    Great visual design, but I found this really difficult to actually read. There is just too much going on! Scrolling was fun, but the content was secondary to everything else unfortunately..

      White text on black backgrounds and black text on white backgrounds = "To much going on"? Yes there is scroll jacking, but it does not take away from the site. In fact, I think the designers has found a great way to give the primary content (photos) clear focus while keeping the secondary content (the copy) very readable and accessible (great contrast and sizing).

        I'm coming from the standpoint of wanting to read the entire article. You need to scroll tirelessly to do this, so I don't feel it's "usable" overall. If my goal is to read the content, the design of this page makes it difficult to do so.
