some updates to the site

I have been working on streamlining my site to a certain degree in order to present my work to its best advantage on the internet. The gallery format is of particular interest to me: the “slideshows” are quite elegant and give each photo room to breath but the “thumbnail” galleries present a complete series all at once which also has its own appeal. I have decided to have the best of both worlds and use both formats! For my “Recent” and “B&W” galleries I will be using the slideshow and for the remaining galleries, thumbnails. The main reason for this choice is that the two slideshow galleries will be changing more often and I would like the images to be showcased individually rather than as a group; this way they can be better viewed one at a time at a slightly larger scale without having to leave the main gallery page.
