Sepia Saturday

Sepia Saturday Header - 320

This week’s prompt made me think of fountains and real sepia tones. So I went with both.

According to the Library Company of Philadelphia, the image above is probably taken at the entrance of Fairmont Park and no date is given. My guess is 19th century.

According to comments on Flickr Commons, this Cornell University Library photo is most likely from Mexico City. The library holds the image in the A.D. White Architectural Photography collection and estimates the date at 1885-1895.

The week’s final fountain photo is from New South Wales. It’s a drinking fountain that was taken before 1885.

Visit Sepia Saturday for more fountain-inspired photos from days gone by.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unexpected

Getting an award for teaching was quite unexpected last week. Apparently my former students did very well on a standardized test, which I really don’t prepare them for anyway. Most of the teachers here do merit awards so while I’m honored, I’d like to bestow awards on all my fine colleagues.

This week I have time and internet access to participate in the Weekly Photo Challenge. Halleluiah! It’s been awhile. Last week I couldn’t get to my blogs and other weeks, either the prompt didn’t inspire me or I was just too busy.

Above I’ve shared photos of my Saturday habit, walking to the bus, going downtown and savoring the music with a cappuccino at Starbucks while I do classwork, grade or write.
