3. Can you post about insert-topic?
If it doesn’t fall between 1900-Present, probably not. Not because I’m not interested, but because there aren’t very many photographs before the Great War. If ask for something that wasn’t a global conflict, and I mean to say something that was a civil war or not internationally covered by news, I’ll say no.
However, if you throw out a military topic between 1900 and 2011, I’ll try to make it happen. Or throw out a specific topic inside a certain conflict (like, POWs in Vietnam or the use of the Higgins boat in WWII) I’ll try and make it happen too.
