Sepia Saturday 480 : 27 July 2019

Sorry about the late posting of this call, but it really is hot over here in Britain. Yesterday we had the hottest day on record and when your Sepia Administrator should have been putting up the call post, he headed for the beach instead. Here is a photograph - I will leave it to you to work out which is the administrator. All you need to do is to find an old photo something like the theme image and post it on or around Saturday 27th July 2019, and then add a link to the list below.

Hot as it has been, I have still managed to pull together a full set of theme images for August. Here they are:-

Sepia Saturday 479, 20th July 2019

Now here's a thought. What is going on in this photograph? Why is there a double bass leaning against the side of a tent? Why is there someone kissing a girl? What is on the mind of the chap in the striped jumper? Perhaps the most troubling thought of all is, how can it be that a photograph from the 1980s is now history! Whatever thoughts come into your mind when you view this week's Sepia Saturday prompt, link them to one of your old photographs, include it in a post, and post your post on or around Saturday 20th July 2019 and add a link to the list below.

And if you have time for a second thought, take a look at next week's Sepia Saturday prompt.

Sepia Saturday 478 : Saturday 13th July 2019

I could never be a musician. I would be due to play in a little classical string trio, expected to sound my first crotchet or whatever they are called - and I would be late. The other players would be standing around, rosining up their bows, and I would be down the street, catching up on doing something I should have done three days earlier. Like putting up the Sepia Saturday prompt image! Once again, apologies for being late, hopefully it will not leave you out of tune. Whatever tune you choose to play, play it with an old photograph on or around Saturday 13th July 2019 and then add a link to the list below.

Whilst you are waiting for the other players to start, take a look at what awaits you in Sepia Saturday in the future.

Sepia Saturday 477 : 6 July 2019

This week we have a line of rather nice cars, gathered together in not very nice circumstances. The cars were seized in 1942 by the Canadian Government and were originally the property of Canadian citizens of Japanese origins. For our purposes, they are cars, a line, a road, a telegraph pole, a wet Thursday afternoon - or whatever visual clue you can find in this archive photograph to form the basis of your Sepia Saturday 477 post. When you have identified a potential theme, and posted your post, add a link to the list below. And whilst you are waiting for the motorcade to set off, take a look at the next couple of Sepia Saturday theme images.
