Sepia Saturday 312 : Saturday 9th January 2016


Now, what on earth is going on here? What we do know is that the photograph - which is our Sepia Saturday theme image this week - comes from the Flickr Commons collection of Miami University Library. The title is "Push ball competition at Miami University freshman-sophomore contest 1910", but I, for one, have no idea what push ball is! But with Sepians all over the world following our weekly theme prompts, no doubt someone will have some explanation of this strange scene. I have no idea which direction to push you in when thinking of ways of linking this photograph to one of the old images in your collections - but those Sepians all over the world have a knack of finding the most obscure links between a large bouncing ball and, for example, a photograph of Uncle Jack in his bowler hat.

Whatever bounce of the ball your choose to follow (or, if you so prefer, not follow) all you need to do is to post your post on or around Saturday 9th January 2016 and link it to the list below. Before you do that, take a look at what is waiting around the corner.


But all of that is in another ball park, for the moment let us keep our eye on the ball that is Sepia Saturday 312.

Wow, now this deserves a bouncy-ball breaking of a post! Very interesting.

I went with "pushing." I'm desperate, Folks!

Little Nell said...

I turned to stone - not literally!

It looks like a fun game; mine has been played by Kings.

That's a very big ball and I think I might have the sticks that go along with it. And music too.

Big balls for small people feature in my blg this week, plus one that dwarfs us all.

Alan Burnett said...

Why is it that we Englishmen get obsessed with the shape and size of balls. I think it is a class thing.

By the skin of my teeth...football photos from Orange and Rozelle.

I would think this game would lead to several slaps in the face and black eyes. LOL! But probably not any worse than football, I guess.

Earth Balls were popular in New games, along with my friends we played with them at Earth Day celebrations (in the 70s)

I saw a round object (which I think is this quarter's theme) and went with that!

It is amazing as to how many round things there are that are hanging around. I am glad I could post again this time.

No balls but another unidentified old photo of children

I had to stretch a bit before I tackled this sporting post. :)
