Default Correct Snubbering?????????????

Ok I'm confused.. Can someone pls confirm that I' doing this right.

The attached pic shows my partially completed Snubber. But when I compare it to the next pic of Brian GTs finished snubber it looks like I'm putting in the caps facing the opposite direction. You can see that on my snubber the board is clearly labeled with the + nearest the side of the board with the LED which means the striped side of my cap should be facing toward the LED. But in Brian's PIC it's facing the opposite way. Did Brian change something the board or am I wrong?


Thx:

The stripe on the caps signifies the negative pin, not the positive.
