I was disappointed by the article - some of the sites look great in person, but the Smashing article managed to pick out too many stylish-designery-aren't-we-cool pics (with a high percentage of beautiful women involved) - I'm jaded with all that, never was a fan of it particularly, but it's all just so 'let's make this a perfect make-believe world (where we're especially cool)
' that doesnt have much to do with reality
maybe that's the point of that direction/style - distraction from reality or something? More like delusion I think - I'll shut up now..
I did get to see some great pics once I went to some of the sites so thanks Zaine
Big Picture rocks!
