Sepia Saturday 521 : 23 May 2020

Our Sepia Saturday theme image this week features a pair of winners. You know they are winners because their car bonnet (hood) is covered in trophies. For those who wish to follow themes, there are many on show here: prizes, winners, trophies, waves, cars, bonnets and hoods. Whatever you decide to go with, go with it on or around Saturday 23 May 2020 and add a link to the list below. And if you don't win the prize this week, you can always start planning ahead for future competitions - here are the next two Sepia Saturday theme images.

Sepia Saturday 520 : 16 May 2020

You cannot imagine how much I wish I could emulate the Sepia Saturday theme image for this week: - a pint in the sun. The sun in question was the Sun Inn, a few miles north of Doncaster and the three men enjoy a lunchtime pint were work colleagues of mine. The empty chair and the half drunk pint were mine. For me, the image brings to mind memories of work friendships and good times. For you, it might prompt thoughts of cars, beers, or sunny days. Most of all, it brings back memories of when we could go out, mix with friends and enjoy a pleasant pint of beer in the sun (or, indeed, at The Sun). Whatever photography memories it might rekindle, rekindle them on or around Saturday 16th May 2020 and add a link to the list below.

Whilst you are sipping your imaginary pint in the imaginary Sun, you might want to take a look at what is around the corner on Sepia Saturday.

Sepia Saturday 518 : Saturday 2 May 2020

There can never be a moment more timely and appropriate to feature health care workers on our Sepia Saturday prompt image than now. We owe so much to doctors, nurses and care workers at the moment, but we always have had: it is just that it takes a serious emergency for us to remember it. This week, on Sepia Saturday I am asking you to feature your tributes to all of those who are keeping us safe at the moment by featuring your old photographs of carers of all types and all times. Just post your post on or around Saturday 2 May 2020 and add a link to the list below.

Here are the next two Sepia Saturday theme images:-

Sepia Saturday 516 : 18th April 2020

Here we are, another Saturday, still in lockdown, and another Sepia Saturday prompt full of people. There are dozens of them on this old photograph from my own collection. I don't know who they are or where they are, but they are all saying - step up and take part in this week's Sepia Saturday challenge. To do so, just post an old photograph - either on theme or off theme - on or around Saturday 18th April 2020 and add a link to the list below. And whilst we are all gathered together like this, why not take a look at what is coming up on Sepia Saturday in the next couple of weeks.

Sepia Saturday 515 : 11 April 2020

Let's jump in the car, all of us together. Let the top down and we will get a bit of fresh air. We'll go to the shop and meet all our friends. Crowd together and have our photograph taken.

Who would have thought that Sepia Saturday would not just be celebrating old images, but also old habits! We may not be able to do all the things we took for granted only a couple of months ago, but we can still dig our way through our old photographs and share them with our friends. This week, our Sepia Saturday theme image shows a happy group outside a shop. The number of potential themes you could find in this photograph is as extensive as the supply of goods crammed into the car. Pick out just one and match it with one of your own old photographs on or around Saturday 11 April 2020 and then add a link to the list below.

Here are the next couple of theme images. Take a look at them, sort through your collections and - most important of all - stay safe.
