Our theme prompt for Sepia Saturday 192 features a wonderful 1947 portrait of the jazz musician Stan Kenton by the noted photographer William P Gottlieb. The photograph forms part of the Flickr Commons collection of the Library of Congress - indeed if you are a lover of classic jazz photographs there is an entire Flickr stream dedicated to Gottlieb's work. That is Kenton in the middle of this trio, dressed in typical 1940s style with his striped trousers held high with the obligatory suspenders (or as we call them here in Europe, braces). So there is your first possible direction of travel, but you may also choose to go with neckties, jazz, men sat down or ... anything you want to. Your choice of subject can be as free and innovative as the best of Kenton's music: all we require is for you to post your post on or around Saturday 31 August 2013 and then link it to the list below.
But before you start to orchestrate your submission for Sepia Saturday 192, you might like to look ahead and see what is in prospect for the next couple of Saturdays.
193 : Girl in a rowing boat in the middle of nowhere. So there are four potential themes for starters : girl, boat, middle and nowhere.
194 : Here is a woman making an American flag which might point you in the direction of flags, sewing, books or even chandeliers.
But that is all for the future. Now it is time to brace yourself and get ready to tie yourself down to this weeks' post.
