Sepia Saturday 658 : 4 February 2023

 


This week on Sepia Saturday we are all up in the air, flying in aeroplanes, taking to the skies, or whatever other interpretations of the theme you can come up with. When you come up with it, post it in a post on or around Saturday 4 February 2023 and link it to the list below. And whilst you are flying high, you can look down on what is to come on Sepia Saturday for the next five weeks.

Sepia Saturday 657 : 28 January 2023

 



Our transport theme continues and this week we are messing about on boats. Or to be more exact, we are messing about with old pictures of boats. We sail on Saturday 28th January 2023, so upload your old photos and leave a link below in time to catch the boat. And here is a reminder of what is to come.

Sepia Saturday 656 : 21 January 2023

 


You can't stop me once I get a theme going, so welcome to my transport theme. For the next few weeks, Sepia Saturday is being taken over by modes of transport and this week we are on the train. As always, you can get on the train and reflect it in your chosen old photograph, or you can nonchalantly watch it pass you by and post whatever old photograph you choose to. Whatever your choice, don't miss the train and post it on or around Saturday 21st January 2023 and add a link to the list below. Tickets please!

Whilst you are waiting for the train to come into the station, take a look at what lies ahead on Sepia Saturday.

Sepia Saturday 654 : Saturday 7 January 2023

 


Sorry about last week - I got dragged into the celebrations of Christmas a little too much and the house was full of visitors and grandchildren and my Sepia duties got pushed out of the way. We are back this week with a Sepia theme that reminds us that those olden days could often be cruel. Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums have a collection of photographs of young criminals - children in many cases, sent to prison for stealing the most basic of things. There is a beauty in some of these old photographs which is only matched by the sadness of the circumstances that brought them into being.  As usual, you can follow the theme, or ignore it - all you have to do is to share an old photograph on or around Saturday 7th January 2023, and add a link to the list below.

Sepia Saturday 652 : 17th December 2022


Our theme image for Sepia Saturday 652 depicts a radio communications officer surrounded by what at the time would be all the latest communications equipment. Our themes are therefore communications in their widest sense and all manner of technology and equipment. Or it can be radio or it can be ships: with Sepia Saturday, you can be as obtuse or creative as you like. Over and out.

And for next week-


As is traditional on Sepia Saturday, our Christmas theme image covers the two week festive period. Our theme image reflects traditions and Christmas, and what could be more traditional than cart loads of turkeys on their way to market! You can make of the theme image what you will, and follow it in any direction you choose. The only essential is that you all have the very best of a sepia Christmas time.

Sepia Saturday 651 : 10th December 2022

 


The only thing I know about this week's theme image was a single word written on the back of the photograph: "Granny". The photograph is one of the ones I have acquired from who knows where - old photographs are attracted to me like iron filings to a magnet - and therefore it is no granny of mine nor anyone that I know. But she looks like formidable lady, and therefore she is perfect for our Sepia Saturday theme for this week. So share your photos of grannies and formidable ladies on or around Saturday 10th December 2022 and add a link to the list below.
