"In my early days I was a sepia Hedy Lamarr. Now I`m black and a woman, singing my own way." ~ Lena Horne
"We printed all the individual images in sepia tone, but we break out one player in each shot in color." ~ Mark Gray
"When you photograph people in color you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls!" ~Ted Grant
This is a new Idea for me.. I have a blue gazillion Photographs.. I have photo disks that I haven't a clue what might be on them.. They are some sent to me by others and some that I scanned for mama once upon a time.. some like this one.. that I had saved as I used them in scrap~ booking.. for a long time I kept them all on my computer.. than that computer died taking a million of my favorite photo's along with it into the land of fried motherboards and flipped processors... I was devastated to loose so many wonderful pictures.. This one is My Daddy on the boat going down the Mississippi river in July 1965. My Mama's baby brother ~ JC~ Lived in New Orleans and we went there on vacation that year..
I have never really worked with sepia photographs.. I myself really love the old timey Black and White.. My first Camera... a brownie hawk-eye.. made the best pictures in black and white.. I still have that old camera and if I could find the film and a place to develop it.. I would still be trying to look through the veiw finder on top... squaring my subjects away and snapping them in Black and white... I have even seen photo's first printed in sepia then colored with color pencils to add a highlight.. I could color Daddy into purple plaid shorts.. and a lavender shirt.. or olive and navy shorts with a lime green shirt.. Or maybe I will just enjoy seeing him as he was... waving as he enjoyed the scenery... I can almost hear him saying to other boats as they passed.. Howareya?...(yes it is said as one word sometimes!) Happy and smiling.. a great sepia scene!
Have a great day!
