Sepia Saturday 253 : 8 November 2014


I have to confess, I have never been a fisherman. The thought of sitting next to some damp river bank waiting for some obliging fish to bite leaves me cold. The thought of having to push a sharp hook through some non-obliging worm leaves me frozen. I am much happier with an old photograph of some fishermen, and that is just what we have for Sepia Saturday this week. It is a photograph that dates back to 1916 and which has been shared via Flickr Commons by Alberta Archives. All you need to do is to cast your digital hook into your collection of old images and come up with something that may or may not match our theme image. You might want to go with miners or with anglers, with fishy tales or with three men : whatever you go with just post your post on or around Saturday 8th November 2014 and add a link to the list below.

Whilst you are waiting for inspiration to bite, you might want to look at the next couple of Sepia Saturday themes.


254 : Couples, clinches, crossings, hitching a ride



255 : Children, train sets, crafts, silhouettist,dogs, family groups

So there we go. Sit back, clear your mind of all worries and cares. Cast your line and see what you can catch.

I'm early this week. Found the photo prompt very easy as I am from a family of fishermen and women!
