Sepia Saturday 286 : 4th July 2015


The Smithsonian Museum is the United States National Museum and therefore it is appropriate for Sepia Saturday 286 which falls on the 4th July to feature an illustration from their archives. This call is going up early because I am about to head off to Scarborough - one of the finest holiday and fishing resorts on the Yorkshire coast and therefore it is appropriate for the Smithsonian illustration to be that of a fish. And just in case you are about to tell me that we have had fish as theme images on Sepia Saturday several times before, be warned that I can get quite snappy when provoked and therefore it is appropriate that the fish in question a spot snapper. If you want to be thoroughly appropriate for Sepia Saturday 286 all you have to do is to post your posts on or around Saturday 4th July and add a link to the list below. 

Before you cast around for a suitable image, take a look at what is further down the Sepia Saturday line.



Hope you like all these potential themes - if you do, don't forget to tell me. But, on second thoughts, don't bother as I am merely fishing for compliments.

I've been saving a postcard photo in anticipation of this very theme. Musical but fishy too. Thanks Alan. Enjoy.
