Sepia Scenes

I am headed into town to see that beautiful baby shown above...I don't know if I will be home in time to get this ready for posting so am going ahead and posting early. I do that most of the time anyway.
These first two are from a place called Billie Creek Village in Parke County. The top one is not the best quality but I still like it. I have got to get some time to experiment with sepia. I see things others do and think they are so neat yet I never take time to try to accomplish anything different.
Now, the rake below is one from an Amish farm in Parke county and is one that is actually used...we had one of these when I was a kid. I think mom and dad gave it to someone, but I can't remember who.
If you want to join the fun of Sepia Scenes, click on Lorelei at the top of this blog. She will take you MaryT/the teach's blog for Sepia Scenes. If you are join, make sure and wait till later this evening...it should open up around 4:00 for today's sepia scenes.

Oh Rose, these are cool pics - were they taken recently? or are they really old pics? cuz they look like they could be from the olden times w/ the sepia! Very cool!!!
And give baby Lorelei a hug for me too!

Nothing more beautiful than a sleeping baby. The sepia tones send it over the top!

Tricia, the top two were taken a few years ago...but I took them so they are not that old. The bottom one was taken last fall.

Nice shots and the baby is sweet in any color! That really is a pretty baby.

Mojo said...

Excellent choices! The farm implements look right at home, and babies... well, they've got a timeless quality about them, right?

Carletta said...

Super choices Rose!
Old things are the subjects best rendered in sepia. With these I don't think you should have done anything differently.
I know you had a wonderful day with Lorelei!

Hello Rose,
These sepia pictures are classics.
I find that metal, rusty in particular, gets beautiful qualities in sepia.

Great shots....stunning!!:-)

Neat sepias of the farm - I always thought those seats looked like waterlily pads. And now lucky is Lorelei Rose to have you documenting her arrival so beautifully!

Ralph said...

anything old seems to come alive in sepia. The bronze tones add a look of permanence. The new of anything seems to need color, but the classic old items seem more alive, to me anyway...

John said...

This is very beautiful sepia photos. My favorite is the picture No. 3.

Christy said...
