These images are all from the Flickr Creative Commons Attribution collection. The "Insights" were inspired by the work of Jill Bolte Taylor in her book -- My Stroke of Genius. For particulars on each image, please check out my photostream. This is a work in progress!!

Making work visually appealing requires lots of public domain and creative commons online resources.
