  1. John,
    You have some fantastic links to great photography sites on your page. This is one I found recently through Lifelounge: Jonathan Mannion http://www.jonathanmannion.com/main.html.
    I’m not sure if you’ve linked to his site before but, as Lifelounge notes, “the world sees hip-hop through his eyes”.
    [Thanks for the link, Dean; I’ll check it out. –J.]
