Update to my Readers

Hello folks, Just a quick update. I’m in the processing of uploading to the portfolio section of this site about 180 images, hence I 180 posts. This whole update will probably take me about 2 weeks.

Cheers. Jorge   PS. Make sure you peruse my new page titled Photography Links, a page dedicated to sharing wonderful photography links of all topics.
