Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers to share family history through old photographs.
This week’s Sepia Saturday photo is a theme-packed image suggesting bikes, flags, tents, instruments, and more. While there are certainly lots of “things” in the picture to inspire a respectable response, it’s the implied back-story of Guys and Gals having fun that resonates with me.
I wish I knew the story behind these photos.
They were in an envelope with a lot of miscellaneous snapshots belonging to my mother. I don’t recognize anyone, so I don’t think these are her friends from Cradock High School. The brazen display of cigarettes suggests these are the college years. Yet, I do not see Momma in the photos. Perhaps they were sent by her ol’ beau at Davidson College.
Homecoming festivities? A fraternity party?
Guys and Gals just having fun.
Aside from the crazy antics on display in these photos, the 2-images-for-the-price-of-one intrigues me. Maybe Brett Payne will come along and tell me all about the photographic process that resulted in 2 small images on one deckle-edged photo.
Please visit Sepia Saturday to see the various and sundry ways my friends have been inspired this week.
