Only two days ago, we asked our readers for help in finding a new title photo (see Help Barbados Free Press Find A New Title Photo). In those two days, we have received 127 photos (!) from our readers, including almost 80 from one good BFP friend.
We are truly overwhelmed.
Some folks read the article, grabbed their digital camera and stepped outside for a couple of shots. Others scanned old photographs or found photos on the web and forwarded the images or the URLs.
One of our readers sent us the above photo that they took while out for a walk. It is titled simply “Barbados Beach”. Just have a look at that photo – the sky, the colours of the sea. We were sent dozens of photos like that one.
God, I truly do love Barbados, and I give thanks for every day you give me in this place with family and friends.
As well as photos, we also received the above PhotoShop creation from our friends* who run the Classimax Advertising portal. We’ll let our friend* describe it…
“… from the left is Shona… hahahah… then your fishing boat that wanna always talking bout, a printing press, a watermark of Bussa to show freedom of the press and then a beautiful beach of Barbados…”
Thanks Classimax! We love it, and we love the thought and the elements that you’ve put into it – so we’re going to use it as our “home” title bar. (Shona says the face is bang on, but the hair is a little off! 😉 )
BFP’s Title Photo Will Change From Time To Time
Last night all the folks who make up Barbados Free Press decided that we will cycle through various photos in our header for the next little while. We don’t know if this will happen with any regularity, or if our readers will just be surprised every so often when they visit. If variety is the spice of life (except when it comes to women of course, my love) then we intend to spice this place up a bit.
Hope you like it!
Marcus with Shona, Robert, Cliverton & Auntie Moses
* Regarding our Classimax “Friends*”
Just a note in case someone in the government gets a bit in their teeth… we use the term “friend” in the most general sense as in “online friend”. To our knowledge nobody from BFP has ever met anyone from Classimax, and, other than what we see online, we haven’t a clue who they are. They certainly don’t know anything about who forms Barbados Free Press.
A shame that we have to put that on the record, but that’s life in Barbados.
Special Note To Classimax
We love what you’ve done and we’re going to run with it. Thanks so much. And…
… any chance of modifying the header to remove the cartoon character and maybe putting in a few real smiling Bajan faces? I know when we get into displaying faces on the header, we enter a whole new arena, but maybe you have a way around that?
Thanks, and if it is not possible, no problem. We appreciate what you’ve already done for us.
