Sepia Saturday 585 : 28 August 2021

I must ask for your Understanding. I Underestimated the amount of time left before I needed to put Up the Sepia Saturday prompt image. Under the circumstances, I will Undertake to be on time in future - Unless, of course, I forget again. Oh, and by the way, we have reached the letter U in our tour through the archives. U know the routine by now - post your post on or around Saturday 28th August and add a link to the list below. Here is the rest of the alphabet:-

Sepia Saturday 584 : 21 August 2021

Our Sepia Saturday archive tour has reached the letter T, and where better to stop for tea that with the President of Turkey who has agreed to show us around his archives. With the continuing travel restrictions due to the COVID pandemic, we are, of course, having to do this virtually, and with the help of the Flickr Commons initiative. For our theme image we have chosen a 1930s photograph of a movie screening in the Turkish village of Ballikpinar. This illustrates the power of images - both still images and moving images - to transcend history. In choosing your submission you can transcend history, have a cup of tea, watch a movie, or do almost anything you want to. Just post a post on or around Saturday 21 August 2021 and add a link to the list below. The alphabet is running out, here are the final group of archives stops:-

Busy street, busy times, people out on the streets, mixing together : well, we can dream can't we!

Sepia Saturday 582 : 7 August 2021

Our tour of the archives has taken us to the letter R, and R stands for Riksarkivet - the National Archives of Norway. By a happy coincidence, R also stands for the Rolling Stones, and it is a picture from a Rolling Stones concert that provides us with our theme image this week. Once again it is time to get out your old images, paint them black and white (or sepia), get all the satisfaction you want, and climb onto this sepia cloud of mine. You can go with the stones, go with the r's or go in any direction you want, just post your post on or around Saturday 7th August and add a link to the list below. And here is next week's prompt - T,U,V, W and XYZ will follow shortly.
