Libraries are places where things are kept: old things, new things, things that will be of interest to others. Come to think of it, libraries are a little like Sepia Saturday. So this week we are asking you to file away your old photographs, stack them on the digital shelves, and make them available for other people to borrow, look at, and appreciate. Just post you post on or around Saturday 1st December 2018 and add a link to the list below.
We have theme images available for the rest of 2018 (see below), but I have not prepared any for January yet. Before doing so, I wanted to consult with the remaining few loyal Sepians with regards to the future of Sepia Saturday. The number of participants has been falling off for some time now and it provides us with an opportunity to take stock and think about the future.
I would like to kick the discussion off by suggesting four alternatives for your consideration.
1. Accept that Sepia Saturday may have run its course and close it down at the end of the year.
2. Keep Sepia Saturday blog-based (centred around the Sepia Saturday Blog) but maybe have a monthly theme rather that a weekly one. People could submit multiple posts if they so wished.
3. Change Sepia Saturday into a Facebook Group. We could still have weekly theme prompts but the submissions would be handled via the Facebook Group - simply by adding a link on the Facebook Group page to your submission - be it a blog post or whatever.
4. Leave things exactly as they are.
I am sure there are other possible suggestions and I would be delighted if people could put those forward for consideration. Let me know what you all think. In the meantime here are the rest of the December theme images.
