Sepia Saturday 141 : 1 September 2012


Good gracious, it's September already. Time flies doesn't it? You may have noticed that time did indeed fly after I had published the advanced notice of this week's archive photo : it flew from an alarm clock on a table to a wood lined cabin wall. This has little do do with the Special Theory of Relativity and more to do with the fact that I had forgotten I had used that alarm clock image before. So the archive image may have changed but the potential theme has stayed the same : "time and time again" so to speak. My eventual image for SS141 is a 1935 photograph by Berenice Abbott entitled "Country Store Interior, Ewen Avenue, Spuyten Duyvil, Bronx", and it is brought to us via the New York Public Library stream on Flickr Commons. You don't have to follow my thematic interpretation of the image, indeed you don't have to follow a theme at all : just post your old images and your new reflections on or around Saturday 1 September 2012, add a link to the list below, and take the time to visit as many other SS contributors as possible.

You may have noticed that I have updated the side-bar list of regular contributors. This update was based on those contributing last week and I am aware that I may have missed some regulars out, either because they did not join in last week or because I am increasingly incapable of reading my own scribbled notes. If you would like to appear in the list, just let me know and - in no time - you blog-link will appear. And now is the time for me to give you advanced warning of the next two Sepia Saturday thematic images (if you don't want to know, just close your eyes now).


Right, there we go. There remains just enough time for me to ask you to join us all in having a good time at Sepia Saturday 141 on the 1st of September.

Alan Burnett said...

I just found the time to get this up before going away for the weekend, but it will be Monday before I get time to visit all the other posts. So little time, so many times.

Just a study in how time moves on but nothing really changes

Mike Brubaker said...

Time without time, that's always my motto. A post to celebrate Hard Labor Day.

My post is a twist on the theme - time for a home tour.

Peter said...

I am not the mimicking type but possibly I stay close to the Barbara and Nancy interpretation of the theme. Come and see for yourself!
Have a nice Labour Day weekend.

Joy said...

Thanks to Sepia Saturday I discovered I had more virtual clocks than ever imagined, but narrowed it down to two.

Didn't go with a time theme. The look of the room led me in a completely different direction.

Hi You Guys! I have two this week ... the first is a story from a guy who found me through my blog about living simply on Smith River near Tin Pot Valley. The one I took a few liberties and tied in time and kindergarten by scanning an Eloise Wilkins book. Can't wait to see what you all have going!

I haven't participated in Sepia Saturday for quite awhile. Here I am at the tail end of it and looking forward to all of your posts.

Jana Last said...

A little tweak on the theme this week - "timeless" instead of "time and time again."

In, just in the nick of Time :-) Jo

I'm off topic with a lovely smile :o)

I am only just in time this week, abd I bring you something from "another time".

Sheila @ A Postcard a Day said...

I posted on time but forgot the time and didn't visit to leave my link.

I was missing last week and so my sidebar link is missing too.

Teresa Wilson Rogers said...

Here I am finally, late as usually, actually 3 weeks late! Can you add me back to the side-bar participant list? Thanks!

ScotSue said...

A fascinating prompt, so a second short contribution here.

Kristin said...

Not a post about time but about wood burning stoves in my life.
