A Glimpse of SWNE Readers - Send in your Preppy Pictures.

 

A reader email:

Dear Ms. Aldrich,

I love reading your posts on Salt Water New England. Your latest post "Old Dog, Old Volvo, Old Norwegian Sweater, Old Girl" was perfect. I love your style.

Have you ever considered allowing your readers to post their own pictures of themselves, old dogs, old Volvos, preppy clothes and the like, just to get a glimpse of who your readers are? It may take your website into a completely different direction than you would want. What you have now works well. Just wanting to know your thoughts.

Thank you.


If you are interested:

Send in a photograph to editor@saltwaternewengland.com.

          In the subject, write "This photograph is approved to publish."

In the body of the email, write "Caption:" and then whatever you would like to have as the caption for your photograph.

As I get them, I will select some of the received photographs and put them up on the site with the exact captions.  (No email addresses).

December 16 is the last day to submit photographs.
