    My fault. I was fixing the CDN for the images and I broke it. It is fixed now. The images are slow right now because they are not in the cache on KeyCDN's edge servers. I'm currently fixing that.

    Oh shit. 11 seconds? Where are you located? My server is set up in Sydney, Australia and I'm using Key CDN to deliver the images which I thought would help a lot. Any chance you could email me a screenshot of your network waterfall in incognito mode to test the speed of the site and I will try and optimise it. Email: m.blode@gmail.com

    Yeah my intention was to be very bare and minimal in order for the photography to shine through

    I'm happy to share with you the wedding photography portfolio that I designed and developed for my brother. It is also the first site I have built using Craft CMS so please let me know if anything breaks...

    Its seems near impossible to wade through the crap of marketing blogs and ux gurus. As a long time user of designer news it feels like it is falling as the quality of the content that is posted here slips. I feel like sidebar.io is what I should be using for design news as it is curated and selected but there aren't enough posts each day to fuel my news addiction... Hacker News maintains a very high standard of news through their system as opposed to where DN has been heading. Maybe design news was never all that interesting and I'm finally growing up to realise.
