Links to Sites that Inspire Me

Ted Talks;  This site is not a photography site, although they have 58 videos where photography is a core part of the theme. This is the most thoughtful site I know of and of great inspiration to me, photographically and otherwise.

Lenscratch;  This site is all over the place photographically. Aline Smithson must be super human. I don't know how one person can curate so much great content. I come here for inspiration and for reference when I am starting out on a new project.
