Individual posts now normally have their own photo taken from one of the ones I (may) have used on the blog post. The main one remains the same. I’ve also added some different ones to the pages. This goes slightly against my policy of consistent corporate identity, but I also think it is more interesting and relevant to have an appropriate pic for each page/post where I can. Hope you enjoy the variety. The recently updated recipe pages all have the same header photo (homemade tomato sauce).

Header Photo 20 May 2012
Given the snarky Spanish attitude re the royal jolly I decided to take down my Romeria pix and put up a nice Gib display of independence. Taken on National Day, 10 September 2011.

After a comment by Iquitoz, I thought a quick extended caption for the header would be in order.
From left to right:
The Royal Marines exercising their Freedom of the City of Gibraltar in March, 2009, read and see more on this post here.
A young Gibraltarian celebrating National Day in The Piazza/John Mackintosh Square, in front of City Hall, 10 September 2011 – more here.
The Royal Navy commemmorating Trafalgar Day in the Trafalgar Cemetery, October 2007 – more here.
So why did I change the header for something totally different? Is there any significance to the photos?
I love photographs of the Rock – as a symbol it is so instantly recognisable and distinctive. But as I write about life in Gib, I thought it would be good to have a change and use some people shots. So here they are, actually a random selection that I thought fitted well together in terms of colours, diversity, and as an after-thought, they are symbolic of history, heritage, and involvement.
I’ll leave this up until I think it’s time for a change, and when I do, I’ll post a note here about the next selection of photos.
