On my photography website, BuYousef.com, I don’t write anything to accompany the images.  I choose my favourites from here and post them into themed galleries. Until recently I converted all images to black-and-white, maintaining a very simple and minimalist look and feel.  I liked the simplicity – but colour had to come back. I’ve just finished the redesign of the page, where I removed all the galleries (all the images are visible without a need to search),  there are no distractions (with contact information and links on the top instead of on the side) and colour is everywhere via the square thumbnails.

The end result will be a portfolio of my favourite 100-or-so shots, without distractions nor text.  I even reduced the file sizes to speed up image loading.  I’m still adding/removing images and will hopefully find equilibrium some time next week.  After that it will be a case of new pushes out old…

Your comments and suggestions are, as always, appreciated and welcome.

I’m not experienced in designing websites, nor am I fluent in html.  A few years ago, I had a website which I designed using Microsoft Publisher but I didn’t like the tedious work involved in uploading the files.  Whether it’s because things in general have advanced, or in fact that the Mac world has always been more friendly, using iWeb is a completely different story.  I can update a website’s content literally with a press of a button.
