Having just returned from holiday I'm a bit out-of-sync with my various blog updates, but here's my contribution to the current Sepia Saturday blog. The theme is storms (in sepia) and it seems very appropriate here in the UK today where we are experiencing multiple seasons in a single day over a bank holiday weekend. Our attempts at post-holiday washing and car cleaning activities are being punctuated by heavy downpoors and blustery winds, although fortunately I did manage to hoover out the inside of the car ... a combination of sand, croissant crumbs and a few pine needles from last year's Christmas tree make an interesting cocktail in a car's carpet, and one almost impossible to ever get rid of completely.
Rough Seas, Hastings, Sussex - this is probably my favourite of the batch as it's the most dramatic, although I suspect perhaps the photographer's positioning has made this even more so.
Splash Point, Eastbourne, Sussex, c.1904 - slightly less dramatic that the first postcard, but I like the setting with the hotel in the background.
Storm at Blackpool, Lancashire - this one looks pretty ferocious and perhaps reminds us the incredible power nature holds over us.
100's more postcards like these can be found on my vintage postcards web site
