Sepia Saturday 265 : 7th February 2015



This week, our Sepia Saturday roadshow rolls into the Finnish city of Helsinki and makes its way to Aalto University where we are making use of their archive of old photographs which are available on Flickr Commons. In particular I have chosen this illustration from a pottery and craft class which dates back to the 1920s and is entitled "ceramic decoration". All sorts of potential themes spring to mind including pots, painting and crafts; but as always we encourage your own individual creativity to link to the image in any way you please, or - if you so wish - not at all. Just post a post on or around Saturday the 7th February and then link to the list below. Before you dash off to throw your pot, take a look at what will be spinning around in the next couple of weeks.


266 : Happy Valentine's Day


267 : Large and Small and Radio Broadcasting

Such things are for the future. Now is the time to get your sepia paintbrush out and create something for Sepia Saturday 265

Ah ha, a theme for which I have lots of photos! My community pottery keeps busy, but looks a bit different from the photo prompt...just a bit!

A short post, but fairly early. I may be getting back into the swing of the Sepian stuff.

I’ve been pushed for time lately but I managed to ‘breathe new life’ into my post this week.

Late and just a little bit off-track.
