    Hi all!

    The following sentence is the beginning of an article abstract. I know that a propósito can be speaking of... but starting the summary with seems odd.

    A propósito de la colección de fotografías de Lola Falcón (1907-2000), expuesta en la Biblioteca de Santiago,...

    Speaking of :confused: Lola Falcón’s (1907-2000) photography collection exhibited at the Library of Santiago,...

    I want to keep the author's colloquial tone, but don't know if this will work. Any ideas? Thank you!

    You might start it "in regard to." "Speaking of" is fine, but only if you've already just alluded to it.
