I already showed some of my moodboards/scrapbooks earlier, but I made new ones and I'll probably continue doing so until I'm unable to use the computer.
The one on the left focusses on ruins, because I love ruins. They are great things in fiction, allowing the writer to do endless flashbacks, let his portagnoist/s be hanuted by spirits form the past, show his or her descriptive style or simply baffle us with knowledge of architecture.
My favourite is probably the one on the top left. It's from India and is called the Daulatabad Fort. I have never been to India, but have admired its architecture for a long time. This particular fort, according to ancient Indian texts, is a mixed fort , Misra durg in Indian. It combines the qualities of Giridurg, a mountain fort, Dev durg, God's fort, and Bhumi durg, a land fort. In short, it was the safest place to be.
I love how every picture has a story, but it would be really boring if I told all of them.
