Sepia Saturday 373 : 24 June 2017

 
This is what my dog Lucy dreams of. Mum and Dad going on holiday in a little house on wheels so that she can come along as well and join in all the fun. And by the time you read this, we will indeed be away on holiday. But no little house on wheels, and (let's not tell her just yet), no Lucy. We will be in a nice cosy house and she will be in some nice cosy kennels. Such is life, and such is this week's Sepia Saturday theme image. As usual, just post your post on or around Saturday 24th June and link your post to the list below.

Here is a reminder of what is ahead:-

Sepia Saturday 372 : 17 June 2017


A little lad - a cute little chap - watering a flower he has just planted in a garden. A smile of expectation on his face, a crop of questions in his mind. Will the plant flourish or will it fail? Will the gentle rains of spring and autumn bring it many fecund summers, or will the cold snows of winter stunt its ambitions? As many questions as there are stones in that dry stone wall, as many answers as there are swans in that sky. That is all you are going to get from me in terms of a prompt for Sepia Saturday 372 (post you posts on or around Saturday 17th June). You will need to plant your own post, water it with the cool richness of your imagination, and put it on display by linking it to the list below. 

And here is what lies ahead in the more immediate future.

Sepia Saturday 371 : 10th June 2017


Our theme image this week shows a man with a wooden box. Whoever the man is, he doesn't seem happy with life and maybe that could be a potential theme you would like to explore. There again ,there are boxes, men with bowler hats, and .... boxes. The photograph comes from the Flickr Commons collection of the National Library of Ireland, but for whatever reason it has now been withdrawn from Flickr - perhaps it was making everyone a little too miserable. You don't need to be miserable, of course, all you need to do is post a post on or around Saturday 10th June 2017 and link to the list below. Things get a little happier over the next couple of weeks - here is a preview of the themes.



And just in case you think that Marilyn and I have been sitting back with our feet up doing nothing but constructing wooden boxes, here is proof that we have been busy planning the next three months of Sepia Saturday fun. The is just an overview, of course, but hopefully it is enough to whet your appetite.
