There are as many potential ways of matching this theme as there are chairs alongside the lunch counter. All you have to do is to post a post on or around Saturday 12 May 2018 and add a link to the list below. Whilst you are waiting for your lunch to arrive, why not take a look at what is further along the Sepia counter.

Sepia Saturday 417


The trouble with being involved in Sepia Saturday for so long is th at my memory has gone a little sepia. I forgot to put this weeks prompt up before going on holiday and therefore I am. Trying. To do so now with one foot in the Mediterranean Sea and a. Tablet full of sand. It is quite appropriate given this weeks prompt. My limited WiFi signal seems to go in and out with the waves and therefore I will avoid all the normal chitchat- you are well familiar with it by now. Things will return to normal next week.

TRAVEL  :  WAR  :  EVACUATION 

At the moment I am packing my bags ready for departure. Unlike these poor people, I am not heading off to danger and the unknown, simply to the Spanish sun for a week. Without planning them that way, the themes for the next two weekends seem appropriate to me: but your challenge is to tell us how the theme image for Sepia Saturday 416 is appropriate to you. Do so by posting a post featuring an old image from your collection on or around Saturday 28th April 2018 and adding a link to the list below.

I will post the call for next week before I go, but here is a preview for the next couple of weeks.

Now here is an opening gambit: get out your old photos of chess games or canteens or workmen or wooden tables or .... well whatever you want. If you can match our theme image, then you will gain a powerful advantage in the game. Whatever you decide to do, make your move on or around Saturday 21st April 2018 and add a link to the list below.

Whilst your opponent is thinking of his next move, take a look at what lies ahead in this Sepia game of ours.
