A portrait of a lady. That’s how I see this week’s prompt. So I searched through the archives and my own photos of portraits of ladies.

This week Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers to dig through the archives to find photos along promenade or at a spa. It’s a challenge that can brighten a gloomy day, like what we’re having.
I do notice more neighbors out to take walks during the Quarantine, so I’m going with promenade for my inspiration.

Each week Sepia Saturday bloggers are challenged to share photos based on a theme. This week’s photo shows a man surrounded by a bevy of beauties. I’m searching for photos with a man or woman outnumbered by members of the opposite sex.

Sepia Saturday bloggers are challenged this week to share photos inspired by the image of men lounging on a cruise ship (above). The first ship that comes to mind for me is the Queen Mary.
