Welcome one and all to Sepia Saturday 214. Before I get to the main theme, let me start with a catchy little overture. Regular Sepians can ignore this as they will have heard it all before.
Sepia Saturday is an anarchic place with no rules but one or two customs and conventions. We are a group of bloggers who enjoy old photographs. We don't define what old is, and over the years we have shared photos from the mid-nineteenth century and photos from the mid nineteen-nineties : and all points in-between. We normally like to add a few words of explanation or description but the precise balance between images and words is entirely up to individual bloggers. Each week we have a theme, but the theme is open to any amount of interpretation, or it can be totally ignored and replaced with any old photo you may want to share. Once you have posted your post on your blog you add a link to the weekly Linky List and that will encourage other Sepians to visit your blog and comment on your post. We would encourage you to also visit the blogs of other Sepians and comment on their posts but we realise that it is not always possible to get around to everyone.
That is the end of the overture (which hopefully new Sepians found useful) so we can now move onto the main movement. And our theme image this week features a concentrating pianist, and an enthusiastic observer. The photograph comes from the Library of Congress collection on Flickr Commons and shows Julia Culp and C Von Dos. But you don't have to go with the obvious : as with most old pictures there are a multitude of potential themes there (I rather like the picture within a picture possibility). All you need to do is to decide which old photograph(s) you are going to feature and then post your post on or around Saturday 8th February 2014. Then add a link to the list below and let the sepia music begin.
But before the tune gets underway, spare a moment to get a quick preview of the next couple of Sepia Saturday themes:
Sepia Saturday 215 : A busy and crowded street scene in Glasgow
Sepia Saturday 216 : Three men in suits and hats
But back to the present performance. Ladies and Gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure to introduce our performers for this evening, playing the Sepia Saturday theme it is Julia Culp and C Von Dos.
