Sepia Saturday 148: 20 October 2012
I have finally made it round to everyone's posts from last week, and I must say, you all exceeded expectations. I think we learned a great deal about various troops, and soldiers and battles. Those who drifted from the theme were no less enlightening and entertaining. Thank you all!
I'm posting a bit early again to give us all some extra time.
Here is another Flickr Commons photograph from the National Library of Ireland and I know what you're all thinking ... more UNIFORMS??? Well, yes, sort of, but it's what is going on in this image that really struck me, and there are a few directions one could go with this - say, bikes? Or perhaps, guns (since there appears to be an exchange of one going on here). How about "nosy parkers" in the backgrounds of photographs? What's that term where someone or something usurps a shot? Oh yes! The PHOTOBOMB. (Google it; you'll have a right laugh!)
Then there's the obvious tack with the Police, or "Coppers" as you Brits like to say.
So, on your bikes, get set ... POST! (And don't forget to link back here on Friday, so we can all have a gander.)
Incidentally, it has come to my attention that a few of you have issues with posting comments where an Open ID is required. It would be simpler if comments were set up differently. In Blogger, go to Layout; choose Settings, Posts and Comments and select "ANYONE". With this set-up, visitors will have not trouble signing in to share their thoughts. I know that everyone wishes to reciprocate when others have taken the time to leave a generous comment on their own blog.
To control who DOES visit, select "Always" under the Comment Moderation option, and insert an e-mail where notification for pre-screening can be mailed.
Thank you for your co-operation.
I myself, have made every effort to add your blogs to my sidebar, and would be appreciative of the same for mine. I would also welcome any new "Followers", if you've found my posts of interest.
Now to next week's business. Below are the preview photos for the coming two weeks. No more uniforms!!!
Make sure you check in on the weekend to keep up with all the current postings from fellow Sepia Saturday participants. You won't want to miss anyone's interpretation of the photo below:
