Sepia Saturday 38

What is it about old photographs we love so much? It is their ability to transport us back through time. It is the way they offer us an insight into people and places. It is the way we can analyse them, divide them up into invisible squares and ring every last drop of detail out of them. Leslie Ann (Ancestors Live Here) gave us a great example of this latter attribute in her post last week. Her photograph was taken in the house of her grandparents and Leslie Ann took us on a tour of the room and its contents. It was almost like one of those early computerised books where you could click on an object and it would tell you more about it.

Sepia Saturday Week 38 (around and about Saturday 28th August 2010) gives you an opportunity to travel through time, get insights into people and places and analyse to your hearts' content. All you need to do us to put together a post based around an old photograph (it doesn't have to be sepia) and add a link to the list below. Everyone is invited along.

It's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, so think of me being very late for 37 rather than early for 38.

Featuring a photo I've had for many years. A strangely haunting shot of an old house with two young girls. It provides a visual example as to why I call my site Tattered and Lost.

Blogland has enough bugs to drive us all to drink! But I think they've let me post today. Whether they will let me visit others, is an unknown at present! LOL :)

I haven't linked in to SS before but I've often seen Jinksy and Martin(?)'s entries... I thought they actually had to be sepia!

Anyway - this is my mum and dad 50 years ago, aren't they gorgeous?

A bit late for Sepia Saturday 38 but have only just got back from holiday. This week's theme from me is (sepia) storms ... very appropriate today in the UK.
