Sepia Saturday 701 : 2nd December 2023

It's December and it's cold and dark (my apologies to readers in the Southern Hemisphere where it will probably be warm and light) and therefore it is time to be heading indoors. Our Sepia Saturday theme for December is "indoors", and our first week theme image is such an archetypical indoor scene - a parent and child reading together. If you are of a certain age you will recognise the scene, recognise the clothes, and recognise the furniture - they all proclaim life indoors. So come on in and join in with Sepia Saturday. Just post your post on or around Saturday 2nd December 2023 and add a link to the list below. And whilst you are sat down in the warmth, take a look at what else will be happening during Sepia December:-

Sepia Saturday 700 : 25 November 2023


It's the last of our November Sepia Saturday prompts - the last time we will be walking about. Our interpretation of the monthly theme this week features a group of unemployed workers walking from Jarrow in the North-East of England to London in 1936. You can reflect the theme in any way you want, just post your post on or around Saturday 25th November 2023 and add a link to the list below. And once I have stopped walking about, I will let you have the weekly themes for December. Our general theme for that month is "Indoors".

Sepia Saturday 699 : Saturday 18th November 2023

Now we are out walking about and enjoying ourselves, let's cross over. And there is no safer way to do it than to find a policeman to stop the traffic and help you safely to the other side. You can get to the other side of this week's Sepia Saturday challenge by sharing an old photograph - it can be on the theme of walking about or it can be about anything you want). Just do it on or around Saturday 18th November 2023 and add a link to the list below. And take a look at what is coming around the corner, next on Sepia Saturday.

Sepia Saturday 698 : Saturday 11 November 2023


For our second week of walking about on Sepia Saturday, our theme image looks at people walking on the street - more specifically on Westmorland Street, Dublin in 1902. Many of you will have similar "walking snaps" in your collection and this week you have an opportunity to get them out and share them with other enthusiasts. Or, there again, you can simply share any old photograph you would like to share. Whatever you choose, post your posts on or around Saturday 11th November 2023 and add a link to the list below. And pause for a moment to look in a shop window - or look at what Sepia Saturday has to offer for the rest of the month.

Sepia Saturday 697 : Saturday 4th November 2023


It's Walking About month here on Sepia Saturday where we are offering you the opportunity to showcase your old photographs that somehow may intersect with the theme of walking about. As always, you can interpret the theme as creatively as you like, or ignore it altogether. Our theme image for the first week in November features a 1930s photograph of someone walking a cat! Stranger things have happened - and invariably do here on Sepia Saturday. Just post your posts on or around Saturday 4th November 2023 and add a link to the list below. Whilst you are walking about, you might want to cast a glance at our next few theme images.
