Sepia Saturday 226 : 3 May 2014


This week's prompt comes fom the archives of The Library of Congress courtesy of Flickr Commons, where the subjects are taking part in what is described as a 'Greek Cymball Dance’ at a Sufragette Ball. Now, you may wish to hang on to that description as a possible avenue to explore if inspiration deserts you. Otherwise we have May Day, dancing, folk traditions or very silly poses; take your pick or forget about themes altogether. The main thing is to join in with an old image of your own choice and an interesting post to share with fellow Sepians. Post it on or before Saturday 3rd May, with a link back here to Sepia Saturday please (or add the mini banner below if your prefer), then leave a comment with our friend Mr Linky below. We’re big on tradition here at Sepia Saturday, and one of those is to visit fellow Sepians and leave encouraging comments on their posts, it cheers us up no end.


Alan will be back at the helm next week, but for those who like thinking time (or time to rummage through the Sepia Shoebox) here are the next two prompts.  Have fun.

I just want to say, excellent choice for theme this week, folks are responding with such fun things, that are just so delightful, and feel so cheery to see! Thanks all for the day brighteners! Bravo all.

Something with a very Montreal flavor...

I'd love it if you'd put my blog on the sidebar again as a participant. I'm not as regular as I once was but I'm still here. Thanks!
