Sepia Saturday 177 : 18 May 2013


These Madrid street kids are upside down, the wrong way up, and all over the place. That's what happens when you place kids next to the slightest excuse for a piece of acrobatic equipment. So for Sepia Saturday 177 - post your posts on or around Saturday 18th May 2013 - we want you to search out your old photos of kids, or acrobats, or people who are upside down or the wrong way around .... or whatever. This 1908 photograph comes from the George Eastman Collection which has been made available by the wonderful Flickr Commons initiative.

But before you start turning somersaults and letting the blood rush to your head, you might want to have a look at what is coming next on Sepia Saturday. Here is our usual peep around the corner of time.



178 : Sepia Saturday faces up to the challenge of featuring the face. It doesn't matter if it is young or old, male or female, black or white .... as long as it is sepia.


179 : In the past on Sepia Saturday we have had cute dogs and cuddly cats, but here is a chance to bring out your birds, beasts and reptiles. Or caravans, or ladders, or ....

All that is in the future. For Sepia Saturday 177 just turn your collection of old photographs upside down and see what emerges.

I have some children playing, but not upside down.

Blogger was acting a little strange and also changed my font size.

Im off topic this time for a change.

Children yes, but mostly the right way up.

In a way this was two easy. But it lets me combine three short stories into one.

Boys, Boys, and more Boys.

No children but upside down in more ways than one.

My post is early this week, but I am determined to play a full part in Sepia this week after a couple of weeks when I have been on the sepia margins. I have a nice picture of .... somebody or other.

Last week when most everyone posted about school, I didn't, but it's school days for me this week.

I came close to passing on this week's prompt, but then suddenly remembered (and managed to find) this photo of my daughter hanging out at the National Railway Museum at York many years ago.
