Sepia Saturday 147: 13 October 2012
Well, we said, "Bon Voyage" to Alan last week, so here am I to step into his shoes for a spell. I hope you'll cut me a bit of slack on a number of counts. I have been absent from the Sepia Saturday circuit for some time, as I have been very occupied with cooking and baking and posting recipes on a new blog. (No self-promotion, I assure you.)
I am new to the procedures for posting the calls for Sepia Saturday, so I hope I don't make any blunders, and I shall try to live up to the skill and erudition of our wandering host.
In any event, I will do my best to make these next few weeks enjoyable and up to par.
The above picture just caught my eye. I suppose that's because my father was an Army man. As a result, I'm a big fan of military movies, and so anything with a regimental look is bound to draw my attention. This photo has been borrowed from the Flickr Commons National Library of Ireland (I'm also a bit partial to anything Irish, since my dad was born in the the North of that country.) I hope you like the image!
In terms of a theme, there are many directions one could go with this. You could deal with the military angle (of course, that's obvious), group photos, uniforms, medals and regalia, dapper caps, or even shiny boots, And well, it looks as if only one of the chaps above hasn't got a moustache, so that's a possibility as well, isn't it?
Other than that, you can choose to veer off this path entirely and do your own thing. We are not judgmental here at Sepia Saturday; we'll read it all, won't we?
So, get your posts composed, and just post your link below, so we can all have a look to see what you've come up with!
See you on Saturday!
You can also put your thinking caps on and start pondering how to handle these images coming up in the next few weeks. (Don't they look like fun?)
Sorry folks, I managed to make the rounds to about 2/3 of your posts, but this morning I awoke with a severe pain in my right shoulder blade (repetitive strain from beating muffin-batter, I think) and will not be following up until tomorrow or later with the remainder of you. I do apologize.
Watch for the next "call" on Wednesday morning!
Now to the task at hand. See what you can make of the "Sergeants" photo above (and below) ...
Cross your fingers, folks! Here's my first crack at Mr. Linky. Hope it works!
