Sepia Scenes - Union statuary


For Sepia Scenes, I offer a statue that sits at the junction of Broadway and Elm Street in New Haven. The monument is referred to as the Broadway Civil War Monument. It was constructed in 1905, and represents four Connecticut regiments that fought in that war. I chose a light sepia to try to evoke the time it was dedicated. Naturally, the astute viewer will notice a modern walk/don't walk light. But should we use our imaginations, we can ignore the modern conveniences and dwell on the almost period look of sepia photo from an earlier era. Modern or no, see lots of sepia at Mary's meme!

You are right, in sepia my eyes are focused on the subject, a historic statue, not the modern distractions.
