Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers with a visual prompt. Here we have a boy from New South Wales cooking while at his youth camp.
I usually take this as an opportunity to explore digital archives. Here’s what I found this week. If you’re curious to see what other bloggers share, check out Sepia Saturday’s site. I always find some fascinating interpretations of the theme.
