    I don’t know if you are aware that the link to “Email us” does not work (at least for me), but gives a 404 error message. I wanted to send a personal note to Valerie about an early episode of “So You Want to be a Photographer.”

    To Valerie – in an early episode you mentioned the flashcube, well believe it or not I came a cross an article recently that has a picture of that device. If you scroll down a bit you will see it. I am sure I am quite a bit older than you and this was a “standard” for many of my early life photos – A Brief History of the Camera Flash, From Explosive Powder to LED Lights –

    Thanks for the heads up about the email link (we’ll get that fixed). And also the link about the flash cubes. Brings back memories!
