Sepia Saturday 127 : 26 May 2012


Our theme image for Sepia Saturday 127 - post your posts on or around Saturday 26 May 2012 - comes from the collection of the National Library of Ireland on Flickr Commons. It was taken, probably in 1910,  by the photographer A H Poole and features the market at Ballybricken Green in Waterford. For those in search of prompts there are prompts-a-plenty : markets, cows, tea and coffee stalls. And of course you don't have to follow any theme, just post a post based on an old image and link to the list below.

As usual, here is a sneak preview of the next two Sepia Saturday call photographs.


But as far as Sepia Saturday 127 is concerned, just grab yourself a tea or coffee and watch your backs, there are some pretty big beasts wandering about

Who’d have thought cows would feature so much in my albums?

I went ahead and scanned that 1937 vintage postcard packet of Reno and Vicinity as a partner post to my first one. Pictures only!

Not the easiest of themes but I found something!

Thanks for the great prompts. For this photograph, I wrote a Triolet. Have a super weekend! ☼

A great inspirational photo. My contribution is on theme I believe, and has a special story for Memorial Day.

This was a beast of a post for me. :)

I've walked through fields of cows on this warm sunny day, well technically it is now yesterday, AND could find some old photos, yippee.

Missed last week, I'm sad to admit, but managed to get one out for this week, which I hope you all enjoy as much as I know I'm going to be absorbed the rest of yours.

Anyone in the "market" for some dental work today?

I'm obviously starting Alzheimer as I can't quite recollect which is a repost and what's not!! And my first comment was a reminder I didn't connect yet to Sepia Saturday... Alan, can't a guy ever go out for a drink, or something? Better make this Sepia Sunday... OMG, it past 2 am... Leave me alone. Just read the damn thing, and enjoy!!!...
It's quite nice, actually...
A glimpse of Montreal, o course...
And don't believe everything you see in the medias. We are still hospitable and charming, even if there are a few protests...
just a few!!

Brubaker's post interests me, but Tony's worries me a tad...
Why is that???
And why do I call Tony, "Tony" and Mike, "Brubaker"?
Perhaps because I feel Tony a tad more intimate. How long has it been now? 3 years??? And he's seen me on my every angles. Well, almost...

Lots of interesting photos this week. Somewhere I have a photo of my great grandmothers tea house but more importantly, this week has reminded me that I need to find time to cook some of the cake and biscuit recipes that she served in the tea house.
