A note about the photos that are part of the header. I am using the same set of photos for www.zaidee-j.com. This site is one I set up for my niece, Zaidee (Potter) Jensen who passed away in August 2012 as a result of a Light Rail Transit accident in Edmonton, Alberta.
All of the images are mine and they represents places and points of time for me. They also represent images that I would have liked Zaidee to have seen or experienced.
The constraints of WordPress makes for an interesting canvas. The aspect ratio is 1000 by 288 pixels or about 4:1. As a result I had to go through my collection to find horizontally orientated images that also had good composition and substance. Hopefully you enjoy them. They are on a random rotation and I plan to keep an eye out for other photo-opportunities that lend themselves to the WordPress canvas.
