Every week they post an old photograph, and participants are supposed to use it as a prompt and reflect upon an old photograph (or photographs) from their collection that in some way correspond(s) to a theme associated with the original.
I like the challenge of finding a photographic companion to their prompt. I can see that I am occasionally going to have to get a bit creative. At least they give previews for the following two weeks, which gives some time to allow the creative juices to flow.
I know one question in some reader's mind: Wait, it isn't Saturday yet!
I am posting this at midnight GMT. While it is six hours earlier where I am, the host of Sepia Saturday and several participants are "across the pond." Several participants are likely to have jumped in even earlier. Even though I posted on Wednesday last week, I was still the sixth participant.
Here's this week's photographic prompt:
Here's my response:
This is a photograph of my maternal grandfather, Martin Deutsch, from 1972, when he was 65. I was 3 years old at the time, so while I've seen pictures, I never knew him as a younger man. That's the way it is with grandfathers. However, he was very active. Not only did he ride bicycles, he lifted weights, bowled, jogged in circles around his basement, and in the winter shoveled snow.
Here's a photograph of him from 1942, during his war service. He was stationed in the Middle East and Africa.
A jeep isn't too much different from a bicycle. Both are 'open air' modes of transport. Different number of wheels.
In both of my photographs, there are trees, and grass. Something noticeably absent from the prompt.
