I don't imagine that too many people will be surprised to hear that I'm happier with this shot than I was with yesterday's. It was taken earlier this evening as our two youngest were playing with our living-room curtains. And normally, sitting on the window-sill playing and with the curtains isn't something they'd be applauded for, but in this instance I let them be. Well, for five minutes or so ;-)

Update: Normally, I'm quite happy with the way I can present images on chromasia, particularly as I have the four themes to play with, but on this occasion things didn't look quite right. After thinking about it for a while I realised that the 6px border that I put around my images just didn't work for this shot so I've done another version – same image, but only a one pixel border. I think, for some reason, that the image looks a lot 'brighter' and more delicate as a consequence, but do let me know what you think:

Update #2: I've finally worked out how to override the default CSS (using the Keywords field to drag an extra bit of CSS into the head tag of an individual entry) so have set this entry to have a default border of 1px.

Oh, and in my opinion this one looks best with the white theme.
