Views of the Neighborhood – Time for a New Header Photo

It is that time of year again. I need to replace the header photo and am asking for your help. I have a poll below the photos, and if you would vote for your favorite, it will help me make the selection.

Here are the candidates.

Β 1. Summer afternoon

2. Summer Dawn

3. Tropical Summer Sunrise

4. Summer Morning with Coffee

5. The Jetty and Friend

The winner will be the header next week.


Thank you, all.


  1. My vote’s for number five – jetty and friend πŸ™‚

  2. Wow, I just voted and it looks like your poll (so far) is unanimous!!

    1. I thought Jetty and friend might take it.

  3. You’re welcome, John. πŸ™‚ — Suzanne

    1. Ha haha. Thank you again, Suzanne. πŸ˜€

  4. I like the jetty. Definitely feels like an eye catching change.

    1. Thank you, Charles.

  5. Number 3, Tropical Summer sunrise

    1. Thank you, Kim.

  6. Definitely #5! It speaks volumes about what your blog is about! About what makes it different.

    1. Thank you, Pam. πŸ™‚

    #5 πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, Gwen. πŸ™‚

  8. I voted for #5 for your header, John. That said, #4 is an amazing shot!

    1. Thank you, Jill.

  9. I’d choose #4. It’s a beautiful shot, and so typical of our summertime views.

    1. Thank you, Linda.:-D

  10. I liked #4 too but thought #5 would be a good change for you.

    1. Thank you Jo. I need a change.

  11. Good morning, John. Let’ me explain my choice. I choose #1 as I assume you’ll have to crop it to make it fit the proportions of your header and to my mind this pictures is best suited for that purpose. The others might lose part [or all] of their appeal.
    Have a great Sunday,

    1. Thank you, Pit. I understand your reasoning. πŸ˜€

      1. πŸ™‚

  12. That was a tough decision!

    1. Thank you for your help, Jan

  13. I voted for 3, because i like colors and foreshadowing. It might not be the right shape for your header though. Reminds me, I need to change things up too.

    1. I can make it work but looks like Jetty and Friend is a winner.

      1. I updated my site out of shame. Time for something more seasonal over there.

      2. Well. I think the snow is gone for a while.

  14. Betty and friend

  15. Just wondering … Is the vote the decision or input? Did you consider snacks in 5 different bowls?

    1. Yes it is the decision. The snacks are all corn chips. Just the bowls are different.

  16. Groan… I’m torn between 3and 5… Voted 5, but still not sure. This is a lovely collection, John. Whichever you choose will work wonderfully. Hugs!

    1. Thank you, Teagan. Both are nice.

    Summer morning with coffee has the most amazing clouds!

    1. The song “You’re So Vain,” by Carly Simon inspired the title. Thanks, Jami. πŸ˜€

  18. That was a difficult decision, but it looks like #5 is the winner.

    1. Looks like it. Thanks Teri.

  19. Gee, I like them ALL!!

    1. The Jetty and Friend is the winner. πŸ˜€ (I like them all too.)

  20. It was hard to choose just one. πŸ™‚

    1. I can relate. I liked them all. Thanks, Rhonda.

  21. I know I’m too late, John, but I liked #2 and #5, so it all worked out. πŸ™‚

    1. I think it did, Lauren. πŸ˜€

  22. For some unknown reason I can’t see the poll results so far, but judging by the comments I’m the minority with #2 Summer Dawn. I Love that amethyst morning light, and color.

    All are lovely. I won’t mind being on the losing end to which ever image wins the vote. Looks like it’s the Pelican with a view! πŸ™‚

    1. Number five Jetty and Friend took the vote. Thanks, Deborah.

  23. I see I went with the popular choice, John, number 5. That confirms my belief that people like a focal point in a photograph and not only a landscape. Interesting!

    1. Good point Robbie. Thank you.
