I suspect I am about to be arrested. The charge? False pretences. Pretending to be a sober, reliable, competent, Sepia Saturday administrator when, in truth, I can't even get the weekly call up on time. And when I am arrested, I will be taken away and one of those photographs will be taken, just like the one of Sylvester Hurlbert which comes from the Flickr Commons stream of Tyne and Wear Archives. If you have any criminals in your family background and have photographs of them, then you could post those. Equally, any official photograph would fit this theme and allow you to avoid the charge of posting under false pretences. Indeed any portrait will do and, don't forget, you won't be charged with treason if you ignore the theme and post any old photograph you choose. All you do is to post your post on or around Saturday 9th August and link to the list below.
Before you are led away into the prison cell of sepia contemplation, perhaps you would like to read the charge sheet for the coming weeks.
241 : Writing and Letters
242 : Fans, Faces, national Costumes, Hidden Meanings
Right, that's your exercise time all gone. It's back to your cell. Time to do your time. Time to put your post together for Sepia Saturday 240.
My husband's mugshot - Detroit 1972.
My husband...ID shot.
Villains & just plain bad people!
This was great fun - thanks for the prompt!
As my father liked to say, what one mug can do, another can!
A message of happiness, sent with love.
Thanks for the inspiration! I dug out some great cross-dressing photos I have from the 1900s!
My grandpa, the bootlegger.
Justice might be an underlying theme...and I call out racism, through the charge of "false pretenses."
Handwritten in chalk on a slate was typical for school photographs in Victoria in the 1920's.
Even by my standards, my contribution this weekend is A BIG STORY, but I think everyone will like it. It's a tale of music, crime, and punishment. Don't miss the surprise ending.
Dark memories from my childhood.
I do bang on a bit. No free get out of jail card here I'm afraid!
Oh yes, a double-murder by axe! Oh no!
I'm back after an absence, with a new blog to reflect that there is a life outside Lanzarote!
This post had been published earlier in the year but hadn't been linked to Sepia Saturday until today. Naughty Tom.
Actors showing their mugs on mine :)
There is something a little familiar about my post this week. Yes, I know it is late again - but something else. Look at the first photograph before you read the words and see if you can spot it.
