Playing with Lightbox

On one of my photo web sites I have been playing with a cool little bit of Javascript called Lightbox. It basically lets you popup photos directly overlaid on the web page that they're linked from. It's great for linking to photos from pages without having to bring up a popup or load them into an empty page.

I've now implemented it here, and as a demo, to the right is a photo that I took a week ago in Utrecht. Click on the thumbnail to see how it works, then click again to close. Very cool eh?! Like half the internet, I'm going to start using this here whenever it'd be useful.
