Header Photos


These are the various pictures and photos I've used over the last eighteen months of the blog just for the heading. I try and change them seasonally - it keeps the blog 'fresh' and it keeps me amused! Hope you like them. They're not in any particular order. The photograph above is of the Jubilee Pool Penzance, taken by me on the 4th July 2011.

Liz- THANK YOU! Glad to see the ones that I missed as well as all the attributes. I never would have guessed "Flora" to be a Rembrandt, and I will now have to look up the link you posted to the Jubilee Pool.

And to think you get to see this view every day!
