[cc-community] How to say "here be CC-licensed content"?

I'm working on a couple of websites that contain some original photographs
that I wish to release under a CC license. Each photograph has its own
page, so it's easy enough to use the code generated by CC's license wizard
to indicate that a specific photo is CC-licensed.
However, I also want other pages - homepage, indexes etc - on the site to
call attention to the fact that there is CC-licensed content available on
the site (the site itself and the text it contains, is not CC licensed;
only the photos). The specific page that the user is looking at may not
contain any CC-licensed content, and I don't to imply that the whole site
is licensed - but I do want to say "Hey, some of the stuff you'll see on
these pages is CC-licensed". Is there an approved way to do this?
If this is all too abstract, one site-in-development can be seen at
http://dev.disoriented.net/. An example of an individual photo page can be
seen at http://dev.disoriented.net/photo/2008/01/Orchha/2 . That photo
page should contain the HTML snippet that licenses the specific image on
that page; the other pages should contain something to let people know
that the site in general is CC-friendly.
Any suggestions or recommendations?
