Sometimes, in the midst of all the hustle and bustle of daily life, you can feel alone. Your body might be walking down the supermarket aisle searching for your Christmas brussel sprouts, but your mind is miles away, walking along the beach of some desert island. Your hands might be writing anodyne words in endless plastic Christmas cards, but your imagination is exploring the very special world of old images. Be they old postcards, old family photographs or old book illustrations, it doesn't really matter: they all have a special attraction to us sepians. And as we sort out our images and write our words, we suddenly discover the footprints of other lovers of old images - footprints in the sepia sands of time.
Which is merely a single malt-whisky induced convoluted way of introducing our theme image for Sepia Saturday 308 (post your posts on or around Saturday 5th December 2015). Make of it what you will fellow sepians, let your imagination travel as far as that of Daniel Defoe when he wrote Robinson Crusoe - from which this illustration is taken (via the Flickr Commons stream of The British Library).
But before you start following the footprints in the sand, spare a thought for what awaits you next week. And don't forget you can see the rest of the 2015 theme images HERE, and the theme images for the first quarter of 2016 HERE.
But now it is time to sift through the sands of time and see what you can come up with for Sepia Saturday 308
