RSSPhoto Feature Archives

The Photo Feature was launched on the main page on March 12, 2005 as part of a main page redesign, replacing the quote article.  Images run on the main page with a description as well as the date that they were photographed.  They are run at 350×467 resolution at that location if vertical, and at 600×450 if horizontal.

On this page, images are presented thumbnail-size.  Click the thumbnail image to see the full-size image, which is presented at full resolution, and is available for download.

Featured: February 9, 2009

Photographed: February 9, 2009

Notes: This particular photo feature is a tribute to the Today's Special episode "Hello Friend". The title was written in Blissymbols. The first symbol means "mouth", the next two symbols mean "meeting", the next symbol means "person", the heart indicates feeling, and then the final two symbols mean "good". Thus it's something you say when you meet a person you like. Thus, "Hello, friend." The caption that is shown with this photo is based on the way the episode was introduced: "Today's Special is... gee, I don't know. What do you think?"
