Sepia Saturday 279 : 16th May 2015


First of all let me thank all those Sepians who responded - both on this Blog and on our Facebook page - to my post last week about the future of Sepia Saturday. If I have understood things correctly, everyone wants to keep Sepia Saturday going as a Blog and with weekly themes. If that is the case, so be it. We can perhaps make a few changes - I particularly like the idea of Sepians putting forward theme images - and I will continue to welcome these over the coming weeks. Marilyn and I will then put our heads together and come up with some proposals.

For the moment we have Sepia Saturday 279 - which features a picture of an old Australian blast furnace - to deal with (post your posts on or around Saturday 16th May 2015). You might want to go with safety, you might want to go with danger or you may want to find something within the image yourself to act as your own theme. And there is always, and always will be, the option of ignoring the theme and just sharing an old photograph. 

In order to encourage forward planning, here is a preview of the next three Sepia Saturday themes.

  



For now, throw caution to the wind,  go with the safe option or go with the dangerous one, blast it, just post your Sepia Saturday post and link it to the list below.

Hi from this potter person, sharing about the firing of pots of course!

A perfect opportunity to write about my family roots in, and the cotton mills of Blackburn, England.

From rope to boilers to ships to boilers to bombs. Just another sepia tour.

My post has something to do with the prompt photo.

Mike Brubaker said...

I found a sign and a story to fit. Musical of course.

Sean Bentley said...

Now there's a prompt I can run with. Not necessarily dangerous, unless you get tetanus from a rusty bit, or light a match around the petroleum fumes... anyway I added a bit of whimsy to the mix.

Who is a BF? Not me - I hope.

Thanks for the inspiration image. I'm late to the party this morning, but happy to be along for the ride. My post is entitled: 'What was, that is, but isn't: Marrying past and present.'

Just when it seems that we're toast weather-wise, we got a record amount of rain for this time of year. Our rain gauge shows a little less two inches. Celebration time!

I have a feeling that this is the first time I have had to lead the post with an image that is not my own but have had to borrow a couple of images ! Thats terrible ! Tlaking about the engines at gold mines and the names they are given.

Better late than never. I really wanted to write this story but was very busy over the weekend so here it is now.
