Sepia Saturday Week 34

In her Sepia Saturday contribution last week, Cheri Daniels (Journeys Past) wrote about how pleased she was that the "less than perfect" compilation of shots of her father as a young baby was not thrown away. The resulting picture let us see " the developing and fading of tears, and the work it took just to get this busy little guy to sit still!" I so agree with Cheri. We get used to seeing perfectly posed and perfectly focused vintage photographs : the ones that were saved and framed and treasured. But so often it is the technically less than perfect shots that capture reality - show life as it really was.


Sepia Saturday will be open again this week - Sepia Saturday 34 July 31st 2010 - and everyone is invited to participate. Just post an old photograph and tell us what it means. Add a link to your post on the list below and include a link back to the Sepia Saturday blog. Good shots, bad shots, sharp shots, soft shots - show them to the world with Sepia Saturday.

Only a picture from me, as I know very little about Grandpa Jinks, beyond the fact he was in the army, and died before I was born. But it's an unusual photo!

As usual, by the time I get around to posting it's already night or evening for others. My post links back to a previous post called Brothers in Arms. A continuing exploration of the Big Bag of Negs.

Saw this on Ashley's blog, and the Scottish Wedding I saw I thought would look good in Sepia so have joined in and hope that is ok?! A nice idea to do sepia as they are lovely.

This entertained me for awhile this afternoon when I was feeling out of sorts and bored! Jerry is downstairs watching Nascar which I cannot stand, so I could not go down there to finish sewing a pillow I am making or to use the big computer. Laptop upstairs to the rescue and it was a perfect time to browse all the Sepia's this week. Thanks for keeping me entertained and occupied and out of trouble! :)

Looking for help in identifying Grandpa's Polish friend, but I can't read his writing. All assistance gratefully received - many thanks :-)
