Header Notes

Welcome to the Header Notes page.  You can find a caption for the current header shot, as well as captions and links to past ones.  The header itself is a cropped portion of the original shots you will find by clicking the links on this page.  Fascinating how a good or even mediocre picture can be improved by cutting parts out, or cropping.  I suppose a photographer’s goal is to frame it right in the first place.  Please leave comments about the photos or to report links that don’t work at the bottom of this page or send an email to: aschield@thelifeliterary.com.
