As you can guess, I love photography. But I also love design. I’ve always had an interest for architecture and city design, which is probably why they are frequent photographic subjects. Product and graphic design, yup I like that too. That’s why I often talk so much about the design and feel of cameras just as much as how well they take pictures.
In addition to all the photos and blog posts, I get also into the look of websites, though I’m the first to admit that I really don’t have the chops to truly design websites. I do get really excited though when I see a really beautifully done site. For example, I ran across this blog yesterday that I absolutely love. The simplicity is so soothing.
I’m on a kick to simplify my site where I can. And though it doesn’t have a true minimalist aesthetic, I’ve done small tweaks to reduce clutter. Today, I changed the right side bar. The fonts and layout are more consistent, though arguably it might have lost some character. I’m using HTML tricks to bend this WordPress template to my will (as best I can).
I use the free WordPress.com theme called Modularity Lite. Overtime, I figured out little things to increase consistency and add white space (black space in my case). I know just enough HTML and CSS to be dangerous. Perhaps someday, I’ll pay extra for the Custom CSS option to truly change things up.
