This week Debbie has challenged us with the following:
Welcome to One Word Sunday, and over to all of you to join the challenge with your own sepia post.
Sometimes a photo screams to be in black and white, sometimes it needs a little colour, and sometimes you just want to bend it to your will.
I am not sure why I chose this photo, it was a mixture of just wanting to see what I could do with it, the incongruity of using what is seen as an old technique on an image with very definite modern elements, and an awareness that the sepia would pop on the highlights of the wet-suits.
‘Floating’, Sennen cove, 2019.
This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.
At the start of 2019, GC and I introduced a monthly colour challenge and the colour for August is SEPIA.
The perfect chance to use a photo from the old family albums I have been scanning and repairing – This time left in all its Sepia glory and mostly unedited.
There is definitely something that the photographer has captured here, she looks inquisitive to me, I wish I knew who she grew up to be – more research needed :).
Normally upon seeing this weeks B&W photo challenge title from Cee, that of “WHAT IS BEAUTIFUL TO YOU“, I would have been rushing off to find photos, of Megaliths, Flowers or beautiful landscapes. Indeed I thought of posting some of those things.
However those of you who know me well, and/or are friends on Facebook will know that this week my wife Karen has been in hospital with appendicitis. So I thought I would post one of my favourite photos of her, and indeed a photo she herself is happy with, which is no small feat.
This was taken on our first digital camera, a DiMAGE Z3 in 2009 at Men-an-tol in Cornwall.
So ‘What is beautiful to’ me – Life, friendship, companionship and love.
