Since the Web has totally destroyed my attention span, instead of making a header and sticking with it, I'll be rotating designs that use photos from YouShoot, the Reader's interactive photo feature (and, perhaps, found art and errata from around the Web, if it strikes my fancy).

The current picture is by Jim Walker; in just a couple years, the flood of Millennium Park pictures has made it well-nigh impossible to take a non-cliched picture that captures the spirit of the park. That's why I love this shot--Walker captures the abstract beauty of Gehry's bandshell with his focus on detail and tone, removing it from its context and treating it as a work in itself.
