Where Law and Photography Meet!
We're familiar with the Q&A Columns in magazines and online, but in our line of endeavor we know there aren't always answers, only Expert Direction.
So Shades is launching a Q&E column and we've lined up some of those "in the know" to point us in the Expert Direction.
Do you have a question about a family photograph or a photograph in your collection? Send an email to Shades, attach the photo, and we'll find the Expert with the Direction.
Shades will contact you by e-mail if your question is chosen. If chosen, Shades may publish the picture and the Expert Direction in this digital publication.
The Way It Was will be a series of posts on life as it was When! Starting next week Shades will host an article about Visiting Cards. In a recent challenge by Denise Levenick, The Family Curator and a Shades Friday From The Collector, lost treasure was discovered relating to the Victorian custom of visiting cards. Shades will launch a series of articles to show and explain this example of life, "The Way It Was."
And so it begins! Shades hopes you will enjoy the changes and challenges with us in the coming months.
