Sepia Scenes - Sepia Holiday

Sepia Scenes and Christmas can go together well.


This print is from 1975 and includes the seven siblings, an ex, a niece and a nephew. And not to forget a most wonderful family canine named Boris.


How does a monochrome work in a season of red and green hues? Well, this old color print is so faded that the grandeur of the decorated tree is as well. Yet, sepia can mute the damage of the print and better show off the features of a time when the oldest child was only 21. 


Thus, it is now a sepia memory on a holiday that never gets old...

The sepia always highlights what's missing. Happy holidays!

Hi Ralph,

Sepia always improves EVERYTHING.

Merry Christmas to you and yours,
Annie

p.s. - my verification word is "gasped". LOL

sepia family photos are always poignant

A sepia tone almost seems to give a sacred atmosphere to family photos! Delightful!

Great family photo, glittering tree and a somewhat solemn minded family.
True Christmas spirit. Only Boris seems not to mind. Perhaps he's focused on the leftovers?

The photo looks very good in sepia. The photos from the seventies had not a good quality. That's a pity. I have some very faded photos too. You made a good work with this photo :)

This old photo looks great in sepia tones. The sepia does mute the damage of the years. ;-)
