Sepia Saturday 729 : Saturday 22 June 2024

 


Busy times continue on Sepia Saturday in June and this week we are busy on the sands. Here at Sepia HQ the sun has just come out for the first time in what feels like six months, so I am tempted to head for the seaside. Before I go off to find my bucket and spade there is just time enough to invite you to take part in Sepia Saturday 729 by posting your old photos on or around Saturday 22 June 2024 and adding a link to the list below. Once you've done that you can settle down in your deck chair and take a look at what lies ahead here on Sepia Saturday.

Sepia Saturday 728 : 15 June 2024

 


The nearest we seem to get to a busy market day these days is when there is too much on-line traffic when you are trying to get on the Amazon site. Once upon a time, streets were full of stalls, carts, shoppers - and the occasional horse: those were busy times. Our Busy Times monthly theme continues with this image of a market day in Ireland. You can join in by posting an old image - on theme, off theme or whatever - on or around Saturday 15th June 2024 and adding a link to the list below. Whilst you are browsing the stalls, take a look at what is still to come in these busy times.

Sepia Saturday 727 : 8th June 2024

 
It's a busy time this month on Sepia Saturday and this week we are busy getting votes for women. This week we pay tribute to those brave campaigners who took to the streets in favour of equal democratic rights for women - the Suffragette Movement. If you are in search for a theme you can choose pioneering women, demonstrations, marching feet - or any interpretation of the weekly or monthly theme you care to have. Just post your post on or around Saturday 8th June 2024 and add a link to the list below.  And then, without loosing step with your sisters and brothers, take a look at what is next on Sepia Saturday.

Sepia Saturday 726 : 1st June 2024

 
June is a busy month here on Sepia Saturday. First of all there are five Saturdays in June which means more work for the Sepia Saturday theme image selector, and secondly, crowded streets and events are the monthly theme in question. This week we are with the crowds at a boxing match in Sydney, Australia. All you need to do is to choose your knock-out old image for this week and post it on or around Saturday 1st June 2024 and add a link to the list below. And whilst you are waiting for the fight to begin, take a look at what is coming in the rounds ahead.

Sepia Saturday 725 : 25 May 2024

 

It's time to sit down, relax and enjoy a pleasant drink before dinner. The May Sepia Saturday theme seemed to be various forms of transport and this week's theme image must have crept in because I decided it had been taken on a 1960s cruise ship. It is all very sophisticated and fashionable - very fitting for Sepia Saturday and its participants. So, pull up a chair, ask the waiter for a drink, and join in the fun by posting your post on or around Saturday 25th May 2024 and adding a link to the list below. Now that you are sipping your G&T, take a look at the menu for what is being served in June here on Sepia Saturday.

Sepia Saturday 724 : 18 May 2024

 

We continue our travels during May and this week we are going by car. Old car or new car, big car or small car - it matters not. Just choose whichever vehicle you want that is featured in an old photograph,  feature it in a post on or around Saturday 18th May 2024 and then add a link to the list below. Next week we say goodbye to May with drinks before dinner and then we move on to June which promises to be a very busy time. Here is a hint of what is ahead.

Sepia Saturday 723 : Saturday 11 May 2024

 


We are still out and about in May here on Sepia Saturday and this week we are out and about on our bicycles. There was nothing our Edwardian ancestors like doing quite so much as jumping on their bikes and peddling off in search of adventure - other than perhaps having their photographs taken whilst doing so. So this is your opportunity to share old photographs which may, in some strange and convoluted way, be linked to our monthly theme or our weekly prompt. Just jump on your bikes and post your posts on or around Saturday 11th May and add a link to the list below.  And whilst you are free-wheeling down hill, take a look at what lies around the Sepia corner.
