The Illinois Memorial has a dome similar to the Pantheon in Rome. It's gives you just a little peek at the sky outside.

Very creative skywathing! :)

Regarding your question about posting large photos.
I hope this works for you because we might have different templates.

First you should know that you won't be able to have a sidebar all that stuff will have to go below.

Go into the design tab then click the edit html tab below it. You should see a lot of computer code.

As you scroll down a bit you should see things like "# outer- wrapper, "main wrapper" "sidebar wrapper", all followed by "width" and a number with px after it.

You have to change the numbers to enable your blog to hold larger photos.

Here is what I changed mine to.

1)#outer-wrapper width 1050px
2)#main wrapper width 1050px
3)#sidebar wrapper width 100px

You can change your header wrapper in the same way. Mine is 1060px and it and the blog's body is aligned to the center.

Now you can make your photos larger.
I still use the old system and every time I post a photo I click edit html and change the hight and width usually too 800 or 900px width by 500 to 700px hight unless it's a vertical photo. I also always look for "s400" in the code and change it to "s1600" or the pictures will look terrible.

I hope this helps. Let me know how it works for you.
