Sepia Saturday 246 : 20 September 2014

Brebner Children (Circa 1900) : From the Provincial Archives of Alberta - Via Flickr


Things are slowly but steadily improving here in Sepia Towers and a couple more weeks and a little time in the sun might see me back in circulation. When we do venture into the recuperative sun I doubt whether we will be staying under canvas, but I hope we are as happy as this trio of happy campers. For the themers in the sepia tent, there are lots of possibilities - children, tents, fences, fields, poppies, smocks, or even sailor-suits again. And, as always, you can pitch your tent in the non-theming section of the campsite and go with any old photograph you like. Just post your post on or around the 20th September 2014 and link it to the list below.

Before you hammer those Sepia tent poles into the ground take a look at what is to come during the next couple of weeks.

247 : Motorbikes, pillions, uniforms, couriers, turban, tents (again), towels

248 : The little guy, package from home, magazine covers

So there we go. It's time to open the picnic basket in the great Sepia Tent of Memories. It's time for Sepia Saturday 246.

Posting early this week as I am off to England tomorrow. My blog is a tribute to my late mother Jean.

Tents of all shapes and sizes in different places and made of all sorts of stuff.

A little longer than my usual posts, but a story that needs to be told.

Bel said...

A cute tent from the 1920s!

3 children: 2 boys and 1 girl - even that matches the photo prompt!

I'm going to have problems with tents two weeks in a row.

I have been a bad boy and skipped Sepia Saturday a few times. I am back today and hope to keep up.

My post is about Girl Scout camp tents.

I've managed to stay on theme this week. Haven't thought of tents in years, so this has been fun!

Karen S. said...

My post is all about, what could be better than a tent?

Mike Brubaker said...

Another great Sepia theme image that lets me tell a story of three musical children with sailor suits and more.

I've ignored the tent and the children and gone with the garden.

The tents in our life

Amazing! I'm on time this week rather than in relaxed camping mode.

Dakota Boo said...

I'm back after a few month's doing other stuff. Picked up on the poppy theme today. Happy Sepia Saturday everyone.

A tent used by a business.

Way off theme, but on theme for what I'll be doing today.

Doug Peabody said...

Way off topic today...
But it's been said, that's okay :)

Things seem very tents around here.

And just when I thought I'd exhausted my family photo trove... ("Trove" is a word one doesn't usually hear uncoupled from "treasure," is it? Hmm. Not to be confused with "toves," as in "slithy.")

Late to the party, but I've brought my tent!
