Sepia Saturday 275 : 18 April 2015


For Sepia Saturday 275 our tour of the photographic archives participating in the Flickr Commons project reaches the Tasmanian Archives and Heritage Office and, in particular, this image entitled "Hydro Electric Commission (H.E.C.) linemen maintaining electrical services, corner Bathurst and Barrack Streets (c1969)". The theme image might bring all sorts of things to mind - wires, cables, ladders, sky - or you might just want to post an image with a long and complicated title. Whatever you decide to post, post it on or around Saturday 18 April 2015 and leave a link on the list below. 

Before you start your blue sky thinking (grey sky thinking), take a look at what is coming over the next few weeks.

276 : Babies / Newlyweds (not necessary in that order)

277 : Sport / Football / Action

I am following the wires south to where the sky is blue and I will be away for a couple of weeks. I have scheduled the next couple of calls and hopefully they will appear on time (unlike most of my manual calls). If there is a problem Marilyn will, I am sure, intervene. If all else fails you can always give me a ring, but don't be surprised if the lines are all down.

I tried for the sky but ended up mostly all wet.

I have a long story, partly musical and partly on theme, but it's one I believe everyone will finding thrilling.

Comparing the converging lines in the theme photo to a boat.

We better hang on to these memories and photos, because they're going away! Our theme today really is my current life!
