Sepia Saturday 551 : Christmas & New Year 2020


So here it is - Merry Christmas. S in the Sepia Saturday alphabet takes us to Seasonal Greetings ... and Powers of Waterford for Seeds and Trees. This is our Christmas and New Year prompt for 2020, so you can add your contributions at any time over the next couple of weeks. Just post a post and add a link to the list below.

And that takes us to 2021. What kind of Sepia Saturday do we want for next year? Is it time we called it a day? Are blogs a thing of the past and do we need to move our efforts to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Do we carry on just as we have been doing for the last 150 years? Let me know what you think, I will be happy to do whatever people think is best.

Sepia Saturday 550 : 12 December 2020

I'm singing in the rain.... which has always seemed to me to be a daft thing to do. If it is raining outside, sensible people stay indoors and flick through their collection of old photographs looking for something beginning with the letter R. If it's got rain in it, run with it, if it has a river, reserve it, if it features a rhinoceros, rescue it from obscurity and share it with your sepia friends. Just choose any old photo, feature it in a post, post your post on or around Saturday 12 December and add a link to the list below.

As usual, we will be having just one prompt for the Christmas and New Year season - here's a preview.

Sepia Saturday 549 : 5 December 2020


When you think about it, Sepia Saturday is a bit like a quilt. Over the years, hundreds of people from around the world have come together to establish a patchwork of old images and memories. Some are very old, some less so. Some are close family, some are distant relatives. Some are brightly coloured, some are in faded sepia. Individually they are all interesting, but together they create something which is more than the sum of its individual parts. That's what I like about Sepia Saturday, it's a collaborative exercise in preserving memories.  Which is nothing more than a long way of saying that our Sepia Alphabet has worked its way around to the letter Q. And Q is for quilts. And queens, and quadrangles, and quays, and quintuplets .... and almost anything else you want it to be for. Just find an old image, add a new explanation and post your post on or around Saturday 5th December 2020.

And whilst you are waiting in the queue, you might want to look at the two remaining prompts for this year. As always, there will be a break over the Christmas and New Year period but we will be back for T in the new year.
