Sepia Scenes # 1

Hey, bloggers, it's our first SEPIA SCENES post! Here's my contribution:


Boston Massachusetts, July 2008*

Don't forget to link back here from your site and to sign Mr. Linky.

Please leave a comment if you can.

Use the SEPIA SCENES badge if you like.

*Color photo, applied black & white effect, then bronze effect in Photobucket. Then I used the FADE slide to tone down the bronze effect.

Thank you Elaine for the new "Sepia Scenes" button. Feel free to take it and post it on your sidebar.

I guess maybe the car might date your photo but other than that it would be hard to date. Sepia tones have always been favourite finishes to me and they never fail to brings back memories of old family photos taken before my time. Good luck with the meme, I hope it draws a lot of interest and participation.

Boston looks great in sepia!

Thanks for your PSE tutorial, by the way. I liked the look of your sepia-tone photos so much, I ditched my original ones and tried the PSE technique. The second try was WAY better than my first. ;-)

Mary, good turn out for the first week! Sepia, I can take or leave, so it was a challenge for me to create something I liked well enough to share.

Carletta said...

I love yours Mary! Love the header photo as well.
Mine's up late but I made it!
I'm sure this will be a huge success.

I love the way the coloring whisks the town back a hundred years. Cool meme!

Here's my first effort:

Digital Polaroids said...

Great idea, here´s my first contribution, Teach!

Baker Watson said...

Great photo's and good idea for a meme. I've always liked to play around with sepia, but seldom post any photo's using it as they don't really fit my regular blog.

Soooo...I created a new blog to join in the sepia fun and perhaps even a few other memes.

You can find my post at:

Elizabeth said...

This is a great idea for a meme! I am visiting via Grandma Faith's mention of Ruby Tuesday, which also sounds fun!

I love your scene. I wasn't able to see the Mr. Linky. I don't know why - wasn't able to see it on the day I did the sepia scene either. I will make more of an effort next week.
