created the goofy character at the top of the page?

I'm a professional graphic designer and I think he's quite cute. And cool. He fits the feeling of friendliness I think you're trying to get across with the site. Especially paired with the nice bright colors. Nice job.

Mark, take a bow!

I still get smile looking at the thing.

Now, don't ask me what the sense of the site name PhotoCamel is! I don't know. People just seemed to like the idea.

It came from brainstorming about domain names and then sending a list of suggetions around to friends and family. Kids and my graphic designer niece were all attracted to the "camel" name, so there you have it. I figured I knew less about what was catchy than they did.
