Update 1/14/12 I am releasing the “sticky” part and letting this flow with the rest of the blog. Looks like they got most of it fixed and the great people at WordPress are working to keep their host up and running.
Update 1/13/12 WordPress just put a fix on the site tonight. I will leave this up until tomorrow to see if it stays fixed or I find any other problems.
Please forgive the posts at the present. I just became aware of a change they made at WordPress.com, which is where this site is hosted. They made a revision to their software and it has knocked many of the photos here out of whack!
I knew I was seeing something weird for the last week or so when I went back to view older posts. Some of my pictures are not centered but off to the right, have letters flowing through them, are hugh, etc. They have been notified, and I have been making changes as I discover them. I am having to change them manually. The problem is that there are over 1,000 pages and over 1,000 posts on this site. Most with more than one photo. Many, many posters on WordPress are being affected. Especially those of us using photos.
To make improvements, sometimes things happen that they didn’t plan on. Be patient, they and I am working on correcting this.
I am not at ease, nor am I quiet; I have no rest, for trouble comes.” (Job 3:26 NKJV)
“Man who is born of woman Is of few days and full of trouble. (Job 14:1 NKJV)
The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, A refuge in times of trouble. (Psalms 9:9 NKJV)
Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, And He delivered them out of their distresses. (Psalms 107:6 NKJV)

PS If anyone finds a post with photo problems, please leave a comment on that post. It will help me get this problem fixed.
On that one the robin picture hangs over the box. I saw the same with your gull post on the sea gull post.
I’ve not seen any, so far, of letters going through the photos. Or any big ones. I hope this all gets fixed for you without having to manually do it all.
Look at this page and tell me what you see.
Also look at this page. This is the last of 13 pages where everyone is writing in to say they have problems with photos.
If you look at stats, I was not on this page for an hour. I was distracted by something.
Your posts and photos have always looked fine to me. I had not noticed any of those issues.
I have photo problems on my own site. WordPress does something to make them look a little grainy/pixelated, even when I shrink them to a size smaller than their maximum allowed for that theme. Not many click on them to see the better image. I know my photos are not that great, but they are not as bad as they look on my blogs.
