Sepia Scenes

This post was at the intersection of two roads...I have no idea how long the rocks have been there. Actually, I would almost hate to know because I am afraid they have been there a long time and I have not noticed them.I took both these photos yesterday, and have posted the barn below on The World in Black & White blog. But I like it both ways, and couldn't choose just one way.Anyway, I really enjoy seeing the photos posted for Sepia Scenes, if you want to join or just see more photos sepia tinted, click on the badge at the top of this post.

Interesting, Rose... You take great pictures. That road 'sign' with the rocks is interesting. Isn't it amazing how much we see out there in the world when we start looking????
Hugs,

I wonder if the farmer came across the rocks in the field and put them there to get them out of the way.
Both shots are great in sepia.
I'm off now to check out the black and white blog.

Great pictures, Rose. There has to be a story behind the rocks; wouldn't it be nice to know?

Leedra said...

Isn't it funny how we see something out of place and we wonder how long we have gone right by it that way and not noticed it? Or did it just happen? Nobody to ask makes it worse. :)

Great interpretations in sepia. The rocks are a mystery, aren't they.

I like the barn both ways. The rocks made a really nice picture too.

Love the rocks, it was nice of them to pose for you.

Robin said...

Cool rocks. I'm sure they haven't been there that long, they're too eye-catching not to notice.

Great barn too. Old barns are just perfect for sepia.

Dirk said...

Very nice pictures, the one with the rocks is my favourite.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Sometimes travelers pile rocks as markers for indicating to friends which direction to go...so maybe they have been there for only few days...or NOT. ;-)

Wonderful old barn.

Tricia said...

They look really good in sepia & the barn looks good both ways - I don't know which is my favorite though! I love the look of the falling snow

Dianne said...

I saw the B&W version first and the snow show up better but this has such a wonderful feel to it

we both decided to do a sepia and a B&W of the same shot :)
great minds

Love the post! How unique! Great looking barn, too. Wonderful photos as always and your comments are always insightful about what you see.

Very nice sepia studies. That one of the rocks is especially intruiguing. Probably put there by some person who would never in a million years have considered themselves to be artistic, yet they have created a very lovely "found sculpture" moment in the landscape.

Ha ha! The post is great! I love the barn too.

Hi!
Saw your barn in Black and White. I liked it too! Really like the sepia and the rocks are great! Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!!

Great sepia shots! And I wonder about that top rock...it looks like an axe handle or tomahawk head or some other kind of implement that would have been tied to a heavy stick.

JewWishes said...

What lovely photos...so filled with nostalgia and times gone by.

maryt/theteach said...

These are exquisite photos, Rose! That cairn is very interesting... :)

PJ said...

I love the mystery of the first one and the massiveness of the impressive second one. Can you imagine the cost of building a barn like that today?
