Sepia Saturday 303 : 31 October 2015


We have a treat for you this week - or maybe it is a trick. It is an image from the collection of the New York Public Library - an old greetings card (although I can't imagine who would want to send cards at Halloween - aren't Christmas, Birthdays, Valantines' Day, Mothers' Day, Fathers' Day, and Easter enough!) If you give me a treat I will give you all sorts of potential themes you might want to follow. Without a treat, you are on your own: just post your post on or around Saturday 31 October 2015 and add a link to the list below. Before you go off knocking on doors and bothering the neighbours, take a look at what is coming next week.


Don't forget if you want the full list of theme images for the rest of the year, you can find them all HERE.

Halloween is "the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers".  And what are we Sepians dedicated to but remember the dead via photographic images : past people, past places, past events. Halloween is the natural sepia festival : Halloween Greetings To All.

I'm looking to forward to seeing who's the fairest of them all this week - well, not really, after all it's not a competition!

Is it silly to trust a mirror? Perhaps. Perhaps not. Then again...

ScotSue said...

No fair maidens, mirrors on the wall or Halloween for me. That leaves, not just that unprepossessing man, but his hat - my theme for this week.

Kristin said...

No mirrors, but the fair maiden is looking into a little face.

Little Nell said...

A couple of mirrors and reflective poem.

Thanks for the inspiration. Wishing everyone a Happy Hallowe'en! My post, 'Tales of Harbingers & Ghostly Visits' will appear on Saturday. Cheers!

I didn't think I had anything and then remembered an odd postcard that I think fits very neatly. Musical of course.

Dara said...

Happy Halloween everyone, but my post's about the cartoonist in the family. Thanks.

My participation has been spotty at best, but I am here for the tricks and treats!
