Sepia Scenes - 1

As you may deduce from the title, this blog is primarily to have a bit of fun with some of the photo memes that float around the blogosphere. This first post is for a new meme called Sepia Scenes which is hosted by Theteach. Drop by and check it out.

Sepia is a color adjustment that often evokes a sense of classic photography. It simulates the aging process that often produces a yellow cast in older photographs. It can give photo's a timeless effect which is particularly effective with many scenes, particularly ones where the scene itself is not 'dated' by the objects in the photograph. It can also add a different perspective and impact to contemporary photographs similar to the effect of black-and-white photo's.

Since I don't have a wide variety of photographs to choose from I thought it would be interesting to use shots that I would normally use on my other blog and show them sans color. Most of them are scenes and subjects that are classic in their own right as they are nature scenes that would be basically the same no matter when the photo was taken.

So, here is my first Sepia Scenes photo.


  1. a beautiful first sepia shot!

    and very fitting for the season

  2. First I saw one and then two and lions, tigers and bears, there are THREE turtles on this branch. What a lucky picture to capture. Very much like it in sepia.

  3. Oh how great, turtles! Great capture! And I love it in sepia! :)

  4. This is a fun new meme..
    This turtles photo look like in an old National Geographic magazine.. ;)

    Got mine here

  5. Dianne - Thanks

    Annie - those turtles have great eyes - There were probably more than 15 there originally but most dropped of in the water when I came into view even though I was over 100 feet away

    Thanks The Teach - This looks like it might be fun

    bingtang - I hadn't thought in those exact terms but it does look like a shot from a nature magazine maybe from the 1930's - Congrats on the new site - Good luck
