Gowalla Style Photo Browser

Photos on websites are awesome, but reloading a page for every picture is a drag. This photo browser uses jQuery to page through photos without refreshing just like Gowalla. If you haven't seen the browser before you can checkout the pictures i've taken on my travels.

If you want to know some more details about how the code works, read howto: make a Gowalla style photo browser.
