I am a firm believer that nothing should get in the way of the images, and I am afraid your website loads so slowly and there are problems with it, so I only looked at a couple images and I was done. Your website might be your baby but it is no one else's. Make it easy for others to use and more people will appreciate the work. I would have been happy to look at everything you have, but I won't wait for it and neither will others. In other words, kill the flash. If the steak is good, it doesn't need to be covered in ketchup.
