    i like the sand patterns caused by the water.
    while u r working on formatting, can u set it up to add a brief description abt the pic .. where it was taken n stuff?

    a. Rats! You ruined the surprise for one of the later pictures. :) I admit, one of the much later pictures will be a closeup of the patterns on the sand caused by the water.

    b. I don’t have a problem with adding notes to images. Just, how do I incorporate them into the page without sacrificing on the spartan-mostly-text-free look? Initially there was some discussion on even removing the titles and those buttons — you know, under the pretext of too much text detracts from the picture.

    If you have any ideas I’d be happy to hear them.

    I’ve just got a version of this layout you posted on the WP forums working with v1.5. I now have it displaying EXIF data and notes in the popup box. Do you want a copy? – it needs a couple of plugins to run.

    Cool, it’s nice to hear someone else is experimenting/using/improving it.

    And sure, that sounds like a good thing to have. I can backport it to 1.2 (or move this over to 1.5, it doesn’t matter) and check it out. As you have noticed, this isn’t much more than a theme.

    I was thinking of implementing something along the lines of the note popping up when you move your pointer over the picture (as in fill the image “title tag” with more information than just the name). This way I presumed I couldn’t ramble on, and would stick to a short sentence.

    cool! delaying posting it even more ’coz i broke the surprize?

  6. pundit says:

    Yes, that is the plan.

    And, this was taken at St. Andrews, the home of golf.
