Vintage exposures from pre-war Poland, with scratchy “Summertime” on the soundtrack. (Slightly improper for libraries & children under the age of 15)

Pretty.

But for those that hate that stuff, beware that it will resize your browser window.

Anybody else notice that you can tear the whole pages off?

Nice. I wish he didn't use the tired Flash page-flip navigation, but still good. The title, if anyone's curious, translates to "My grandfather's girls", or something similar.

Wonderful post, growabrain. I think that the presentation and the music greatly add to the overall effect. They invite one to slow down and take time to enjoy these photos.

Gorgeous!

The last photo disturbs me a bit; I've always been unsettled with breasts just peeking over a top rather than being freely exposed.

The world's most annoying navigation

I bookmarked this as "inadvertent but irrefutable condemnation of Flash for image presentation."

"The tired Flash page-flip navigation", "Worst. Interface. Ever.", "The world's most annoying navigation", "inadvertent but irrefutable condemnation of Flash for image presentation."

WTF? A couple months back there was an article about the no-tech notebooks from Moleskine, and everyone was gushing about how gorgeous they are, and how tactile, and so on. Now someone uses Flash to approximate the metaphor and suddenly it's tired and the WORST.INTERFACE.EVAR?

I thought the interface was beautiful, and beautifully appropriate - without it, what have you got but a bunch of old photos of partly nekkid chicks?

I so dubbed it because it takes me about 25-30 seconds of mouse wrangling to get from one "page" to the next - I highly reccomend the site to anyone who needs to be sympathetic to someone who's never used a mouse before.
