Sepia Saturday 172 : 13 April 2013


It is time to get out your knapsack, pull on your long woolly socks, dig out your sensible shoes, staple a smile to your face, and head for the open road. This week on Sepia Saturday we are off hiking and whether you know where you are going or, like those in this archive photo entitled "Palmer's Mystery Hike No. 2", the destination is not as important as the journey, there is fun to be had. As for those who are in search of a theme, there are walkers, roads, hats, short trousers, and the alarming phenomenon of a woman with three legs. In the great traditions of Sepia Saturday, it doesn't matter what theme you follow, it is the day out which is the enjoyable thing. So plan your days out on or around Saturday 13th April 2013 and add a link to the list below.

For all those people who like to plan ahead, here is a note of the next two Sepia Saturday theme images:


173 : Now this particular photograph is just plain odd. What on earth is going on here I can't begin to imagine. But we all have odd old photographs in our collections and here is your chance to feature them.


174 : There are a number of easy theme possibilities here - newspapers, people sitting down - but those Sepians who like a challenge might like to get behind the headlines.

Well, there we are. My call post is up extra early this week as I am about to head off to Spain for a few days. I am sure that whilst I am there I will be thinking of you all in your walking boots, enjoying the robust Spring (Autumn for those antipodean Sepians) weather as you scale some craggy peak. I, meanwhile, will be sat in some bar soaking up the sun and alcohol in equal measures. Salud!

I'm surprised to be first off the mark this week, as I fit this in along with the A-Z challenge postings. Here it is all about Enjoying Life.

Getting in early as Alan's left me in charge whilst he hikes off to Spain!

I have another village from the Century of Progress. The focus is on people walking around it.

Borrowed my son's pics from his hikes...they are beautiful!

No time this weekend to produce a new post unfortunately, so am recycling one of my older ones which vaguely links to the theme of walking in one's Sunday Best.

Brett Payne said...

Walkies for me too.

Rosie said...

Guess, my focus for this week is people going somewhere in the same direction.

Wendy said...

Walking on familiar ground.

Immediately this weeks photo reminded me of a group of family and friends who were wearing coats.

I'm off-topic this weekend in order to post a followup to a World War One story from last year.

I do have roller-skates!

Karen S. said...

Scotland this week ;o)

I couldn't get my post together in time so I'll just try to visit everyone. :-)

DawnTreader said...

Couldn't find a proper hiking photo, but I went with "destination unknown".

TICKLEBEAR said...

Well, this proved challenging, not visually speaking as I already had pictures for this week, and the two following weeks... but in the redaction of this post. I guess I found too much information and needed to condense it all, but I felt unfocused!! Too much going on possibly and always pressed for time. I hope you enjoy this nonetheless. Typical Montreal, for you all to visit!!

A photo of a march in my Cleage box of photographs sent me on an all day search for information.
