Sepia Saturday 298 : 26 September 2015


Our theme image this week shows Nadine and Sylvia Szechenyi with their dogs in front of the Vanderbilt Mansion in New York. The two girls were the grand-daughters of Cornelius Vanderbilt, whose daughter, Gladys, had married the Hungarian Count Lazlo Szechenyi. The photograph - which can be found on the Estonia State Archive stream on Flickr -  was taken in 1931 and suggests themes such as girls, twos, dogs, steps and the mysterious number 18. As usual, all you have to do is to post your post and then link it to the list below.

Before you take your digital dog for a walk, why not see what is around the next lamp-post.



So there you are and as you are thinking of what to post for Sepia Saturday 298 on the 26 of September 2015, just think if you add all those numbers up, add one for luck and divide by the theme two you get the mysterious 18. Who says, Sepia Saturday isn't clever?

Sisters and pets are what I had in my picture boxes. The sisters in the prompt are fascinating...burned up a bit of time reading about them.

Posting early this week as I’m going to be away for a couple of weeks. See you all for the big 300.

For once I have abandoned the obvious, as I featured both little girls and dogs last year on Sepia Saturday. So here my theme is Powerful Pillars - take a look at the background on the right of the picture for my inspiration.

Two sets of sisters, one set with a dog and one named Gladys.

A little of this, a little of that, & a rather short entry for me this week after returning from a two-week vacation.

Some smiling spaniels from me - if we have dogs again, I'm all out of photos now!

I apologize for the double entry - the first one didn't work due to a slip of the fingers.

Siblings and a dog but the story is not about them

I'm happy to say my photos are from my own family! Alan I'm hoping your vacationing is wonderful. Enjoy and share photos please!

I've got another long story this weekend, so bring a snack and a drink. Be patient and you'll be rewarded with a dog.
A very very big dog.

Sometimes it's just hard to remember where I am and what I'm doing. Thus in my confusion I have posted for a theme from many weeks ago. Roll with it. I do bring it all home by the end.

Yay for me, I posted on Sat, and I have some photos that are somewhat related to subject.
