Sepia Saturday 488 : 21 September 2019


Read all about it. Whilst you are reading this I will be all at sea and there is a possibility that when I look out of my cabin window I might see some Turkish trophies. Wherever I happen to be, I have a feeling that I am not going to be able to avoid the news from home. You can help create the news by looking through your old photographs in search of one that might match this theme. When you find one, includes it in a post, and post your post on or around Saturday 21 September 2019. When you have done that, add a link to the list below.

Once you have posted your post and read all the news, take a look at what awaits you next week.

Sepia Saturday 487 : 14 September 2019


I have always wanted a well-behaved dog. I remember my father telling me that the basis of dog obedience is that the dog in question recognises who is master. All my dogs have quickly recognised this, which has made them as obedient as a fractious ferret. So whilst my dog chews up another of my socks I am inviting you to submit your old photos for Sepia Saturday 487. Post your posts on or around Saturday 14 September 2019 and add a link to the list below.

My dog is about to take me for a walk - whilst I am gone, you might want to look at what is around the Sepia Saturday corner.

Sepia Saturday 486 : 7 September 2019


Eager faces lined with concentration and anxious to study and learn - it reminds me of my own schooldays! Well perhaps not. Our Sepia Saturday theme image this week takes us back into the classroom to witness what happens when elements - such as old photos and new memories - come together. Whatever kind of reaction this causes in you - record it in a blog post, and post the post on or around Saturday 7th September 2019. Once you have posted, add a link to the list below.

Whilst you are waiting for the various chemicals to mix together, take a look at what is around the Sepia corner.

This is the second basket that has appeared as a Sepia Saturday prompt in less than a month! Am I becoming a bit of a basket case? More than likely. Basket case or not, you are invited to think of which of your old photographs may match - or even unmatched - this Sepia Saturday prompt and include it in a post. Post the post, on or around Saturday 31st August 2019 and include a link to it in the list below.

The theme prompts for September are finished and are as follows. And look how close we are getting to Sepia Saturday 500!

Sepia Saturday 484 : 24 August 2019


I think I need a major upgrade to my engine. My cylinders aren't firing, my carburettor is all clogged up, and my radiator needs a rest - and I keep forgetting to put the Sepia Saturday call up on time. I may be a bit of an old crock, but better late than never, here is the theme image for this week's Sepia Saturday. All you have to do is to find one of your old photos that may - or may not - be a match for this theme image, and post it to your Blog on or around Saturday 24th August 2019, and add a link to the list below.

Here is the next theme image - I will post the next batch of theme images within the next few days.

Sepia Saturday 483 : 17 August 2019


I stand before you (well, actually, I am sitting down) a trifle shy - and very apologetic. Once again I am a trifle late in putting the Sepia Saturday prompt on line and my excuses are about as insubstantial as a faded photographic image. So insubstantial that I will not bore you with them, but they involve a balcony, a spent lightbulb and the remains of a bag of cement. Bundling all such cares in a wicker basket, let us move own to this week's Sepia Saturday prompt. As always, all you have to do is to post one of your old photographs, which in some convoluted way is linked to the theme image, on or around Saturday 17th August 2019, and add a link to the list below.

And here is a quick preview of the next two prompts.

Sepia Saturday 482 : Saturday 10th August 2019


Three powerful women. Women who changed the world, women who made society sit up and take notice. The three women featured in this early twentieth century image were leaders of the movement for female emancipation. This week on Sepia Saturday is your opportunity to feature the strong, powerful principled women in your family photographic collections. as with all our Sepia Saturday themes, you can follow any other element of the prompt image you care to choose - who just ignore the prompt and post an image of your choice. Post it on or around Saturday 10th August 2019 and then add a link to the list below.

And whilst you are rekindling your special powers, why not take a look at what is around the corner on Sepia Saturday.
