Sepia Saturday 638 : Saturday 10 September 2022


It's like waiting for a bus : you spend weeks waiting for one to come along and then three come along at the same time. So here are the next three image prompts for Sepia Saturday. This week it is the No, 638 we are waiting for which will take you to all places including queues, buses, raincoats, not to mention the fair city of London. Match the theme if you want, ignore it if you please. All you need to do is to get your submission linked to the list below on or around Saturday 10th September 2022. And whilst you are waiting for the next bus, you can have a look at the themes due in the next couple of weeks.

Sepia Saturday 637 : 3 September 2022


Yet again I have forgotten to put the prompt up! Old age is catching up with me, which is quite appropriate for Sepia Saturday. So rather the wait for it to catch me, I’m catching a bus instead. You can join me by linking your sepia posts to the list below

Sepia Saturday 636 : 27 August 2022

A picture of a happy couple - my parent's-in-law as it happens. But there is a small child in the background making sure he gets into the picture. Today we call this "photobombing": the word may be new, but the action is far from being new. For Sepia Saturday this week you can feature examples of vintage photobombing, or feature couples, or feature whatever you choose. Just share an old photograph and add a link to the list below on or around Saturday 27 August 2022.  And whilst you are waiting for the child to get out of the way, take a look at the next couple of Sepia Saturday theme images.

Sepia Saturday 635 : 20 August 2022


"Stand still!". "Look, you've got to stand still or else the photograph will be all blurred!" "Right, that's it, I've warned you, where's that glue?" Maybe I'm exaggerating, and maybe this poor child's hand has not been glued to the chair, but photographers from years gone by went to extraordinary lengths to ket their subjects to keep still. For Sepia Saturday 635 (post your posts on or around Saturday 20th August) you can  move with movement, or babies, or chairs .... or whatever you want. As long as it's old and it's new, that';s all we want you to do .... other than add a link to the list below. And whilst you are keeping still, let your eyes explore the next couple of Sepia Saturday themes.

Sepia Saturday 634 : 13 August 2022

Digging through old photographs, looking for clues as to place, time or person, sifting for details that will illuminate a story - lovers of old photographs are a bit like archeologists - dealing with pictures rather than places. Our theme image this week is just a detail of a larger image, one I cut out of a magazine many moons ago. Sadly, I have lost the details of who took the photograph, but it is masterful. I've added a little colour and focussed on just three faces: I like to think of them as three faces in search of a back story. I could say that this week, on Sepia Saturday, we are celebrating how images can help us find stories - but that is what we do every week on Sepia Saturday. So bring along any image you like, bring along any story - and add it to the Sepia Saturday Collection. Post you post, add a link and away we go. 

Next week we will be in search of more stories and more images and if you need a prompt - here it is.
