Sepia Saturday

Sepia Saturday Theme Image 390

Hmm. What to search for for this prompt. I suppose I’ll go to Flickr Commons and search “girl posed.”

I did and here’s a few photos I found.

For more inspired nostalgia, click here.

    Your first photo find and the prompt image are an excellent match – there is something very similar about the look and the style.

    A nice gallery, though I too am not so keen on the scantily clad maiden.

    That’s a very photogenic and co-operative dog there in the first photo! It looks like it knows it’s the centre of attention.

    Love this selection of photos down the ages of girls posing. The cock of their heads is similar and they are all center-stage, like the girl in the prompt.

    A very nice mix on the theme. All the girls in that special age of youth and innocence.

    I wonder how ‘see-through’ that filmy outfit on the young girl really was? it’s hard to tell in a black & white photo. But today that pose would be highly questionable for someone so young if the costume is truly sheer.
