Sepia Saturday 259 : Christmas and New Year 2014


So here we are, at the end of the fifth year of Sepia Saturday, still going strong, still going sepia. Tradition dictates that we slow things down a little over the festive season with a single call covering both Christmas and New Year. And tradition dictates that it is a festive prompt. So here it is - families, festivities, trees, candles and wine. The image comes from the Flickr stream of the Archives of the Royal Family of Denmark. All you have to do is to post an old image linked to this seasonal theme (or not if you are a Sepia Scrooge) sometime over the festive season and link it to the list below. And don't forget to keep coming back to check out the updated links to the Christmas Linky List.

Before you start tucking into the mince pies and Christmas pudding, here is a bit of a preview of what awaits you in 2015 (a little longer than normal so that you have plenty to occupy you during the post Christmas hiatus!)

260 : Bikes, tents, music, hats, flags - a theme-packed image to start the new year

261 : Unflattering portraits, hair, more hair, lockets, medical illustrations

262 : The law, trials, photographs with writing on them

263 : Old adverts, horses, carts, strange products


Plenty to think about there. But before you head off into 2015, let us see out 2014 in proper sepia style. So here it is, your call for Sepia Saturday 259. So here it is, Merry Christmas.
