A little while ago I launched this, which I am retaining on the photo blog.
It suits the photo blog and does have many advantages, but I found the default font in posts too pale. Further, it split the side bar material rather too much.
So I decided to go back to earlier manifestations, with some tweaks.
Both restoring the Sydney Boys High 1955 background, both with very clear fonts and good sidebars. I think the plainer one – now – downloads just a bit faster and I do like it. So that may stay.
