shades of grey

February 28, 2010

So here I am playing round with my blog design.  I think for now I am going to go with this “shades-of-grey” look.

Here’s a few reasons:

  • Much as I like the minimal white look that was sparked by Google at the turn of the millennium, just about every trendy new site on the web now has this look. Me, I want to be a bit different to the crowd.
  • I’m a passionate photographer which means that whilst this blog is certainly not intended to be a portfoilio for my photography (see rather my Flickr stream for that), I will be posting pics here from time to time. And personally I prefer pics on a dark background to white. Black is undoubtedly the best, but hopefully dark grey will be cool too.  A lot of my photographic work is done in black and white, so this should work really well here.

But here’s the best part about blogging – nothing is carved in stone. Or printed on paper. So if I grow tired of this grey look, a few keystrokes and it will be gone. And this whole post will be look pretty stupid in its new colour-scheme 🙂
