As the main page blogroll was too fragmented, I’m putting photography and resource links here. Based on some feedback, and because my interests are sometimes varied and narrow sector, I’m putting links here with brief descriptions so you can get what you want, and not what you don’t. A few Google Plus Communities have been included here. I’ll be making additions along the way.
