Sepia Saturday 397 : 9 December 2017


Our Sepia Saturday theme image this week features a small boy and a large fish. The identity of the boy is unknown (and, come to think of it, the precise identity of the fish is also unknown) but the photograph was seemingly taken at the Bon Echo Inn, in the Bon Echo Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada. The photograph forms part of the Flickr Commons Stream of the Cloyne & District Historical Society. As usual, you can interpret the prompt in any way you want, all you need to do is to post your post on or around Saturday 9th January 2017 and link it to the list below.

Whilst you are waiting for a fish to bite, you might want to have a preview of the remaining prompt images for 2017.



And just in case you have to wait a long time for a fish to bite, you could even have a look at the image prompts for January 2018 which are now available HERE. Happy Fishing!

Sepia Saturday 396 : 2 December 2017


Our Sepia Saturday theme image for this week is one of my own photographs which was taken back in the 1960s. It features market stalls in Brighouse, a typical small Yorkshire town. If you are looking for potential themes you can go with markets, vegetables or even headscarves. There is, however, one odd thing about this photograph which makes it a little bit spooky - and you may choose to go with that as a theme. It is one of my negatives, taken with one of my cameras - and, indeed, I can even remember taking it even though it was fifty years ago: but on careful examination, that young lad looking at some of the market produce on the right of the photograph appears to be me! To have taken the photograph and appeared in it must make this one of the earliest selfies!

Whatever theme you go with (or without - as always, the choice is yours), simply post your post on or around Saturday 2nd December 2017 and link it to the list below. As Christmas is just around the corner, here are the remaining themes for the rest of the year so that you have plenty of time to plan ahead.

Sepia Saturday 395 : 25 November 2017


I may have been away for a week or two, but if there is anything guaranteed to get me on the first plane back to Yorkshire, and the first plane back to Sepia Saturday, it is the sight of a group of chaps sat around with bottles of ale. Our theme image comes courtesy of a glass plate negative dating from the last decade of the nineteenth century, which forms part of the Flickr Commons collection of the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney, Australia. Of course you don't have to follow the beer prompt, there are many other potential themes bottled up within this fine old photograph. All you have to do is to post a post featuring an old photograph on or around Saturday 25th November 2017 and then link it to the list below. Cheers!

Here is a preview of our next couple of theme images.

Our Sepia Saturday theme image this week features all those elements of a great Victorian or Edwardian studio photograph - a beautiful woman, an elegant dress and some lovely flowers - all set against a fine studio back-cloth. You can match all of these elements, some of them, or some elements of your own choosing. All you have to do is to post your post on or around the 18th November 2017 and link it to the list below.

And here is a quick look at what awaits you on the next couple of weeks on Sepia Saturday.
