Sepia Saturday 139 : 18 August 2012


A complete change for our Sepia Saturday prompt this week as we leave the Olympics and all things sporting behind us and turn to .... bones! My selected image comes from the collection of war posters from the National Archives of the UK which has been digitised and made available via Wikimedia.UK Why on earth would they need old bones, you may ask; and another poster provides an answer by listing the various uses salvaged bones can be put to : explosives; lubricating oil; fire resistant paint; animal feed; fertiliser; camouflage materials; glue etc. So if you are a themer this week, as well as an old man and a dog you could go for explosives; lubricating oil; fire resistant paint .... etc. Whatever you go with just post your post on or around Saturday 18th August and add a link to the list below.

As usual here is a quick preview of the next two Sepia Saturday archive images :



Now there's something to get you thinking. But for now just shake your bones and get posting for Sepia Saturday 139.

I'm going to be away so I'm in very early but I didn't want to miss another week!

With a dog in the poster prompt, there could only be
one theme for me -
so see Pets on Parade.

Once again I had resist the urge to delve into my music collection this week. For some reason I had 'Bone Digger, Bone Digger' and 'Get these mutts away from me' from Paul Simon's 'You Can call Me Al' going through my head.

Kristin said...

Got done early this week. Several skeleton sketches.

Wendy said...

Bones didn't click with me but I have a great dog story, if I do say so myself (not so much the telling -- but the dog is great!)

Alan Burnett said...

In praise of the Paragon of Annotation and in response to those who saw me and Amy in the prompt image.

Bob Scotney said...

Is it only me but there is no dog that I can see in the main picture?? It appears in the smaller 139 picture at the end.

Mike Brubaker said...

I have got a perfect fit picture for this weekend's theme. Thanks Alan for another super choice.

Kathy said...

Yes - it does seem that the dog has disappeared in the main image. No post from me yet - just commenting on the dog.

Postcardy said...

My theme is calf meal because of your mention of bones in animal feed.

Rosie said...

I went with a cartoon postcard this week. Looking forward to seeing all the great entries this Saturday!!!

C. Foxy said...

Well there is an animal in my post. Hope I made the theme criterion. haha

Karen S. said...

Hello Alan, I had planned on going to the bones, or boneyard, but then I watched a movie called Cupid Inc. and just had to change my entire post! I hope your weekend is exciting !

TICKLEBEAR said...

I've rummaged through the many skeletons in my closet and dug up as many bones as I could find,
from 1961 'till now!!

I dug up some bones but maybe not in the way you expect...

Alan Burnett said...

Whoops sorry about the picture changing - that was not supposed to happen! I will return the proper one as soon as possible (it's that Amy again and the Begging Dog Liberation Front)

Titania said...

No bones, but many dogs;

Prenter said...

Combining the words ‘war, oil, resistant’ I came to the subject of ‘foul-weather gear’

I missed last week because I was away but this week I felt it in my bones that I could find something suitable.

Back after my holidays ... just a short post this week but did manage to stay on theme.

Jana Last said...

A Vintage Postcard showing the "explosively" powerful and beautiful Iguacu Falls.

Bob Scotney said...

Don't blame Amy. Have a whale of a time.

Cartle Postale said...

Bit of a tenuous link with my post about a puppet cat who was a barrow boy...

Wibbo said...

This week I have an old man and a dog with the added bonus of a canary.
