Some people enjoy looking for themes in my weekly archive image, some people choose to go their own way. With Sepia Saturday it doesn't matter because it is the image that counts. And the images don't have to be very old and they don't have to be in sepia - the above photograph which shows the furniture store of Leonard Rudolph in Duluth, Minnesota, is neither. I have to confess that until today I had no idea where Duluth was and only a vague concept of where Minnesota was in the great scheme of things. But now I am intimately familiar with a storefront in Duluth at a moment in time in 1956. I have a snapshot of the lives of four people and a visual thesis on the American motor car industry in the mid twentieth century. Make no mistake about it : images are powerful toys to play with.
Share the power of your old images by taking part in Sepia Saturday 65 which will take place on or around Saturday the 12th March 2011.
SEPIA SATURDAY is a weekly meme which encourages bloggers to publish and share old images and photographs. All that is required is for contributors to post an old image (it doesn't have to be in sepia) and provide a few words in explanation. If you could provide a link back to the Sepia Saturday Blog and visit as many of the other contributors as you can, it would also be appreciated. There is no weekly theme, as such, but some people like to use the archive image published with the weekly call as a kind of theme. There is no requirement to adopt such an approach : the choice of image is entirely up to you. Once you have published your Sepia Saturday post, add a link to that post to the Linky List published each week and leave a comment to let everyone know you are joining in.
