Sepia Saturday 406 : 17 February 2018


SEPIA SATURDAY 406 : Saturday 17 February 2018
SWIMMING : WATER : STANDING AROUND : HANGING AROUND

Like all our February prompt images, the one for Sepia Saturday 406 (post your posts on or around Saturday 17th February) comes from the Flickr Commons collection of the State Library of Queensland. There are the obvious theme possibilities of swimming and water available, but you might also want to investigate the possibilities of standing around and - like the child at the end of the diving board - hanging around. Whatever your choice, post your posts and link them to the list below. 

Here are the next two prompt images so you can think about them in advance.
