Sepia Scenes is a showcase of monochrome images. Perhaps seasonal sepias work for this week
Then let's go back to the year 1964. In those days, the growth of suburbia, in this case 115 Wickham Drive in East Hartford Connecticut.
As I understand it, a route photographer came by looking to take family pictures for Christmas cards. My mother had to get all seven of us dressed and ready for the photo.
So the top item is the 1964 Villers family card. The card was done in a light sepia, the portrait itself in antique. The B&W print has aged so is not as brilliant as new. But the faded look is from the past, and sepia gives it the look of the past.
See sepia in its monochrome glory at Mary's site!
