Sepia Saturday 128 : 2 June 2012


Let's have a song for a change. Over here in Britain we are having an extra long public holiday to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and there will be street parties, parades and jollification of all types. Who knows, I might have a drink or two and get a little merry and emotional. I might even break into song, and if I do that better song to sing that that old Sophie Tucker number "I Can't Get Enough Of Your Love" (I have drawn a polite veil over its alternative title). The image comes from the collection of the State Library of Queensland, Australia on Flickr Commons and features a rather splendid photograph of Miss Sophie Tucker herself. There are all sorts of places you can go with this archive image, all sorts of themes you could follow. I will leave it all to your collective imaginations. Simply post your posts on or around Saturday 2 June and link them to the Linky-List below. And don't forget, you don't have to follow a theme - you can whistle your own tune if you prefer.

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



So, all you need to do now is to take a deep breath and burst into a sepia song. All together now ....

I love this week's picture! But, I did something completely different this week. My post is very long so I am posting it early ... it is the account of coming over the plains in a covered wagon by a woman who did that very thing it when she was 10.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you guys do with the music prompt.

Okay, this one is just pictures ... the sister post to last week's Reno postcards, it is the postcard packet of Salt Lake City photos from the 1940's.

Also, I added on a few more things to my first post, including copies of a pioneer songbook and a scene of a wagon trail flat tire that I took at the High Desert Museum near Bend OR.

Sophie was born in the Ukraine so she perfectly fits in my preparations for the European Championship Football.

I'm playing "Peek-A-Boo."

I'm early this week, with a "found" photo which is more or less on theme.

The sheet music prompt was ‘instrumental’ in helping me with this piece.

I'm in this week - or rather Uncle Harry is in!

I'm in this week and staying broadly on a music theme with some jazz.

Dames! Don't you just love 'em.

Well as you shall see my psot was a subject that took the greatest hold of me...allowing only this to be told! Alan I hope your Queen's celebrations are just keeping you in jolly spirits! Enjoy the weekend too!

I have brought bitter sweet Lilli-Marlene back; Wars are for all people the worst scenario to experience, where ever they are; the common people are the victims. Those responsible usually sit safely and comfortably, profiting from them.

I've stuck with the theme but put the music time machine control forward.

I'm in with a bang this time -- or, more precisely, a series of loud booms!

I got you a girl!!

Got you a chair!!
Got you a story to go along with it.
Many pics, some are reposts, but little text. That should come as some relief for some...

A theatre postcard from me this week

Sharon said...

I found this one challenging but fun. It was a great opportunity to look through my photos and find a few that could fit the theme :)

Wibbo said...

I'm celebrating this week!

Grandpa and his mandolin.

Linda said...

I missed posting and reading everyone's take on the weekly theme, good to be back. Love Sophie Tucker, actually read her memoir. Tucker had a long career, starting in Vaudeville.

This week my mind was stumped,
I couldn't find my way over that Sepia Saturday hump.

When digging into some old posts,
I found one of a muskrat coat.

You might think this isn't fair,
but even a muskrat hat covers her hair.

"See the pyramids along the Nile, watch the sunrise on a tropic isle,

oops, sorry I was singing, just posted my entry - what fun!

Teresa Wilson Rogers said...

Somehow I linked to last weeks post my mistake so my first entry #28 is incorrect - #30 is the correct one. sorry :-(

Anna said...

Jana at #25's post inspired me to play along this week. I used to play from my old blog, but haven't posted over there in a long time.

Fun theme this week, great image!
