Hi there everyone.

I started a blog today, for the first time. I obviously don't know what I'm doing, but I spent the day trying to make it look cool.

I have had a camera for 4 months now, and enjoy taking photos, so critique on my pictures would be really nice too.

Please check it out, and give me some feedback, because I would like to post it around when its ready.

Nice shots, but the background is very distracting, especially while scrolling. It gives the illusion that the screen is being pinched

Backgrounds on websites were awesome in 1996.

Cute pictures but the scrolling is definitely creating problems with the background. I would suggest simplicity is the key.

I've always looked at a blog as a place to write.

You have some really great shots on your blog. I always like black backgrounds to make the photos really stand out. Gotta be honest though - I don't like the Saint Francis image - if I were to click onto your site I wouldn't look any further - too religious but thats just IMHO
Cheers

Its not really meant to be religious, My middle name is Francis, and so it was meant to be a type of medieval type of theme.

Hey okes,

I started this post in Dec 2010, it's now June 2014 and I have a new website. haha

Though it would be a cool blast from the past to repost my new website.
