Sepia Saturday 247 : 27 September 2014


Times might have been hard but it is now time to get on your bike and take to the road. Time to leave the safety of the tent behind on see what awaits you over the next hill or around the next bend. It is time to put your post together for Sepia Saturday 247. All you have to do is to post an old image and say something new about it. If you would like to follow the theme, you can link to tents, towels, turbans, motorbikes, uniforms or any other visual prompt you can find in this 1944 photograph from the Provincial Archives of Alberta which is entitled "Canadian Motorcycle Courier and Two Servicewomen". Once you have posted your post you can link it to the list below and rev-up your digital bikes and visit all your sepia friends.

Before you throttle up the engine, take a look at what awaits you around the sepia corner.

248 : The little guy, package from home, magazine covers

249 : Coach rides,old transport, animated discussion, cab drivers

And now I am going to follow my own advice, although my transport of choice will be a rather large cruise ship rather than a motorbike. My good friend and fellow Sepia Saturday administrator, Marilyn Brindley, will be looking after the calls whilst I am away. I will be back, fully refreshed and hopefully ready to start blogging again, in time to take part in SS250. See you then.

No tents or soldiers but my mother does have a towel over her arm and a hand on her hip. 1955.

I couldn't decide what aspect of the prompt picture I wanted to concentrate on, so what the hey, I went for all of it!

I scanned a photo which I carried in my wallet for many years. I'll save the rest of my tent camping pics for another topic. This one reminded me of motorcycles and young love!

I appealed to a higher power and went off topic. lol

I chose the wheels in the photo but went for the pedal power kind.

I went for wheels too, some pedal power some not. Thanks.

Went with the tent theme, but managed to sneak in a motorbike helmet too.

Can't post this week or next as I'm away from home and photos, but can still enjoy reading everyone else's, even if I can't leave a comment.

Like Wendy I ignored tents last week but this week I tick two of the boxes because I have a tent and a uniform.
