Sepia Saturday 733 : 20 July 2024

We may not quite be on the water this week on Sepia Saturday, but we are the next best thing - on the sands. The seashore has been a magnet for children down the generations, with bucket and spade in hand, every child must feel a thrill when the seaside is in sight. This week we are celebrating this endless love affair here on Sepia Saturday and so we invite you to share your old photographs on or around Saturday 20th July 2024 and leave a link on the list below.  And as July turns into August, here is what is to come on Sepia Saturday.

Sepia Saturday 732 : Saturday 13 July 2024

 


Gone fishing .... on the water. Our monthly theme is "on the water" and this week we are on the water (or just next to it to be accurate) doing a spot of fishing. All we ask is that you go fishing in your collection of old photographs to see if you have anything that fits the theme. If whatever you fish out doesn't fit the theme, don't worry, we don't really have rules here on Sepia Saturday. Just post an old photo and share a few new thoughts and do it on or around Saturday 13th July 2024 and add a link to the list below. And whilst you are waiting for something to bite, take a look at what lies under the surface for the rest of the month.

Sepia Saturday 731 : 6th July 2024

 


We are on the water this week on Sepia Saturday. Some of us, however, are in the water having stayed up far too late watching British election results and consequently forgetting to put the Sepia Saturday call up! My apologies. I will add the next few images as soon as I catch up on my sleep deficit. In the meantime jump into the water, or onto the water, this week by posting your submissions on or around Saturday 6th July 2024 and adding a link to the list below.

Sepia Saturday : Saturday 29 June 2024

 


The last of our Busy Times theme and I am so busy I nearly forget to put the prompt up! I therefore rush to my open top tourer car, and dash off to the Coronado Country Club in San Diago and get there just in time to invite you to post your weekly posts on or around Saturday 29th June 2024 and add a link to the list below. We're off on the water next month so hopefully that will be more relaxing.

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.
