Sepia Saturday 355 : 18th February 2017

FEEDING THE PIGEONS : THE ROYAL LIBRARY, DENMARK (FLICKR COMMONS)
This week on Sepia Saturday we are feeding the pigeons and, as this is Sepia Saturday, we are also feeding our collective imaginations as well. All you need to do to participate in our Sepia Festival is to do the usual - look, think, and link : look at the theme image, think about photos from your own collection that might fit in with the theme, and then link your post to the Linky List below. Post your post on or before Saturday 18th February 2017. Here is a quick preview of what is coming up in the next couple of weeks:

Sepia Saturday 354 : Saturday 11 February 2017


The title of our Sepia Saturday theme image this week is the undoubtedly descriptive, but nevertheless rather dull, "Assistant Niki Vasilikis in John M. Gonatos' curio shop in Tarpon Springs, Florida" It comes from the Flickr stream of the archives of the State Library of Florida. The title might be dull but there is nothing dull about either the photograph or the shop. Most Sepians should be able to find some element of inspiration somewhere on the crowded shelves. Simply post your post on or around Saturday 11th February 2017 and add a link to the list below. Before you go browsing the curio shelves, here is a preview of what is in store for the next couple of Saturdays.

SEPIA SATURDAY 351 : 21 January 2017


Marilyn has set us an interesting challenge this week by giving us as our theme image two pictures of the same woman at different stages of her life. The photographs are of the Danish artist Bertha Wegmann and both photographs are featured on the Flickr Commons stream of the Royal Library of Denmark (PHOTO 1 / PHOTO 2). According to the Flickr description, Wegmann lived from 1833-1891, but this can't be the case as the photographs clearly don't fit into such a timeframe. Double checking her Wikipedia biography, it appears she lived from 1846-1926. 

As usual all you need to do is to interpret the theme in any way you want to and post your post on or around Saturday 21st January 2017 and add a link to the list below. Here is our usual preview of what is awaiting us over the next couple of weeks.

SEPIA SATURDAY 350 : 14 January 2017

Musee McCord Museum : Alexander Ramsay's Paint Store, Recollet Street, Montreal, QC, 1868
PICTURE ONE  :  PICTURE TWO
There was a time when the achievement of a significant anniversary (yes, this is Sepia Saturday 350!) would be marked by the publication of a book or at least the creation of a commemorative mug; but Sepia Saturday is now such an established part of life, we treat such things with alacrity. You can, however, mark SS350 by puzzling out this week's prompt which has been provided by Marilyn. She has kindly provided us with a few words of explanation:

Using a technique beloved of Mr Mike, we focus in on one small part of the big picture. We’ve done something similar before and it really makes you think and look at the details You can choose any detail you like not just the one selected, or replicate the idea with one of your own photographs.

I will say no more ..... other than post your posts on or around Saturday 14th January 2017 and add a link to the list below.

Before you do that, take a look at what is around the Sepia corner. Here are our prompts for the next two weeks.



That's it. Jump to it! Get posting your sepia posts.
