SEPIA

Carmi's Thematic Challenge this week is SEPIA. I don't like to let him go unchallenged, so here are my two efforts.











I always associate sepia with old photos. I used to print photos in sepia, as did my Father, using daylight paper. Anyone remember that?!

So I have included one of me and my sister, taken in about 1942, and done in sepia. I'm the big bossy one! I loved that tree, which we called the Swing-y Tree. It was quite a walk for small legs, but we thought nothing of it then!






Ah, happy days!

Love the picture of you and your sister. Sepia photos always make me think of old photos as well. They give a much softer image than black and white.

Lovely photos all round.

When I was in high school my dad built a darkroom in a closet off my bedroom, so I also remember developing sepia pictures. The darkroom wasn't set up for color, so I just had black & white, so I got creative with that.
Your eyes are working well enough to get some good photos, hope the healing goes fast.
