This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt challenges bloggers to post photos with some contrast. Above we see two boys, natural and innocent, taking in a fashion plate who looks elegant but artificial. My search resulted in these photos.

These women are modeling for Turners’ and Tyne & Wear explains them saying:
The images are fascinating for what they tell us about the times that produced them – the fashions, the attitudes, the technology … Most of the images are quirky and almost seem to invite comments.
The photos certainly have contrast. By today’s standards the women’s clothing is tame, but in their day, I bet they were deemed risqué. Click here to see more Sepia Saturday posts.
I loved you, and I probably still do,
And for a while the feeling may remain…
But let my love no longer trouble you,
I do not wish to cause you any pain.
I loved you; and the hopelessness I knew,
The jealousy, the shyness – though in vain –
Made up a love so tender and so true
As may God grant you to be loved again.
The Which Way Challenge, that Cee began, has been picked up by the Sonofthebeach69 blogger. The beauty of it is that it’s free form. You can include images of doors, gates, roads, streets exits, signs, paths, waterways, you name it.
