Our theme image for Sepia Saturday 631 comes from the East Riding of Yorkshire Photographic Archives and it is available to us all via the magnificent Flickr Commons initiative. It provides me with a useful opportunity to point lovers of old photographs not just towards Flickr Commons, but also to the establishment of the new Flickr Foundation which will help to move forward the vitally important work of preserving and sharing our collective photographic heritage in the decades to come. If you are not familiar with these recent developments I would urge you to take a few moments to look at the plans and proposals for this new non-profit making Foundation which can be found on their webpage. The Flickr Commons initiative was launched in 2008, just two years before our own Sepia Saturday challenge, and over the last twelve years we have frequently dipped into that wonderful photographic resource pool for inspiration. This week is no exception, and our prompt image features hats, ponies, traps, dogs and horses ... and all manner of other things. Use the image to inspire you and share your inspirations on or around Saturday 23 July 2022, and add a link to the list below. And whilst you are giving the ponies a little rest, take a look at what lies in the future here on Sepia Saturday.
Horse tales from my family.
I don't have many horses in my collection, but I do have one that is particularly talented.
Some sepia photos of various conveyances...mostly on wheels.
My great-aunt Gerda is off travelling to the US again (1936). (Short post this week as I'm just back from my 2022 holiday myself...)
I'm still writing the series about my grandmother, but I made it match, kind of.
I also meant to say that I have been making a concerted effort the past couple of weeks to visit blogs I used to visit regularly - mostly family history blogs. Sadly, some have gone dormant, but certainly not all. And there are some I discovered through looking at your followers lists. As I said, I'm making an effort to visit and also to leave comments. We all know how encouraging it is to have our work read and appreciated. Maybe we can revive some of our former participants, or find new folks to join us.
