice (or nice enough).
But here with Bold Life I have found a theme that I like a lot. And what is more, I think it is a theme that I probably wouldn’t have liked a year ago.
Somewhere along the timeline from the first tine I looked at themes until this point in time, I have became more zingy and zany in my preferences.
Where previously, bold colors or quirky layouts would have put me off – they no longer do.
It’s the same with photographs. I was looking at some subtle HDR (high dynamic range) photos earlier this evening and I know, I just know that I would have found them too unatural and over the top a year ago.
But now, I simply see them differently. I have become accustomed to them and and can accept them without thinking anything adverse.
Has your appreciation of website design and of digital photographs changed over time?
