Looks fine to me (Safari 4 beta) - all photos are the same distance  
apart, except where blurb extends below the photo bottom, pushing the  
next one down a bit.

A thought though - if you're thinking of tables, presumably you don't  
want the text to wrap under the image? In which case, this technique:
(particularly the left outset images) may be useful.
