Sepia Saturday 100: Thanks for the Memories!


When Alan Burnett and Kat Mortensen launched Sepia Saturday 100 weeks ago, their expectations were for a short run, perhaps through the Christmas holidays. One hundred weeks later, Sepia Saturday is still going strong thanks to the inspirational photos that Alan finds each week. The collage consists of the photographs that have inspired 25-35 bloggers to share their own photos, memories and stories each week. It was a joy to see the photographs that came before I started with Sepia Saturday 89.  Here's to another 100 weeks!  Thank you Kat and Alan!

For other images and stories inspired by 100, check out Sepia Saturday 100.

Update:

video
Unfortunately, the collage does not allow you to enjoy the images used in its creation. This video is nearly 11 minutes in length and features 93 of the 100 Sepia Saturday photos. Small image sizes were used in the hope that it would facilitate viewing, but it does make for rather small images that are best not viewed full screen. A few images were no longer available online. The video is set to 'Brilliante,' from Claude Bolling's Suite for Chamber Orchestra and Jazz Piano Trio.  A fitting theme for the brilliant idea behind Sepia Saturday. True to form, Sepia Saturday has me trying new things!

  7. Wonderful, creative idea to include all those photos. I wish I could enlarge it even more to see all of them.

  12. Christine, champagne sounds great - but perhaps toasting with a pint would be more in keeping with SS!

    Nancy, I've added a movie of the images, my first attempt and the images are a bit on the small side still for viewing. But, at least you can get some idea of the images. I'm trying again with larger photo sizes.

  17. Visiting via your Interveiw on GeneaBlogger where I enjoyed reading about how you started Attics and Old Lace. How I'd love to find one, too. I have heard of Sepia Saturday and will visit there as well. I too love vintage photos and am fortunate to have some from my Great Grandmothers Photo Album which I have been posting about recently. I think you might enjoy some of the posts and certainly the photos. I will be following your blog with interest. Again congratulations on your GeneaBlogger Interview with Gini.
