Sepia Saturday 311 : 2 January 2016


Welcome to a new year of Sepia Saturday and the start of a new set of themes which will run for the first half of the year. This year we are abandoning wordy prompts and just leaving you with an image which you are free to interpret as you like. You might want to look within the image for shapes, places, objects, words, colours ... or whatever you want : the choice is yours. And, in the finest Sepia Saturday traditions, you also have the choice of ignoring any talk of themes and just sharing an old photograph and a few new words. When Marilyn and I were putting this set of prompts together we thought it might be fun to have an hidden theme within a set of themes - let's see if anyone can spot it within the months to come.

Whatever you decide to do with the above image - which is a 1942 photograph of the Grand Grocery Co. of Lincoln, Nebraska from the Library of Congress stream on Flickr Commons - do it on or around Saturday 2nd January 2016 and link it to the list below. You can see the next couple of Sepia Saturday prompts below and a full list for the first three months of the year can be accessed via the link in the sidebar.


 

As you will see I have done a little tidying up of the Sepia Saturday Blog. If your blog has been inadvertently dropped from the list of participants please let me know and I will replace it. It is nice occasionally to have a little spring cleaning of our Blog, after all it is the shop window of Sepia Saturday. And talking of shop windows ....

Enjoy some window shopping with my look at shop frontages and shop signs.

Congratulations Marilyn and Alan - I like the new Sepia Saturday header.

Early this week for mine. Nothing to do with the prompt but more with the date.

It's been a while...please forgive me...imagine me offering you a piece of humble pie from the Wingfields Cake Shop.

Yes, we have no bananas. Nor oranges, or potatoes either.
Just a musical wish for a happy new year!

Thanks very much for the inspiration image.

My 2x Great Grandmother owned a Confectionary Store in the early 1900s in Chicago, Illinois.

Happy New Year to all! I hope this is a wonderful year for all of us. I happened to catch Little Nell's post and it brought back a few old memories of my own, so I hope you enjoy a bit of my past!
