Yes, I've read it and you are talking about setting up a blog with a photo gallery, so I fail to see the "quick portfolio". I'm surprised I'm the first one to mention anything because portfolio sites like this usually get the "keep it simple, open on your best piece" comments here.

I'm also going to agree with you. I definitely wouldn't treat anyone's site seriously who had this type of treatment. It's ok for the trendy people who want something quick and simple, but as far as the best way to present something, I find it poor. I'd prefer to look at a directory listing of jpegs.
To expound: Blog type websites are good for incremental updates. However 99.9% of portfolio sites are not checked incrementally. Someone visits one time, and wants to browse all content. Having long lists of posted images is not a good way to do this. There is a reason almost every single site offering a large amount of images uses thumbnails. *hint* it's not because they were waiting for Web 2.0 to be invented.
I don't understand how this is any easier than making a simple html page with small thumbnails linked to larger images. That would not only be easier to navigate, it'd have less garbage to visually sift through.
