Sepia Scenes - Bearly Moving



Sepia Scenes arrives again, and we look for appropriate subjects to enhance with sepia. Some things and places work allow for a slight tweak in this appealing monochrome.

Hear lies a bear in his cooling pool on a stiflingly humid 100°F (38°C) day at the Doorly Zoo in Omaha. He is a bruin in a brown suit of fur, while the concrete and rocks around the pool look fine in an antique sepia hue. The concrete now looks a bit warmer in this appealing edit.

His look shows a tolerance toward the visitors, so the sepia even warmed up his attitude slightly...

What a personality that bear has!! I have to agree that it is perfect in sepia. And I am so jealous of the 100* weather. I can't wait for summer, or spring for that matter.

Wonderful shot! It makes me sad though. The sepia sets the tone of the reality of the bear's life in his caged surroundings.

Deceptive creatures are bears... not quite the cute cuddly animals that their stuffed versions are. But this one looks calm but curious. Great job!

The bear looks like his fur is just a bit too much for that warm day.

Hi Ralph. You chose a perfect image for sepia. Nice composition that tells a story. I like it.

He looks like one big teddy bear!
The way his paw lays on the concrete he looks like he's just hanging out in the pool having a conversation with those at poolside.
Fun post Ralph!
