Pruned v1.7
Derek Jarman

A new month, a new layout (i.e., back to 3 columns again), and of course, a view from Derek Jarman's marvelous seaside garden towards the Dungeness Nuclear Power Station and its twin atomic reactors, picturesquely sited as the main focus of interest in this composed pastoral scene.

Let me know if anything's amiss with the layout.

(And yes, we are now referring to ourselves in the singular again. “Hello me!” “Hello myself!” “How's me been all this time?”)

  • this is just wonderful, so many photos - I love Jarman's garden and that he painted that great Donne poem on the wall and the book about it is wonderful too. Such gardens with implemented stuff from the beach are the best, i wish there were more.
    - and the blog looks great.

  • Selon moi,

    the two columns on the right share an odd relationship, and negatively marginalize the primary content. although we english ppl read left to right, I think webpages read better with centred content. I prefer yestermonths layout.

  • Hey James,

    I worried about that. The right sidebar, left empty for individual posts, looks very odd indeed and makes it look like your browser had encountered an error during the rendering process. And sometimes my body wants to lean to the right just looking at it.

    Anyway, I left it empty (perhaps only for now), because having that long list of posts would lengthen the page considerably, so that in some pages, for instance, you would have this short primary content and then a seemingly bottomless sidebar.

    Moreover, having all those titles might confuse search engines when they try to index them. In other words, they might have trouble figuring out which key works to priorotize.

    So unless I figure out how to direct web crawlers which part of the page to index (if that is even doable), the right sidebar stays empty, our blog version of the abyss.

    ...and embedded within is a 1x1-pixel white image linked to greatest landscape ever imagined or created.
