I don't know about you, but I am still a little worse for wear following a prolonged spell of seasonal over-indulgence. I have had too many encounters with flagons of alcohol, held up too many bottles of beer in mock celebration of the New Year, and heard the drone of bagpipes for far too long. I want to leave this all-too-merry feeling behind and launch a sober mood here on Sepia Saturday in keeping with the season of resolutions and reflections. With this in mind, here is your archive theme image for Sepia Saturday 158 - post your posts on or around Saturday 5th January 2013.
Our picture dates from 1915 and shows Scottish soldiers at the entrance to their hut on the Western Front. There are plenty of potential themes for you to get your teeth into here, but just in case you are crawling away with a sore head in search of a little peace and solitude, I will remind you that you don't have to be "on theme" at all, just an old photograph and some new reflections. After posting your post just add a link to the list below.
As usual, here is a preview of the next two Sepia Saturday theme images:
159 12 January : We may be in the middle of winter here in the Northern hemisphere, but Sepia Saturday is a global phenomenon. So it is time to get those bathing costumes out and take to the seaside sands.
160 19 January : There are all sorts of potential themes here : pictures without a subject, left and right, old trucks.
Those a just a few thoughts to get you started, as always with Sepia Saturday there is no Sat Nav telling you where to go. But that is for the future; for Sepia Saturday 158 let us have a final celebration before the depths of Winter surround us (except for those in the Southern Hemisphere who can have a final celebration of high summer)
