Publications and Sections
So I just launched a new publication. ALFEW.
This is to be a virtual art display publications and having different sections is important so that different types of art can be featured in different sections. Great idea, right?
So I launch into setting this publication up, just yesterday (March 2). I get all the sections set up the way I want them, then I notice that Medium is offering a beta trial (opt in) of new page design. They say that you will be able to opt out at any time. I opt in.

Unfortunately my garden gear would not fit in the one I REALLY want (Mustang).
These are some of the shots I took at a September 2008 classic car meet in Mississauga.
I will include the year of the car where I know it. If anyone reading this sees a car and knows the year, let me know, and I will add that info to the photo.
