SEPIA SATURDAY 351 : 21 January 2017


Marilyn has set us an interesting challenge this week by giving us as our theme image two pictures of the same woman at different stages of her life. The photographs are of the Danish artist Bertha Wegmann and both photographs are featured on the Flickr Commons stream of the Royal Library of Denmark (PHOTO 1 / PHOTO 2). According to the Flickr description, Wegmann lived from 1833-1891, but this can't be the case as the photographs clearly don't fit into such a timeframe. Double checking her Wikipedia biography, it appears she lived from 1846-1926. 

As usual all you need to do is to interpret the theme in any way you want to and post your post on or around Saturday 21st January 2017 and add a link to the list below. Here is our usual preview of what is awaiting us over the next couple of weeks.

SEPIA SATURDAY 350 : 14 January 2017

Musee McCord Museum : Alexander Ramsay's Paint Store, Recollet Street, Montreal, QC, 1868
PICTURE ONE  :  PICTURE TWO
There was a time when the achievement of a significant anniversary (yes, this is Sepia Saturday 350!) would be marked by the publication of a book or at least the creation of a commemorative mug; but Sepia Saturday is now such an established part of life, we treat such things with alacrity. You can, however, mark SS350 by puzzling out this week's prompt which has been provided by Marilyn. She has kindly provided us with a few words of explanation:

Using a technique beloved of Mr Mike, we focus in on one small part of the big picture. We’ve done something similar before and it really makes you think and look at the details You can choose any detail you like not just the one selected, or replicate the idea with one of your own photographs.

I will say no more ..... other than post your posts on or around Saturday 14th January 2017 and add a link to the list below.

Before you do that, take a look at what is around the Sepia corner. Here are our prompts for the next two weeks.



That's it. Jump to it! Get posting your sepia posts.

The Return Of Sepia Saturday Weekly


Here are a few words of introduction to the return of the weekly Sepia Saturday prompt. In order to make things a little easier for me, I have moved away from the hand-crafted prompt banner to a more easily produced prompt image with a superimposed Sepia Saturday week number. I will post the weekly image each week (hopefully on a Monday) along with a look ahead at the two weekly prompts after the current one. 

Sepia Saturday is all about images and their interpretation and therefore it is only right and proper that the weekly prompt should be an image and you should be free to interpret it in whatever way you want.  You don't really need suggestions from me, it is far more fun to search within the image for a thread you want to follow or a theme you want to explore (the connection can be as convoluted and esoteric as you like).

Each week you will be provided with the theme image for that week, a preview of the next two theme images, and the usual Linky List to sign up to.  Good luck.
