Header images

A few of you asked for more information on the headers. They’re all from photos I’ve taken around the borough. Here are the details.

I will retire headers from time to time, but I’ll keep them here for posterity.

(Links take you to the recap of the trip; those taken “on my own time” do not have a link.)

  1. I really like your idea to give the eye-catching banners their own page.
