“ The world is my canvas and I colour my own reality .” ~ unknown .
This weekend the photo challenge over on Weekly Prompts, the site shared with my partner GC, is our monthly colour challenge, and for August we have chosen the colour SEPIA.
Sepia – a shade we add to photographs or perhaps use as a natural standalone shade of brown. For my response, I’ve chosen to go with both.
This photograph was taken on Windsor railway station, approx mid eighties. My late husband Graham was working in the area, and the girls and I joined him in Windsor for a long weekend (a few years before son Joss was born). It was during a Queen Victoria celebration weekend. The clothes fitted on top of our own and fastened with velcro. We were instructed not to smile because Victorians never smiled for photographs!
My eldest brother’s wedding, I’m the little bridesmaid. The photograph was taken in black and white, I added a very slight Sepia edit.
The riverside, Knaresborough, North Yorkshire; a place I love and visit often. I think my iPhone photograph is timeless it could have been taken any time during the last century. For this one I chose to use a slightly stronger, Sepia edit.
The Nostalgia Tearooms (we like it here) in Otley the little market town where daughter Sophie lives. I added the same strength Sepia edit to this second iPhone photograph.
The sunset from my bedroom window (through the glass). No edit needed here because the sunset itself is showing us shades of Sepia alongside the sunset yellow. And appropriately brings this photographic post to its conclusion.
