Sepia Saturday 288 : 18 July 2015


Nobody could ever accuse Sepia Saturday of failing to challenge its followers. It would be so easy to give you an old photograph of a hat and suggest that the theme for Sepia Saturday 288 was "hats" and all you needed to do was to seek out any old photos featuring hats. But hats are easy and here on Sepia Saturday we don't do easy. So prompted by a photo we found on the Flickr Commons collection of the National Library of Ireland, we found ourselves thinking "we've never had pigs before". So pigs it is, or possibly butchers, or shops, or men in aprons .... or hats (well, pigskin hats). Whatever you choose to go with (and there is always the option if you are a craven coward to ignore any theme and just give us any old photograph), all you have to do is to post a post on or around Saturday 18th July 2015 and add a link to the list below.

Before you go looking for a pig in a poke you might want to take a look at what is to come in the weeks ahead.


That's what I like to see - a couple of weeks at the seaside before rushing back in front of the television for the start of the new football season. But forget all those future joys, it is time to bring home the bacon for Sepia Saturday 288.

When pigs fly. That's supposed to mean it will never happen. With these pigs, however, anything is possible. :)

Lovable butcher or dog killer?

This would be an impossible theme for me except for a coincidence of the name Morgan.
