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.

The Return Of Sepia Saturday Weekly


Here are a few words of introduction to the return of the weekly Sepia Saturday prompt. In order to make things a little easier for me, I have moved away from the hand-crafted prompt banner to a more easily produced prompt image with a superimposed Sepia Saturday week number. I will post the weekly image each week (hopefully on a Monday) along with a look ahead at the two weekly prompts after the current one. 

Sepia Saturday is all about images and their interpretation and therefore it is only right and proper that the weekly prompt should be an image and you should be free to interpret it in whatever way you want.  You don't really need suggestions from me, it is far more fun to search within the image for a thread you want to follow or a theme you want to explore (the connection can be as convoluted and esoteric as you like).

Each week you will be provided with the theme image for that week, a preview of the next two theme images, and the usual Linky List to sign up to.  Good luck.

Sepia Saturday : December 2016

We have listened to your views. We have thought long and hard. We have travelled halfway around the world to meet up and decide the future of Sepia Saturday: and we drank a few beers along the way. And these are our suggestions for the next phase of Sepia Saturday:

- From the beginning of December 2016, Sepia Saturday will return to a weekly theme image.
- Each week there will be an image - taken from the collection of old images on Flickr Commons - and it will be up to Sepians to interpret it in their own way. There will be no suggestions, no given subjects - you will be free to interpret the image in whatever way you want to.
- The first of the new calls will go up on Monday 28th November and, as usual, will be accompanied by a Linky List.
- Marilyn has chosen the images for the first four months. Here is a preview of the ones for December:
