When you use a theme or a template, you have three options. You can get a theme or template that you would use just as is. You may also get a configurable and customizable theme which you can work on and come up with your unique elements. In some cases, the two options are not the best choices. You may need a blank WordPress theme.
With many people, it so happens that they begin to associate a theme or template with the particular images or content that has been presented. The context becomes inseparable from the theme. It is quite possible that the theme or template would only be great in that context and when you try to customize it or configure in your own way and in your own context, the whole thing becomes rather odd.
