Out theme image for Sepia Saturday 165 comes from the Flickr Commons collection of the Australian National Maritime Museum and is entitled "Group Portrait of an Unknown Family". All lovers of old photographs are familiar with unknown people, unknown families and unknown places, we all have them in our collection, and Sepia Saturday 165 provides an opportunity to give them their moment in the limelight, not because of who they are but because of who they may be. Just post your post on or around the 23rd February 2013, add a link to your post on the Linky List and don't forget to try and visit as many other Sepians as you can fit in.
And here is our preview of the next two Sepia Saturday theme images :
166 : 2 March 2013 : A photograph of a worker making paper boxes. You might want to go with workers, machines, paper or boxes ... or with whatever you can find in the picture.
167 : 9 March 2013 : Nominated by Sepian Kathy Matthews, this photograph might want to make you take a paddle steamer down a river ... or interpret the writing on the photograph itself.
Please note that the theme image for SS167 was nominated by regular Sepian, Kathy Matthews. I would welcome suggestions for future image prompts from all Sepians, but remember, our prompts are images rather than subjects. Just send me a link to a suitable image : the only qualifications are that it should be copyright-free (either your own image or from one of the on-line copyright-free collections listed on our Facebook Group page and large enough to make a suitable web image (800 x 600 pixels or more). Let me have your suggestions either as comments on this blog or via our Facebook Group.
Enough of all that : let us now turn our attentions to those we don't know. Who knows, someone out there might recognise them.
