Hi Flexo.

How about using some of your photographs for your site?

I’ve included some of my money-related photographs in articles in the past. I plan on including more whenever I can find an appropriate place.

Would be great to see more of your pics! I don’t think they have to be necessary relevant to your post, as it can be considered art/decoration.
