    I'm old, but recently new around here. Let me share a selection of my work.

    I needed to find the simplest (I'm not a computer wiz) and free (I am a cheapskate) photo presentation website.
    What I found was both. It still needs some tweaking. I wish I could control the size of the images, but then it wouldn't have been so easy.

    Feel free to let me know what you think. Please disregard the colour pics except for the parasol, because they are digital captures.

    Nice

    Very nice work. I love it, especially the b&w. And you have found a new use for a Speed Graphic. Leaning on it.

    Thanks, all.

    Rom, yes, I discovered that after, so I have some rearranging to do.

    Completed the rearranging and added a few new pictures. Please take a look and comment.

    I need to get onto my old computer where there are some more scanned pictures. These were all on my ipad.

    Everyone is commenting on your photography, which btw is great, but not much mentioned on the website itself. Maybe they are being polite. Personally I think the template you picked, and I assume it's a canned template being from a build it yourself service, is a poor choice. But then again you get what you pay for. I just don't understand why people spend endless hours perfecting their craft only to trash it with a crappy website.

    Thank you, Eric. If I attempt a more complex site, I will.
    Do you have any suggestions for a better customizable site?

    Just my 2 cents but few months ago i look around to find a way to build my own website.

    I found indexhibit quite nice and good. Here is a demo from one of the participant http://roselecat.com/

    The version 1.0 was free, the authors request some money for the 2.0 but i believe you can mail them and have some discount or at least a gift..

    At least i decided to do not make my own website and just use blogger as a blog/site.
