What is precious, tattered, torn and handed down? To so many of us Sepians, the answer is photographs - family photographs passed on from generation to generation are the currency of Sepia Saturday. But occasionally other things are handed down - and in so many cases it is the family bible that becomes the linchpin of family history. So for Sepia Saturday 187 (post your posts on or around Saturday 27 July 2013) we focus our attention on family bibles. But in the best traditions of Sepia Saturday themes, you can interpret the theme in any way you want : books, lettering, printing, hand-me-downs ... they all fall within our theme this week. Our theme image was specially created from a collage of family bible pictures provided by seasoned Sepians Kathy and Martha and stitched together by Marilyn.
But before you start your bible studies, here is a quick preview of what is in store for Sepia Saturday for the next couple of weeks.
188 : A tall ship, a small lighthouse, and a windmill feature in this 1900-ish photograph of Littlehampton. But there are also cycles, ladies with hats and men with caps.
189 : This picture is entitled "What an amazing contraption!". For SS189 we are asking you to feature pictures of amazing contraptions of all sorts, shapes and sizes. Interpret this as you like.
But for now let us concentrate on Sepia Saturday 187. So open your books and start at the beginning.
