Cox Photography Launch

Gobs of whitespace

I don't have the time, space, or energy to go into all the details. I'm sure you don't want to read all that either. So, here's a quick rundown of the highlights:

Simple design with gobs of whitespace to let the photos speak for themselves.

Unique CSS-based navigation.
A close-up of the navigation area

Nifty implementation of Flash with a custom-built photogallery-type-thing.

Degrades gracefully if Javascript or stylesheet is disabled (thank you unobtrusive Javascript)

99.9% valid XHTML (strict) -- The only thing holding it back is the fact that I chose to embed the flash object within the <noscript> tag. Evidently this is a no-no because the <noscript> only accepts text tags. However, I felt the trade-off was worth the error.
The validator error

It's tested and works well in Firefox, IE6 and Opera with limited almost no bugginess in Safari.

Check out the site, give feedback, and subscribe to the RSS feed.

UPDATE:
I just found out that Charter.net (which serves much of Greenville) has once again dropped the ball. If you use Charter and try to visit Cox Photography you may not see the new site. They seem to have a cached DNS pointer which effectively hides the new site from Charter subscribers. This happened last year when we switched the DNS server for the Swamp Fox. It took about 2 days to figure out that it was Charter's problem and then about 2 weeks and a lot of complaining to get it straightened out with them. I hope it doesn't take a fortnight this time.

I think this one is my favorite current photo.

My favorite two photos on the site are:
Simon and another baby shot. They both crack me up.

On another topic, Safari is beginning to really bug me.

That's a really sharp site. Like you said, it is a great layout to show off the pictures. Photography work looks good and the models look even better.
