Photos of the different stages in the leaven building process

I know I have seen detailed instructions on how to make a sourdough/leaven and how to know when it is ready to be fed and used here but,now when I want to find it, I can't.  I have looked under ripe sourdough with pictures....pictures of leaven....and several other attempts but come up with zilch.

 

Anybody know where I can find the pictures so I can compare what I am seeing in my jars and get a better understanding where I am at....

 

Looking for photos to help me know  to feed again....when it is domed or when I can see bubbles coming to the top of my jar or when it is receeding....

 

Thanks 

jc

Thank you Debra and Totels for these links.  The photos of Dan's are the ones I was looking for....I never would have guessed that title though...

Thanks for the northwestsourdough link too.  Her pictures are great.  Look a bit like my book shelf is looking today but no explosions over the top....yet.  My amounts are quite a bit smaller.

Fun stuff.  Lots of new stuff to digest tonight.
