Once again hats feature in our Sepia Saturday theme image, but this week let's take our hats off and see what else there is in the picture. Well there is a telescope and there is a mountain and there are three great composers (yes Mike Brubaker, your Christmas and Birthday have come all at once!). The picture, which was taken around 1900, shows Julius Röntgen, Frants Beyer & Edvard Grieg on Mount Løvstakken in Norway. If all that music and that weighty telescope is not enough for you, you might want to note that as well as composing music, Frants Beyer was also a tax inspector and therefore you might want to scan your grandad's tax returns and submit them to the Sepia Exchequer. However you decide to interpret this fine old photograph (which comes from the collection of Bergan Public Library on Flickr Commons), just post your post on or around Saturday 1 March 2014, link it to the list below and take a look to see what else you can see on the Sepia Saturday Blog.
But first of all take a look at what is coming in the weeks ahead:
Sepia Saturday 218 - 8 March 2014 : Fences, backyards and Bubonic Plague are amongst the possible themes from this prompt (With thanks to Wendy Mathias).
Sepia Saturday 219 - 15 March : Domes, ceilings, arches, significant buildings (Again with thanks to Wendy Mathias - and if anyone else has suggestions for themes let me have them, preferably copyright-free images)
So, to the haunting refrains of the Peer Gynt Suite, get out your sepia telescopes and see what you might have to offer for Sepia Saturday 217.
