Backgrounds for Text

Some old habits just keep reappearing and are the explanation for why I occasionally make pictures like these.  When I use to make travel videos I always tried to capture images that I could use for backgrounds on title pages.  It was a good idea then, and still is if you are making videos or presentations with title slides or text.  It helps to leave either a clean area or have a uniform texture to be used in the backgrounds.  On slides with images like the leaves, I would usually lighten them up and use a contrasting color for overlaid text.
