If there is one thing that unites us Sepians, it is the love of an image. And to have our constant stream of images we are dependent upon photographers and artists. So this week we are celebrating those who paint with oils or pastels and those who paint with light. Whether they are recording great international events (as with our theme image last week) or the natural beauty of cherry blossom in Washington, our heroes stand out in all weathers, clicking their shutters in order to bring us our daily diet of images. Our picture comes from the Library of Congress stream on Flickr Commons and was suggested as a theme by regular Sepia Saturday participant, Postcardy. There are all sorts of possibilities for the inventive themer : all you have to do is to decide which petal you are going to go with and post your posts on or around Saturday 23 March 2013. Add a link to the Linky List and call and see as many other Sepians as you can conveniently manage.
And if you can manage to look away from your viewfinder for a moment, you might want to have a look at what we have lined up for the next couple of weeks.
170 : Time for a coffee? This particular coffee lounge was a famous meeting place for Australian writers and artists. So that gives you coffee, art, writing, and men leaning against doors as possible directions, not to mention all the adverts in the shop windows.
171 : Marilyn suggested it was time for an ancient monument (could she have been referring to me?) or at least time for a castle. People have always been fond of taking photographs of grand old monuments so you should have one or two in your collections.
Such topics are for the future. For SS 169 let us return to our viewfinders and get our subjects to smile and watch the birdie. Keep very still now .....
