"I think that I shall never see, A poem as lovely as a tree". This splendid photograph of a tree was taken in 1910 by Huron H Smith and forms part of the digital collection of the Field Museum in Chicago which has been made available via the Flickr Commons Project. The title given to this glass negative by the photographer was "A Poet's Tree" as it pictures the actual oak tree in Glynn County, Georgia, under which the poet Sidney Lanier wrote the poem "The Marshes of Glynn". For people who like a theme for their Sepia Saturday contributions, a tree would seem a suitable starting point. Whatever you post, post it on or around Saturday 20th August 2011. I am looking forward to seeing the various contributions because: "I think I will probably see, a post as lovely as a tree".
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.
