Sepia Scenes - Scions
Sepia Scenes is the monochrome meme. This subtle tone allows us to make newer old pictures like old pictures - and old pictures too! There a pair of scions here, my father (Ralph II) and myself (Ralph III).
These pictures were taken nearly twenty years apart in 1961 and before my grandfather passed in 1981. The picture has been enlivened in sepia. Brigantine NJ was Grandpa's kind of vacation spot and in my opinion with the finest white sand on the East coast. That is open to interpretation, of course...
In the second, the sepia adds to the past. Grandpa looks as if he could be living in this early 1900s house, and dressed in the three piece suit. II and III are in modern attire - yet the scene allows the modern to appear old. See more sepia at Mary's
