Take a look at this 1905 photograph (from the collection of the Library of Congress) of the pier and harbour of the English port of Littlehampton. What you see is a tall ship and a remarkably small lighthouse. Or you might want to focus on the high windmill and the squat little tugboat. So if you want a theme for Sepia Saturday 188 (post your posts on or around Saturday 3 August 2013) you could look for photographs that bring together large and small, or big and little. Or, there again, you could focus on the sea, ships, lighthouse, piers or men leaning against bicycles. As ever with Sepia Saturday, the choice is up to you : all we ask for is an old photo and some new thoughts. Once you have published your post, just link it to the list below and try to visit as many of the other participants as possible to see what their approach to the theme is.
But before you do that, have a quick look at what is in store over the next few weeks on Sepia Saturday.
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.
190 : Over the years we have featured all manner of items of dress - hats, boots and most things in between. But now is an opportunity to look at the humble necktie and the smart suspenders (braces).
But such thoughts are for the future. For now all we are asking is for you to post your posts - be they long or short or tall - for Sepia Saturday 188.
