Sepia Scenes


I decided to show a old sepia photo also of my husbands grandparents sitting around the parlor. The date would have been the early 1900's. The first is the original scanned photo.


And in this one I cropped the frame off a little and increased the saturation also. We still have the rocker his grandmother is sitting on in the picture. And she probably got it used.


visit Mary the Teach for more sepia scenes.

What a great old photo Julie! These are real treasures, aren't they? I'll have to pull out some of my family treasures soon.

These are treasures that have been passed down to you. How wonderful. I don't have any of my grandparents. Where we came from photography didn't arrive there quickly. thanks for sharing.

The pale bronze tones that frame the scene add a classic scale to the picture - like we are sitting there in the early 20th Century...

Wow! This is just so cool. What a great photo to study and look for all the items in the background. Excellent submission!

Fantastic old photo & the scene is very interesting - the kids are playing the piano, etc. Who's taking the photo I wonder?

I saw your comment to Mary and was curious what I'd find here.
This is certainly a wonderful treasure. Having the chair and the photo to substantiate it's age reminds of the Antiques Road Show. :)
Nicely done.
