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:-

My transcending images are from Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps -- showing the evolution of my Italian ancestors' home and business.

I have missed out for a few weeks and am waaaay behind in my alphabet posts. I did Q for today! I may try to get R done this weekend too. Sorry I haven't replied to your lovely comments to my last post. I'll try catch up on writing, reading, and responding!

Something happens when you click the shutter of a camera, and it doesn't matter if it is a Kodak Brownie or an iPhone 12 - a moment is captured along with a bag full of emotions.

A mishmash of sepia photos. I bring you some ladies and gentlemen from a long time ago, and family members from my youth.

This was a challenging theme, but I think I have a pretty good match since I've included examples of several early films. Musical and partly fictional too.

Back in the days of movie cameras instead of cell phones!
