Sepia Saturday 432 : 18th August 2018
Parachute Jumper (Bain News Service, 1915-20)
DANGER  :  JUMPING  :  SKY  :  FLYING

I will be up, up and away by the time this Sepia Saturday comes around - but hopefully not in a hot air balloon, nor am I planning to take a parachute jump into the unknown. You can, however, jump right into this week's Sepia Saturday by posting an old photograph (either on-theme or off-theme) on or around Saturday 18th August 2018 and adding a link to the list below.

And here is a taste of what is to come on Sepia Saturday - and, take note, a change in emphasis lies just around the corner.

Sepia Saturday 431 : 11 August 2018


Lights, camera, action ... It is time for Sepia Saturday 431. This is a very easy theme, because if you don't have an old photo featuring a camera in your collection, you will certainly have an old photo taken by a camera! Share the photo on or around Saturday 11th August 2018 and add a link to the list below. What could be easier? It's so easy you can spend your time looking at what is around the Sepia corner.

Sepia Saturday 430 : 4th August 2018


Sepia Saturday 430 : 4th August 2018
Reclining Man And New York Subway Station (A B Phelen, 1910)
ILLUSIONS  :  TRICK PHOTOS  :  BIG AND SMALL

You know what it is like - sometimes you just wake up in the morning and everything seems wrong: out of proportion, upside down or back to front! For well over 100 years photographers have been mimicking this feeling by using the tricks of the camera and the darkroom. Now is your opportunity to share such photographs from your collection. If you don't have any, just choose something that illustrates big and small, light and dark or any kind of contrasts. And if all else fails, just share an old photograph. All you need to do is to share it on or around Saturday 4th August 2018 and add a link to the list below.

Here is what lies around the Sepia Corner

I've nearly missed the boat this week - I am so late putting the call up. Sorry about that - I hope it hasn't stopped you trawling through your archives in an effort to catch a fishy old photograph or two. As usual, just post your post on or around Saturday 28th of July and let us all "sea" what you have come up with.

Here is what the future holds -

CHILDREN : DOGS : PRAMS : STICKS

Ah lovely - a group of kids with a dog and a baby in a pram and some sticks and what looks like a double-barrelled shotgun!!! Those objects that turn up by chance in old photographs are always fascinating and can sometimes become the story in their own right. You can make your story about sticks, stones, prams or pooches - the choice is yours. Simply post your post on or around Saturday 14th July 2018 and add a link to the list below.

Here is what we have up next on Sepia Saturday.
