Sepia Saturday: Up in Arms


Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers to share family history through old photographs.


This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt is a celebration of dancing. Arms reach high to twirl a partner or to just respond to the music. But there are many other reasons a person’s arms are in the air.

    1. When I went looking for dance photos, I found none except the most current (from the weddings referenced in the last photos), but I started noticing all the arms up.

    1. I never thought about looking for arms raised - they just stood out as I looked for dance photos.
