For Sepia Saturday 167 we are beside a river or a bay. There are trees, houses, a pier and a steamer. There is also a powerful clue to the exact location because etched into the emulsion of the glass plate negative is the word "Mosman". Mosman is a suburb of Sydney Australia and in this picture we see it as it was about 100 years ago, long before it was absorbed into the growing city. The photograph is part of the collection of the Powerhouse Museum which has been made available via Flickr Commons. Our thanks to Sepian Kathy Matthews for suggesting this as our theme image for this week. You might want to go with boats, water, steamers, piers or writing on photographs : or you might want to paddle your photographic boat in an entirely different direction. This is Sepia Saturday, the choice is yours. All you need to do is to post your post on or around Saturday 9th March 2013 and then add a link to the list below.
And here is our usual preview of what is in store over the next couple of weeks.
168 : Nominated by Sepian John Newmark, this photograph of the Potsdam Conference could make you think of meetings, round tables, famous events, photographers being photographed or almost anything else.
169 : Nominated by Sepian Postcardy, here is a picture of lots of people taking photographs of cherry blossom in Washington. There are all sorts of possibilities here : blossom, monuments, photographers being photographed (again).
