Colin: You photos are wonderful. I particularly liked the B/W China and color ones. Well the others are great too. They are all rich, deep and meaningful. I also noticed the slow load although mine wasn't that bad since I'm running about 3-4 MB. When I checked your photos, they are very large for the web. You might be able to reduce the size and never notice since monitors have a lot less pixels horizontally and vertically then you have on each of your photos. Anyway the wait between shots gives one time to enjoy and absorb them even more. Alan.
