Sepia Saturday-Week 46.

Sepia Saturday
Week #46
When I first started posting on Sepia Saturday, I thought every post had to be old. Yes I knew old could be sepia, black and white or even color.
But a few months ago I learned how to take photos in black and white, sepia and color with my handy, dandy digital camera.

So I decided to look for some things that look old and do a study with my camera setting on sepia.

An old wedding dress for sale at Goodwill.

An old abandoned house at the far end of my neighborhood.

I think that you can tell these are not old photos, I took them on Friday.
But because they are obviously old items, the sepia does not look to far off course.

Now let's look at this photo.

 She's a cutie for sure.

I took this photo 10 years ago with black and white 34 mm film in my old Canon.
I took it to the regular place I had my photos developed and printed back before digital cameras, of course.
Now, I did not tell the person at the counter that this was black and white film.

Someone told me that if I had told them it was black and white it would have been developed differently than those with color film.
I did not try to get them redone, I kind of like it like it is.

As I said she is a special little girl no matter what color the picture comes out.

Go here for other Sepia Saturday fun and info.

Sometimes mistakes work out. In this case I'd say it was the developer's fault because the film cannisters are labelled -- or were labelled back then when they still existed.

I agree A/C there should have been a better way to manage things. Sometimes folks just overlook.

She IS a cutie (and I love the plastic rabbit too)!

Isn't it amazing how those bride's gowns end up at Goodwill? We have tons of them in ours too. Nice photo!

Lovely photos all of them, especially the one of the wee girl. A lucky accident with the colour I say.

Betsy said...

a sepia setting on your camera? Now that is very cool! I always enjoy your posts, Peggy! xo

It's interesting to see the different between "artificial" sepia and the older, original ones. That wee girl is adorable! Is she a daughter, a granddaughter, ...?

That is a great shot of the old abandon home. Just the right time of the month to show this. Thanks for sharing.....Julian

Your sepia photos are lovely. What a great idea. Love the wedding dress and the old house. The little girl is very sweet.

I like the doctored photos. What a good idea. Love the baby, the gray photo looks very soft.
