So here we go with the second of our experimental monthly Sepia Saturday prompts - and this month it is work and play. Our theme image features a young mill girl turning her back on the loom she is supposed to be minding and gazing out of the mill window and, perhaps, thinking of the fields or the river where she should be playing. Our August brace of themes - love and marriage - were said by Jimmy Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn to "go together like a horse and carriage", but you might challenge the assertion that work and play have such a symbiotic relationship. This is a Sepia Saturday theme, however, rather than a philosophical discourse and therefore all you need to do is to provide us with an old image and a few words that is some convoluted way relates to either work or play or any combination of the two.
In line with our new experimental rules you can post as many times as you like throughout the month - simply link the posts to the list below and number them 1/2/3 or whatever. Keep your feedback coming in terms of how you like this new approach: all I can say is that it makes things a lot easier for me. If we decide to continue the monthly approach I will post an advanced call for October in a couple of weeks time. In the meantime, if you have any theme suggestions (it doesn't have to be a couplet "x and y" but that might be a useful approach until we get used to things) then let me know.
Here is a quick preview of our call for October (thank you Sue for the suggestion)
