I guess that previous vehicles may be a recurring theme for me. So for Sepia Scenes, why not a sepia tribute to my all time favorite car?
A 1982 VW Rabbit (Golf) in a wonderful sepia beige. This is a color we don't see these days. I liked the lightness of the hue as well as the driving dynamics, a 1.7 L four cylinder with a manual transmission (as I recently noted for SSS, I always enjoyed driving with a clutch...) When I had a set of Swedish Gislaved tires installed, it was a blast to drive on curvy roads.
For this take, I used a lightened antique edit, as it kept the original paint sepia while accenting the view. The red streak...I guess that when I was winding the film on the Pentax K1000 back onto the spool - and opened the door, making for the odd exposure here as the light hit the film. But I like the effect of the error...
For the backside, I used sepia that was lightened a bit. In each picture, the beige is not altered much, merely highlighted.
I kept the car for 101,000 miles (163000 Km). We didn't sell it for bad reasons, but since Patti and I also had another 2-door VW (1985 Golf). and were expecting our first child (Allegra), we sold the VW with the highest mileage so we could purchase a Nissan Stanza wagon with four doors. Ironically, it was tan that was not far away from sepia itself (I think that might may be a fine sepia subject too :>)
See lots of sepia art at Mary's meme!
