Sepia Saturday 205 : 30 November 2013


November comes to an end and all over the world men will be ridding themselves of facial hair as Movember - the annual, month-long event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer and other male cancers - also comes to an end. Our theme image this week comes from the Australian National Maritime Museum collection available via Flickr Commons and features an unknown swimmer with a rather fine moustache. For your theme you can go with swimmers, trophies or rather fine moustaches, or - as always - any interpretation you care to adopt. Just post your post on or around Saturday 30 November 2013 and link your post to the Linky List below.
Some news for those who do not follow our Facebook Group: our special "Best Of Sepia Saturday" book is now finished and just needs a few final checks. Hopefully, by next week, I should be able to let you know how you can order your copies. In other news, the Sepia Saturday Magazine on Flipboard seems to be working well and, if you haven't already done so, you can subscribe to the magazine for free by searching for it under my name (Alan Burnett). You can use the Flipboard App on most tablets and smartphones and on desktops operating Windows 8.1 and above.

Here are the details of the next two Sepia Saturday themes for those who like to shop early for Christmas.


206 : Aprons our our theme for this week. Ladies in aprons, men in aprons, airports with aprons.


207 : Photos with strange compositions, passing cyclists, removal vans, tunnels (look carefully there is one there) - the choice is up to you.

Those are for the future. For this week, keep a stiff upper lip, or a hairy upper lip, or a clean shaved upper lip - and post those posts and link those links.

Ok, so I'm first again. Not trying to be, I'm just ahead of myself on the blog posts! Hope you all enjoy reading about my moustachioed ancestors!

Mike Brubaker said...

Posting early for the holiday, with lots of musical mustaches.

My entry for this week's prompt puzzles through up my long held curiosity about why on earth my great grandmother Maxie Meek Williams would have so many photos of Teddy Roosevelt in the Williams' family photo album.

Men posing with arms folded are most attractive!

Very easy to find moustaches among earlier generations

ScotSue said...

One beard, one moustache and minor sporting success - are amongst my contributions for this week.

Bob Scotney said...

If I had seen Jo's comment first I would have added some 'arms folded' pictures. As it is trophies make up my theme.

Gail Perlee said...

Sorry I had to enter my name twice. I must have keyed in something wrong re: my URL the first time. Anyway, I give you a few generations of 'staches & beards for perusal.

Jackie van Bergen said...

Just a vague hint of a moustache, but lots of singlet tops - and not a trophy in sight (unless you count the ladies!)

Thanks for the inspiration! I really enjoyed drawing together all my fuzzy-faced (male) relatives for this post. As usual it will not appear until tomorrow, but I hope you'll stop by then to see, 'To 'stache or not to 'stache, that is the question!'

Cheers,
Jennifer

I'm thinking of a song from The Village People about this week's prompt.

Boobook said...

Just my grandad this time.

B. Rogers, Living in Black Mountain said...

An ancestress, who hopefully didn't have a mustache!

L. D. said...

I can't believe that I pulled it off getting posted today. I may go back and check my sentence structure as time goes by but this group is a forgiving group. I am glad that I could be with you this day.

Sheila @ A Postcard a Day said...

I found a moustache at the last minute but even struggled with a sporting theme.

Kristin said...

I almost missed this week but Great Great Uncle Ransom's mustache demanded a showing.

I have added my contribution this week -of moustaches and mysteries.
