Welcome to Sepia Saturday 619. Take a seat. Take any seat. Take a photograph of a seat. Take an old photograph of a seat and share it with the world. This is Sepia Saturday - you can do pretty much what you want as long as, somewhere along the line, it involves an old photograph. Do it and share it, on or around Saturday 30th April 2022 and then add a link to the list below. And once you have done that, settle back and look at what is still to come on Sepia Saturday.

The street musicians are entertaining us this week on Sepia Saturday, which means that the theme can be musicians, streets, or - as this is Sepia Saturday and we aren't all that keen on rules - anything you want. Just post your post on or around Saturday 23 April 2022 and add a link to the list below. And then, while you are enjoying the music, take a look at what is around the street corner on Sepia Saturday

Our theme image for Sepia Saturday 611 features a postcard image of the Grosvenor Hotel in London. As usual, you can interpret the theme as you think fit, and you can also totally ignore it and post what interests you. Whatever, you choose, feature it in a post on or around Saturday 5th March 2022 and add a link to the list below.
And whilst you are passing through the hotel lobby, take a look at the images that will feature in our next two Sepia Saturday gatherings.

A Ford Sedan and an unknown man - it has a certain poetical feel to it. Over the centuries poetry has been a means by which people can express their emotions, record their hopes and fears, their achievements and their failures. Equally, for the last 150 or so years, photography has been a means of doing the same thing, so this week for Sepia Saturday we are asking you to contribute your own visual poems. They can be about the love that exists between a man (or woman) and their automobiles ... or indeed anything else. Just share some old photographs and some new thoughts and link your posts to the list below, on or around Saturday 19th February 2022.
Sepia Saturday is an anthology rather than a single visual poem, so here are the next two prompt images for you to think about.

First of all my sincere apologies for missing the Sepia Saturday prompt for last week. It is only the second time I have missed it in twelve years, and I wouldn't mind if I had a good excuse - broken leg/computer/life - but alas the real reason was just that my mind was elsewhere, doing nothing in particular. For our prompt image this week I have chosen one of the collection from the Texas State Archives which is featured on their Flickr Commons stream. Other than stamping their mark on the image, they tell us nothing about it: neither date, place nor subject. So this lady in the library represents all those unknown people and places that feature on our sepia contributions. As usual, all you need to do is to share your sepia contribution, on or near Saturday 12th February 2022, and add a link to the list below.
And here, by popular demand, are the next two Sepia Saturday prompt images so you can plan your posts ahead of time:-

If I did manage to get away to the Dolomites last week - I am writing this a pre-posting it, just in case - I should be getting back to my desk at some stage this coming weekend. So, once again, our Sepia Saturday Header is rather appropriate, and once again, it comes from our "Photo Archive Of The Month" - Camden Public Library in the USA. You can share your old photographs from your desktop to our desktops by posting an old photograph and adding a link to the list below.

Our Sepia Saturday header this week features another image from our "Photo Archive Of The Month" - Camden Public Library in Maine in the USA. The 1899 print features, rather appropriately, two children enjoying the snow. It may be appropriate because - depending on the outcome of a lateral flow test tomorrow - by Saturday I might be tramping through the snow in the Dolomites drawing my grandchildren behind me on a sledge. You need neither a positive or negative test to take part in Sepia Saturday, all that you need is an old photo and a link to the list below.

This January we are featuring in our Sepia Saturday calls, images from the Camden Public Library Collection, which are available on Flickr Commons. This week a charming group of "Miss Garland's Girls" remind us of the joy of old photographs. You can celebrate your old photographs by featuring them in your blog and linking the post to the list below on or around Saturday 8th January 2022.
