Sepia Saturday 540 : 3 October 2020


I know it might seem a little late for a holiday (to those readers in the Southern Hemisphere please read as "I know this might seem a little early for a holiday"), but ... it's a strange world we live in now and you have to take your opportunities where you can. The seasons turn remorselessly, but so does our trip through the alphabetical Sepia Saturday theme images and we have worked our way around for H is for Holiday. Just in case you are fed up with sun-hats, beach-balls, and sand between your toes, please feel free to pick your own H for a theme this week. You might have an old photo of a horse, a house or a hula hoop - whatever it is just include it in a post, and post your post on or around Saturday 3 October 2020, and add a link to the list below.

And while we are sat here in the sun, thinking about as little as possible, lets take a look at what comes next on Sepia Saturday:-

Sepia Saturday 539 : Saturday 26 September 2020

As you may have worked out, I am doing the alphabet thing again (after putter theme images together for ten years, you need some artificial stimulus!). So last week was F (for fire) and this week is G for groups. The group in question is a photograph with a caption on the reverse which reads "Sidney and the Gand, Christmas 1954, British Army on the Rhine". The Sidney in question is the happy smiling chap in the centre of this particular group, and is also my wife's cousin. It's a typical throw-away group photo, but it is full of life and drama and history. The pints of beer, the couple kissing, the looks on the faces of the young men a long way away from home, it's a classic of its type.

Sepia Saturday 539 (post your posts on or around Saturday 26 September 2020) gives you an opportunity to feature your group classics. Simply post your posts and add a link to the list below. And whilst I have you all here, grouped together, let me show you what H and I will bring:-

Sepia Saturday 538 : 19 September 2020


You know what it's like when I fire burns out of control: you start with a billycan gently boiling the water for your tea, your attention is distracted, and the next thing you know half of New South Wales is on fire! It's the same with Sepia Saturday. To start with, you have your theme image gently boiling away, ready to be shared with the waiting world, then you are called upon to keep an eye on your two year old grandson, and the next thing you know you are scrubbing carpets and trying to get strawberry jam out of your hair. This is by way of me apologising for letting things get a little behind with Sepia Saturday 537. Now, I am a reformed character, putting the prompt image up on a Monday so that whatever happens people can submit their Sepia Saturday posts in plenty of time for Sepia Saturday 538 (post your posts on or around Saturday 19th September 2020)

And if you want a little distraction while you are waiting for the fire to take hold, take a look at what is to come over the next week or two.

Sepia Saturday 536 : 5 September 2020

Fathers and daughters, mothers and daughters: yes, we have reached letter D in our alphabetical trawl through the theme images. Our theme photo features the American businessman and art collector, Solomon Guggenheim and his daughter, Barbara Josephine Guggenheim. For your Sepia Saturday post, you can follow the daughters, follow the "D's", or - as always - do whatever you choose. All we need is an old photo and a few words. Post your posts on or around Saturday 5th September 2020 and add a link to the list below.
