SEPIA SATURDAY 350 : 14 January 2017

Musee McCord Museum : Alexander Ramsay's Paint Store, Recollet Street, Montreal, QC, 1868
PICTURE ONE  :  PICTURE TWO
There was a time when the achievement of a significant anniversary (yes, this is Sepia Saturday 350!) would be marked by the publication of a book or at least the creation of a commemorative mug; but Sepia Saturday is now such an established part of life, we treat such things with alacrity. You can, however, mark SS350 by puzzling out this week's prompt which has been provided by Marilyn. She has kindly provided us with a few words of explanation:

Using a technique beloved of Mr Mike, we focus in on one small part of the big picture. We’ve done something similar before and it really makes you think and look at the details You can choose any detail you like not just the one selected, or replicate the idea with one of your own photographs.

I will say no more ..... other than post your posts on or around Saturday 14th January 2017 and add a link to the list below.

Before you do that, take a look at what is around the Sepia corner. Here are our prompts for the next two weeks.



That's it. Jump to it! Get posting your sepia posts.

It's raining in California and we're happily stuck inside writing Sepia Saturdays.There are no complaints around here about rainy days! It's supposed to continue all week. Not only are we happy, our avocado trees are beaming.

Windows on life is my theme, with memories of family and holidays.

Do you remember that kindergarten song you used to sing? Look for it.

I immediately thought of burglary but there might have been a more innocent explanation for the man doing out of the window. I think the idea of focussing on one small part of the picture is a good one. For example, often it s the things in the background which become more interesting over the years when reviewing family snapshots.

Today I share early film tricks, that include hanging on the sides of building with windows. Please click on the links and enjoy!

Oh you all are way more clever than I am. I'm using details to help identify people in an old photo.

I felt challenged to come up with a window photo and I think I've got a good one. Musical of course.

You would think the chap would be busy enough this week, but no - he can't miss an opportunity to feature on Sepia Saturday.
