Sepia Scenes


I have posted this before in the color version...thought I would try it in sepia and I love it that way too. It is one of the two local funeral homes. I have always loved the lighting at night and have at different times went down and photographed it at night. The night I took this I got the pictures I liked the most. So far. I am sure I will probably try it again some other time.

If you want to join Sepia Scenes click on the badge at the top of this post and it will take you to the sign-in page. Just make sure it is today's date. Or just go and visit others...leave as many comments as you can for we all like to get comments.

edited to add...if you want to see the original, or a couple of scanned in photos from B&W film days, type in 'funeral home' in the search box at the top of the blog.

Very warm-looking in sepia.

I remember when you posted this before. ;-) It certainly works in sepia too.

I may not be able to see the one in color, but this one sure looks great.

My sepia scene is posted here. It's my first.

The lighting at night gives it a very special effect. Nice !

Mojo said...

Beautiful ... in a spooky sort of way. But maybe knowing what it is gives me the spooky vibe. Or the exposure of the highlights may be what does it. Looks kinda haunted-ish. Or maybe it's just me. But haunted or not, it's cool!

If you're going back, you might try stopping down the shutter speed a stop or even two or three just as an experiment to see what happens. If your camera will let you that is. (I don't know what you have, so it may not give you that level of control.)

Great Sepia pictures.

If you want to see the original or a couple other photos that were scanned in from B&W film, put funeral home in the search box at the top of this page.

You're right, Rose, this is a great sepia picture. Thanks for sharing it with us.

I liked it the first time I saw it and I like it even better in sepia. Good choice Rose!

Deborah Godin said...

That is a nice comforting glow, The search didn't work for me, so I can't comment on the other,but this is really lovely.

Funeral homes always make for a classy shot, Rose! Happy Sepia Scenes! :)

Carletta said...

I do remember this Rose. I remember liking the lighting really well.
It makes a wonderful Sepia image. I think I like it better than the color one.

Ralph said...

Funeral homes these days are in old stately houses. You have captured the finest architecture and the sepia highlights the lines so well!

Leora said...

A house with a turret is perfect for sepia. Knowing it's a funeral home makes it a little spooky. Lovely image.

Mary said...

Wonderful building...I think I remember the color shot. I love houses that have towers...interesting funeral home.

Robin said...

That building is too pretty to be a funeral home. Some little girl should be living in that turret room!

(Or is that just my own childhood "live in a castle" fantasies talking?)
