Sepia Saturday 691 : 23 September 2023


We are still on the street here at Sepia Saturday and this week we have a rather fine petrol station (gas station) to prompt your photographic memories. You don't have to follow the specific theme elements you may find in this photographs, you don't even have to follow the monthly theme (On The Street), you can go where you want on Sepia Saturday. Just post a post on or around Saturday 23rd September 2023 and add a link to the list below. Next week will be the final of our On The Street themes and I am delighted to reveal the general themes for the final quarter of the year. The specific theme images for October will be posted shortly.

Sepia Saturday 690 : 16 September 2023


We're still on the street, but now we have hanging washing and kids reading newspapers. Both probably tell of times long gone and they provide us with an opportunity to share photographs from times long gone. Just post your post on or around Saturday 16th September 2023 and add a link to the list below. And once you have done that, take a look at the remaining September theme images. And once you've done that - bring the washing in.

Sepia Saturday 689 : Saturday 9th September 2023


Walk down the street, any street in any town. Street photography is a very popular subject these days, but there is nothing new about street photography. People have been walking down that street in that town for decades, taking photographs of what they found there. This month on Sepia Saturday it is your opportunity to share your old street photographs, photographs from any street in any town. Just share them on or around Saturday 9th September 2023 and add a link to the list below. And whilst you are waiting to cross the road, take a look at what is coming down Sepia Street.

Sepia Saturday 688 : 2 September 2023


We are on their street this month in Sepia Saturday with all the theme images somehow related to that general theme. You can either follow the general theme, look for something in the weekly theme image to follow (for example the crowds, the buses or the wide streets in this week's image), or ignore the theme all together. Just give us an old image and some new thoughts and post your post on or around Saturday 2 September 2023 and then add a link to the list below. 

Let's see where this particular street leads to in the coming weeks:-

Sepia Saturday 687 : 26 August 2023


We are nearing the end of our school days - or at least the end of our month of school day related prompts. This is your final chance to sit quietly and draw a nice picture for teacher - or at least share a nice old photograph with your sepia school-friends. Simply post your post on or around Saturday 26th August 2023 and add a link to the list below. And when school is out, it's time to hit the streets, so here is a preview of what is around the street corner in the first part of September.

Sepia Saturday 686 : Saturday 19 August 2023

We are still at school here on Sepia Saturday and asking you to share your old photographs that somehow or other might fall within the general theme of "School Days". This week we have a group of school pupils at a Sports Day, but that is merely my interpretation of the theme - you can come up with your own, When you have, post your post on or around Saturday 19th August 2023 and add a link to the list below. And whilst we are waiting for the first race to begin, take a look at what awaits you on Sepia Saturday.

Sepia Saturday 685 : 12 August 2023


Our theme picture this week might not make you immediately think of school days, but it does me. That's my old school in the background and, I suspect, given enough time I could put names to some of the schoolboys stood around watching the high jump and most of the school teachers organising it. Schools and school days are like that, rich seams in the memory mine. Here is your opportunity to evoke old school days for yourself, someone in your family or some unknown person whose image happens to be in your collection.  Simply post your post on or around Saturday 12 August 2023 and add a link to the list below. And here is a reminder of the other school days to come during the rest of this month.
