Sepia Scenes sends us scurrying for seasonal subjects that may be enhanced by this subtle monochrome.
For me, I turn to Christmases past, here in 1971 (me at 16). Naturally, the triumvirate of Ralph I, II and III. This day was unusually warm as I remember, and the grass was the seasonal brown on Wickham Drive in East Hartford. The house was a sepia-ish yellow, the southerly sun was strong (see the shadows). Sepia brightens the brilliantly sunny, yet faded print appropriately.
This is around Christmas 1975, with six of the seven kids. The holiday snow is on the ground, no sun here. On the opposite side of the house, I chose a much lighter sepia edit. Since there was no sun to highlight, the choice to keep the glare muted and softens the look.
Christmas is a fine season by me, warm or cold, cloud or sun, frozen precip or none...Happy New Year to the sepia artists on Mary's great meme!
