Sepia Saturday 148: 20 October 2012



I have finally made it round to everyone's posts from last week, and I must say, you all exceeded expectations.  I think we learned a great deal about various troops, and soldiers and battles.  Those who drifted from the theme were no less enlightening and entertaining. Thank you all!


I'm posting a bit early again to give us all some extra time.

Here is another Flickr Commons photograph from the National Library of Ireland and I know what you're all thinking ... more UNIFORMS???  Well, yes, sort of, but it's what is going on in this image that really struck me, and there are a few directions one could go with this - say, bikes? Or perhaps, guns (since there appears to be an exchange of one going on here). How about "nosy parkers" in the backgrounds of photographs? What's that term where someone or something usurps a shot? Oh yes! The PHOTOBOMB.  (Google it; you'll have a right laugh!)


Then there's the obvious tack with the Police, or "Coppers" as you Brits like to say.

So, on your bikes, get set ... POST!  (And don't forget to link back here on Friday, so we can all have a gander.)

Incidentally, it has come to my attention that a few of you have issues with posting comments where an Open ID is required.  It would be simpler if comments were set up differently.  In Blogger, go to Layout; choose Settings, Posts and Comments and select "ANYONE".  With this set-up, visitors will have not trouble signing in to share their thoughts.  I know that everyone wishes to reciprocate when others have taken the time to leave a generous comment on their own blog.

To control who DOES visit, select "Always" under the Comment Moderation option, and insert an e-mail where notification for pre-screening can be mailed.

Thank you for your co-operation.

I myself, have made every effort to add your blogs to my sidebar, and would be appreciative of the same for mine.  I would also welcome any new "Followers", if you've found my posts of interest.


Now to next week's business.  Below are the preview photos for the coming two weeks.  No more uniforms!!!

Enjoy!










Make sure you check in on the weekend to keep up with all the current postings from fellow Sepia Saturday participants.  You won't want to miss anyone's interpretation of the photo below:

I am a bit early this week because tomorrow we have other interesting things to do. My contribution is about windows and drama. Hope you like it.
In the meantime I have added the blogs of all members of the SS-club to my blog. So if you miss yours, please let me know! And Kat, I was already a fan of your blog but now I am also a "Follower".

This Week I am "helping the Police with their inquires.."

Bob Scotney said...

I have had to dredge creative commons for picture this week. Made the theme and even got a shot in from near whereI live.

Wendy said...

I seem to be in a war rut. Guns.

Mike Brubaker said...

A nice choice for me as I have helmets to match.

Joy said...

Happily I have a policeman drifting into view.

Kristin said...

'Rocco and Smitty getting tickets from the local policeman for fishing without a license. 1939.

I'm all about the uniforms this week.

Postcardy and I are on the same wave-length this week. My post is entitled: Policewomen - The Early Years.

dawn-in-nz said...

No policeman in my family but plenty of men just standing around ;). I went with an orphan postcard this week. Do you think we could have some girly girl prompts soon please?

whowerethey said...

I ended up with a military police man, recycled at that, but I discovered yet another doppleganger. I might have to change the theme of my blog, hahaha.

My theme is bikes but the highlight is the precursor to Capri pants and/or pedal pushers.

Liz Stratton said...

Guns (or at least the use of them), 2 bikes and a mystery are my take on the theme this week. Can't wait to read what you all came up with!

Life Goes On said...

Mine is a real photo post card of a cute young man in his world war 1 uniform

Karen S. said...

Mine is back to NOLA or New Orleans, but there is a wheel to match the bikes, and there is also a spooky bit to match the man/ghost peeking out of the window! Hope everyone is having a bang up weekend....Alan and his lovely bride and thanks again Kat for being here!

Jana Last said...

My post today is about my Grandparents' and mom's visit to Corcovado in 1952.

Dakota Boo said...

Gret picture this week. I have followed the bike theme.

Deb Gould said...

Rats! I forgot to comment when I posted...I'll get better at that, I promise! Anyway, my policeman is a "Suit!"

Prenter said...

From all options I stick with the first theme: handing out, receiving and watching. This brings me to the Dutch feast of giving and receiving: Sinterklaas//Santa Claus.
