My photo blog showcases some of my favourite photos from my collection.

This project experiments with a few of the latest web trends. Under the hood, the website is generated from plain-text files into HTML using Jekyll. The design builds upon the prolific Twitter Bootstrap framework, glued together with Jekyll Bootstrap.

Customisation's appear in the form of a subtle noise-textured background (a current trend), replacing the stock Glyphicons with the awesome Font Awesome and a paginated view. Indeed, other than the photos themselves, no other images are used on the site: the icons use web fonts and the CSS3 @font-face rule.

I contributed back to the community by implementing a Javascript-free sharing provider plugin for Jekyll Bootstrap, a simple Rake task that uses the fleakr gem to generate new blog posts from given flickr URLs and shared the frontend design as a Jekyll Bootstrap compliant theme.
