When I first chose the theme image for Sepia Saturday 179, I thought to myself, "we've never had birds, beasts and reptiles" before; but of course I was wrong. A quick check of the list kept by Marilyn and available on the Sepia Saturday Facebook page, and I discover that we've had tortoises (164), elephants (133), cats (130), cattle (127), dogs (111), rabbits (71) and even a camel (70)! If you have completely run out of animals, you might like to follow the caravans, or climb up the steps, or even hide in the wooden barrel. Whatever potential theme you highlight from our archive image (which comes from the Tyne and Wear Archives and Museum Collection on Flickr Commons), all you need to do is to post your post on or around Saturday 1st June 2013 and then add a link to the list below.
But before you fly away to do that (or, if you are a reptile, slither away and do that), you might like to take a look at the theme images that are just around the corner.
180 : Our picture features a hospital kitchen on a railway train, thus providing Sepians with a vast menu of theme opportunities.
181 : Time to open your jewellery case and dig out some sparkling images. We're looking for any bodily adornments: from girls with pearl earrings to gents with an impressive medal collection (or vice versa!).
But such things are for the future. This week it is the turn of the birds .... and the beasts .... and the reptiles.
