Sepia Saturday 338 : 9th July 2016


Our theme image this week features a picture of a walking man which is taken from the collection of the Sepia Saturday Flickr Group. The description is as follows:

"A man walks down a street in Dunfermline, Scotland. We know from the written notation of the reverse of the photograph that the date was the 3rd May 1949. This is not a typical "walking snap" - walking snap photographers plied their trade in seaside resorts and concentrated on happy holidaymakers. The slightly skewed angle of the print suggests that this is an amateur photograph".

As usual, you can go anywhere you want to with the prompt - flat caps, crooked photos, walking men .... whatever. Just post your post on or around Saturday 9th July and link it to the list below. (And take note Alan Burnett, don't forget to link your post this week!). And whilst we are at it, let us take a look ahead and see what is around the Sepia corner.


Looking back at our theme image, there is a certain look of determination in the eyes of the man in the theme photograph. Let us have the same sense of determination in our sepia efforts this week, let us stride forward into a new sepia world, let us throw our flat caps into the sepia air ......

Thanks very much for the inspiration image. It inspired thoughts of photos my mam sent my dad when they were apart in the year they emigrated away from Ireland. Cheers!

I am taking a walk around my Uncle Frank and invite you to join me. (Be warned, he was a big chap so it might be quite a walk)

Lady in a kerchief, I'm going with that. And like Alan, we're going on a walk together.

Could you make a living with it today? Probably not.
