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.

No baseball, nor even cricket photos exist in my collection - not even ones of determined young men - so I have taken a look at the backdrops that featured on many vintage photographs.

I've been away for many months and my return is completely off topic. Looking forward to reading all the posts this week.

As my Sepia friends know, sometimes I take the theme photo and run with it. My contribution this weekend is another long photo detective story about one of the special photos in my collection but it's one I've wanted to write for some time. Thanks again, Alan and Marilyn, for the perfect image inspiration.

Got whacked in the end at a young age which may explain a lot.
