Sepia Saturday 202 : 9 November 2013


Huge apologies for setting a new world record for the lateness of putting up the Sepia Saturday Call. I would love to be able to say that this was the result of becoming so involved in the editing of "The Best Of Sepia Saturday", that I have lost track of time : but I can't. It was a toxic cocktail of domestic chores and November lethargy which brought about a coagulation of the Sepia Saturday process. But fear not, I have prescribed myself some Sepia Warfarin in order to restart the creative flow and thus here - a little late but nevertheless peculiar - is our prompt for Sepia Saturday 202 (Post your posts on or around Saturday 9th November 2013).  Our prompt image comes from the Flickr Commons collection of the National Media Museum and features a beach photographer, a woman, and Felix the Cat! (who say's I never give you plenty of theme options?). As usual, post your post and then link it to the Linky List below.

Before I sink back under the rice pudding skin of Autumnal lethargy, let me point you in the direction of the next two Sepia Saturday themes.



203 : Have you ever noticed how many photographs are taken in doorways? For Sepia Saturday 203 we are asking you to frame yourself - well frame your great uncle Joe - open the door, and enter into the spirit of things.



204 : It is 50 years since the assassination of JFK. It was one of those iconic moments in history, just like the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in 1914. So photographs of momentous moments is one of our themes for this week, along with anything else you might find in the photograph.

Back to Sepia Saturday 202 now. Take a look at that prompt image again and notice how the eyes of Felix the Cat follow you around the room. Spooky. Sepia Spooky.

I came across these pictures of two beautiful sisters at Middle Island, Miramichi, NB. (This where boat loads of Irish people landed before going on to other parts of Miramichi, including Chatham, Newcastle and surrounding areas a long time ago). Chatham is steeped in Irish history.

I have a postcard of an early 20th century sand artist.

I started off with a beach shot and started writing about serious earthquakes. Apologies for that!

A beach, a dance or two and a stage performance.

At last, an excuse to write about a photo of unknown girls with a funny little photo prop.

Alan Burnett said...

I am in. But I am still trying to finish the formatting of the book, so my visits to other blogs may be sporadic.

Bob Scotney said...

Beaches and family pics.

I'm here too, with an old memory!

Tripods? I went all over the place with this one, including the priests of Apollo...

Cloche Hats are my theme for this week, so take a look at fashion in the 1920's.

A rare non-musical post from me this weekend with a story about a black cat.

No beach shots for me - I'm starting Remembrance Day early with a blog and diary entries from my Uncle Ricky (war hero).

Not much on this topic. I think my ancestors may have been too prim and proper to wear beach costumes.

Kristin said...

Can't believe I posted last night and forgot to link. Building my uncle Louis' cottage in Idlewild.

Little Nell said...

Almost ran out of time......

Cassmob (Pauleen) said...

Oops, linked this week's post to last week's topic as well. Had to be a bit lateral.

B. Rogers, Living in Black Mountain said...

It's the anniversary of my dad's birth, 99 years ago, so I'm off topic (again)

Linked rather late for this week, or was it last week! - the first time I have joined for ages!
