I've noticed some bloggers have wonderfully large photos on their blogs and I've wondered how to do it. Susan, from Between Naps on the Porch, gave some ideas, and I'm trying them out. So far I've had no luck, but I'll keep trying.
Meanwhile, for experimenting, since my daughter has my camera on her camping/spelunking trip, I chose this photo from my trip to Europe in June - a stone cottage in Switzerland. I love the textures and the durability of it.
edited to add - Yay! I figured it out. Thanks, Susan! Now I have to figure out my header/banner at the top.
