    Could Petra be any more perfect? That first image enticed me at first pixel.

    It would be waay cooler if it was possible to make the pictures in photo galleries like these change just by clicking on them, because I always have to scroll up to hit the arrows and then scroll back down to see the whole picture and I’m lazy and whiny today so I thought I’d suggest that :)

    Otherwise, this is awesome and I love Petra’s use of color!

    • hellorose July 27th, 2013 3:39 PM

      i was about to say the same thing! maybe having the arrows on either side instead?
