a) i like the blog design update. well done.
b) homeless people have electric wheelchairs? where does she charge it? san francisco continues to impress me.
c) i much prefer the embiggened images, but also want to read the captions, so i end up going thru them all twice. not the worst thing in the world obviously. but perhaps there’s a way to add the captions to the big versions? of course, then i’d miss any in-line non-caption text. hmm. it’s a quandary.

Nik:

c) Good points, Daniel. I’ve thought about that too. If I have captions, I have to have double captions. One for the inline images, and the other for the lightbox. That adds extra work for me. Plus, I want people to read the main blog copy.

I’d consider having larger images overall, but I’d rather have more images and smaller than fewer and larger. I couldn’t do posts with 70 1000px images. That could crash everyone’s browser.

It’s a quandary all right.
