Sepia Saturday 369 : 27 May 2017


Our Sepia Saturday theme image this week shows a man awaiting a delivery, on his guard, ready to strike out. All Sepians will recognise these emotions, they will know exactly what it is like waiting to find out what kind of ball will be delivered. This is exactly what Sepians feel like each week as they wait for the theme image to be published : ready, aware, expectant, senses stretched as taut as a violin string. And then the delivery is made and our hero strikes out and hits the ball out of the stadium - a perfect match for a perfect prompt. 

Whatever your response to this prompt might be, hit us with it on or around Saturday 27th May 2017 and add a link to your post to the list below. As you run between the bases, you might want to look ahead at what awaits you over the next couple of weeks.

Sepia Saturday 368 : 20 May 2017


Thank you Marilyn for reminding me to put the prompt up. Unfortunately I am just about to go out and I am away all day tomorrow! I will return and polish the prompt up before the weekend, but for the time being you will have to make do with the bare minimum.

Sepia Saturday 367 : 13 May 2017


Bob's Love Affair (Cinema 1915)- New York Public Library


Cinema still images are a wonderful photographic sub-genre. Designed to tempt you into the cinema, they need to set a scene and provide potential cinema-goers with a sample of the drama, the costumes and the stars they will see if only they buy a ticket. Our theme image for this week is a classic example - it is a still from the 1915 film "Bob's Love Affair". You can, of course, interpret the theme as you want - there is love, there are looks, there are hats and canes and there are costumes. Do with them as you will. The only regulation is that we would like you to do it on or around Saturday 13th May 2017 and post a link to your post on the list below.

Whilst we are loading the second reel, why not enjoy an ice cream or some popcorn and take a look at what is being featured next week and the week after.

Sepia Saturday 366 : 6th May 2017



By the time you will be reading this I will not be here - I will be off on my holidays, hanging out at some smart and sophisticated restaurant with the Mediterranean waves lapping up on my crocodile skinned shoes. I may be eating caviar on toast or snacking on a stuffed olive (those who know me well will know what nonsense this is - I will be having egg and chips and a pint of beer). The last thing I will be thinking about is what to submit for my Sepia Saturday post, but you lot have no excuse. Take a look at the theme image and post a post and link it to the list below, on or about Saturday 6th May 2017. And then take a look at what is on the menu for later on.
