Our sepia friend Postcardy suggested statues and monuments as a theme for this week and also pointed us in the direction of this 1914 photograph of the Jefferson Statue in Columbia (which is taken from the Library of Congress collection on Flickr Commons). Photographers of all ages and all times have always been drawn to statues : there is nothing like a mounted equestrian hero or a stone-clad voluptuous heroine to get the camera shutters clicking. So for Sepia Saturday 220 (post your posts on or around Saturday 22 March 2014) all you have to do is to highlight an old photograph which in any convoluted way fits in with the theme image and tell us a little about it. Post your post, link your link, visit your visitors and help make Sepia Saturday a monument to blogging nostalgia.
But before you adopt a frozen stance for eternity, take a look at what is around the sepia corner for the next couple of weeks:
221 - 29 March 2014 : Floods, water, the weather, floating cars, sepia skies : the choice is yours.
Not trying to be first, but I'm away for a few days from early tomorrow, so here's my contribution which I hope you enjoy, including several links.
We don't have any statues in Soulsbyville, soooo . . .
I have postcards of Abraham Lincoln statues.
The story of a bridge, with a statue in the picture as well. Or vice versa.
Statues, impressive facades ... is that enough?
A little piece of Atlantic provinces notables.
No statue, just some family memories that came to mind when I saw the statue of Thomas Jefferson.
More colour photos than sepia this week!
...completely off theme, yet perhaps animals and kids standing like statues? These are thoroughly modern photos in my more recent archives, not sepia at all.
No sepia, but the statues and their subjects are old.
Nine statues, really...you'll see!
The old Detroit County building. Photos taken by Henry Cleage about 1949.
Photography makes statues of all of us. My thought for the day.
My offer this weekend is a mystery statue with trombones.
A theme right up my street, with Presdients, leaders of men and sporting heroes commemorated in Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders.
Step on over to my blog for a luck pair of shoes!
The song came first and the statue followed - The Road to Gundagai and its dog sitting on a tuckerbox
My contribution is a weird procession that doesn't move.
Statues from someone else's memories. I've never seen them in person.
I joined the Merry Men for this post.
I almost didn't get in this round, but then I was attacked by a dose of adventure and presto, I'm in too!
Thanks Postcardy for the inspiration photo! Sorry everyone that I'm very late to the party, but I hope you'll stop by to see what from my childhood has been my Dublin obsession, the wingéd angels of the O'Connell monument. Cheers,
Picked up on the statues theme this week with a few vintage postcards of London's statues.
Better late than never! Too busy celebrating my brother's 50th birthday interstate.
