Sepia Scenes - 100 by any means


Sepia Scenes has reached a milestone of import - 100 posts! A goal some of us aspire to is to be read at all. We don’t think of quantifying anything ahead of securing readers, and don’t consider  the numbers. 

Yet 100 is a number that is impressive in any setting. A century of posts means that Sepia Scenes is a fixture that lets us photographers (from professional to hacks) dabble in a soft monochrome. The idea is a 100-themed post as mentioned last week: 
So next week you'll post 100 things 
or some thing that equals 100 things, okay?
So my sepia post follows the requested theme - sort of. The building is the Connecticut State Library and Supreme Court Building in Hartford. Where is 100 here? Well, this beautiful if imposing building has met the goal - it was completed and opened in 1910. That’s 100 - years? Right? 
I captured this marvelous structure when at the state capitol just across the street. The columns, the arches and granite are always a natural for sepia.
So Mary, congratulations on 100! Keep it up, and we shall celebrate the second century of sepia...

Nice one! It's a gorgeous building, I was trying to find something 100 years old, but I got something 104 years old and one 93 years old instead. I was going to post both and say a sort of average would be 100, but buttons worked nicely instead. :)

Neat shot and great explanation for how it fits into the 100 theme, Happy 100!

You are so 100 percent right Ralph! So many hackers and when I looked at some entries, there are some who did not even attempt any 100 at all! ;-(

Well now aren't you just the clever one! :)
It's been fun seeing everyone's interpretation and you had a grand idea with a perfect sepia subject!
Nicely done Ralph!

BTW - the 100 dollars was real. It was one of the first new ones when they changed. It's been hard to hold on to. :)
