Sepia Saturday 492 : 19 October 2019

I have spent quite a bit of time this last eighteen months pushing a pram around: for some reason this is something you recall much more when you are pushing your grandchildren around rather than their parents. I dare say there are a good few photographs locked away inside mobile phones of me on recent pram-pushing duty, but those are far too recent for Sepia Saturday purposes. The compulsion to take out a camera every time a baby and a pram is present is, luckily for our purposes, not only universal, but also timeless. Therefore, for Sepia Saturday 492, we are asking you to dip into your archives and find a suitable image - and then post it on or around Saturday 19th October. Add a link to the list below and you can help propel the image around the world.

Whilst you are waiting for the little cherub to fall asleep, take a look at what is around the sepia corner.

Sepia Saturday 491 : Saturday 12 October 2019

Our theme image this week features mill workers in America in the early years of the twentieth century, and it is an image that has a very personal connection for me. Whether you, like me, have mill workers in your family tree or not, the fabric of our theme can easily stretch to encompass any aspect of the world of work. Or machines, or fabrics, or .... whatever your imagination wants to do with it. Just post a post featuring an old image on or around Saturday 12 October 2019 and add a link to the list below.

Whilst you are waiting for your bobbins to bob or your spindles to spin, you might want to take a look at our next couple of theme images.

Sepia Saturday 490 : 5 October 2019

Two women on a boat in the middle of a lake. One of the women seems to be making a determined effort to row the boat, whilst the other one seems to be resting on her laurels - or at least resting on her oar. There are all sorts of potential themes in this early twentieth century photograph - just pick your theme and post a post on or around Saturday 5th October 2019. Then all you need to do is to add a link to the list below. Whilst you rest for a while, take a look at the next couple of Sepia Saturday themes.

Sepia Saturday 489 : 28 September 2019

For the last few weeks I have been lazing around on a swinging sun chair whilst meandering around the Mediterranean Ocean - but all good things must come to an end, so here I am, back home again, washing the mud off my galoshes and battening down the hatches against the coming wind and rain. Before we let the summer go (or, for those lucky sepia antipodeans, before we fully welcome summer in), here is a last opportunity to take a swing at a seasonal Sepia Saturday prompt. All you have to do is to choose something suitable, include it in a post, post it on or around Saturday 28 September 2019, and add a link to the list below.

Whilst you swing your life away, here is a preview of the next couple of Sepia Saturday prompts.

Sepia Saturday 488 : 21 September 2019

Read all about it. Whilst you are reading this I will be all at sea and there is a possibility that when I look out of my cabin window I might see some Turkish trophies. Wherever I happen to be, I have a feeling that I am not going to be able to avoid the news from home. You can help create the news by looking through your old photographs in search of one that might match this theme. When you find one, includes it in a post, and post your post on or around Saturday 21 September 2019. When you have done that, add a link to the list below.

Once you have posted your post and read all the news, take a look at what awaits you next week.

Sepia Saturday 487 : 14 September 2019

I have always wanted a well-behaved dog. I remember my father telling me that the basis of dog obedience is that the dog in question recognises who is master. All my dogs have quickly recognised this, which has made them as obedient as a fractious ferret. So whilst my dog chews up another of my socks I am inviting you to submit your old photos for Sepia Saturday 487. Post your posts on or around Saturday 14 September 2019 and add a link to the list below.

My dog is about to take me for a walk - whilst I am gone, you might want to look at what is around the Sepia Saturday corner.

Sepia Saturday 486 : 7 September 2019

Eager faces lined with concentration and anxious to study and learn - it reminds me of my own schooldays! Well perhaps not. Our Sepia Saturday theme image this week takes us back into the classroom to witness what happens when elements - such as old photos and new memories - come together. Whatever kind of reaction this causes in you - record it in a blog post, and post the post on or around Saturday 7th September 2019. Once you have posted, add a link to the list below.

Whilst you are waiting for the various chemicals to mix together, take a look at what is around the Sepia corner.
