If you have a particular favorite among these, please let the author know (and me too, if you have time). Also, if you've a link to a great post that isn't here, feel free to share.

I’ve been thinking about the format of these ‘Pics of the week’ entries.
At present, I only add a note to a link if it’s not clear from the title what the post is about.

Would you find it more helpful if I gave a brief description for each of them, or are you okay with things as they are?
