    Good stuff.  Thanks.  Been looking for a new theme.  Was using the fotopholio, and really didn’t like it too much.  (y)

  27.  Actually portfolio WordPress themes is a sleek and sexy but somewhat flawed WordPress theme in making easier to the photographers or designers to create a certain site showcasing their latest work because it look modern and has wonderful typography and large images which would create an attractive looking portfolio site.
