Sepia Potpourri

Today I'd like to share a few of my pictures I converted to sepia tone, which makes them look as if they belong in the pages of an old photograph album.

Gibbes Country Store, Learned, Mississippi

Building in Learned

Baum Statue, with Court House in Background

Ceres Plantation Barn, Flowers, Mississippi

I love the way sepia tones can totally change the look of a photograph and make the subject look as if it is from another place in time. Some of the places shown in the above photos are very old, but some of them are not. Can you tell the old ones from the new?

Janie these shots in Sepia are just beautiful. Sorry I haven't been by lately. Just returning from my trip and computer is in hospital again.

You KNOW these are my favorites---even if the gold of the Ginko still shines in my mind, and the chairs will ever be that bright, stunning blue.

Thank you for all this work and all the bright and beautiful that you bring to my life every day.

Janie, these are fantastic! Just fabulous!

I particularly am amazed at the ginko tree. Don't ever think I've seen one that size. My sister had an ancient one in her yard in Charleston, but this one is MUCH larger.

Wonderful images all.
