Sepia Scenes #79



For Sepia Scenes today I give you a lovely girl and guy dressed in traditional Greek costume. I saw them at the Scobee Diner where Vinny and I had lunch the other day.



I handcolored her...



I faded the sepia which brought up some color on him...

There's Mr. Linky!

So leave a comment and, of course, visit your blogger friends.



Sistertex has given us a great link: What is Sepia?

Love what you are doing with the photos, hint of color. Cool.

I also left a comment earlier that I'd read an article on sepia. Interesting information in it. Things I'd not known previously.

I will leave it here again in case you missed it. I put it into last weeks comments.

The classic and traditional look of Greece is nice, just enough sepia to accent the costumes. Many of the diners in these parts are owned by Greek descendants. So appropriate (I could use some diner coffee about now :>)

Strange how we both used the color filters this week to enhance the sepia tones. Bizarre connection (in a good way).

Amanda said...

Those are a couple of really nice display pieces. I like how you brought some color through especially the lace in the dress.
