Farm Flowers in Sepia

I took this photo of flowers at Howell Living History Farm in western New Jersey in the middle of the summer. This shot was taken with the sepia setting on my camera.

This photo was taken a few minutes later, in full color.

Mary is celebrating the 50th round of Sepia Scenes. Glad I was able to share in this one. And WordPress tells me this is my 900th post.

Lovely perennials. The setting and flowers look so old fashioned. Very nice photo.

I don't have a sepia setting on my point and shoot Canon. Interesting!

Happy Sepia Scenes Wednesday ~

Ralph says

The colors are nice - but devoid of the green and yellow of Summer, the shape and silhouette of the flora stands out. The muted hues of the buildings show off the flowering plant nicely as well. A nice take!

Rose says

This is a great shot...just something about it I really, really like.

Leora, I love both these photos! The sepia toning and the full color shots are very creative! Walt Whitman's Birthplace is in Long Island, but he spent the last few years of his life in Camden NJ. Happy Sepia SCenes! :)

Wow lovely photo!

Ilana-Davita says

Too late for sepian scenes I have prepared a window view post!
I like your sepia photo and it is quite interesting to see the "original" so to speak.

Jew Wishes says

The photos are both beautiful, each in their own way.

I like the sepia tones, reminding me of days gone by. It emanates such nostalgia.

Marie Carpe Diem says

Lovely in sepia.

@nemonen says

Flowers are very interesting in sepia. I like this particulary flowers. I have som in my garden. Nice picture

Vita Stunder says

Nice sepia! :)

Robin from Israel says

They look so much more autumnal in sepia. Very pretty, though I think I still prefer the color version for joy and cheer.

Leora says

Robin, I almost always prefer the full color version! I think that's one of the reasons I have a hard time participating in Sepia Scenes...I always want to add back in color and more color and then some color over here...

Dianne says

sepia makes it more fall like

Happy 900!!
that's really something

Ginger@When Ginger snaps... says

They are pretty in color, too. I know what you mean, I love photos with lots of color, but I'm strangely attracted to the sepia shots. I think a photo has to be really good in order to stand out in sepia.

Leora says

I think a photo has to be really good in order to stand out in sepia.
How true!

Heidi says

I'm not sure if I like the shot better in sepia or color. They are both beautiful!
If you'd like to stop by my blog I'm at Cake Crumbs.

EG Wow! says

I like seeing the before and after shots. The sepia definitely adds age to the photo.

ramblingwoods says

I like the texture of the building with the flowers. I like both photos..I think it's fun to experiment isn't it?

Leora says

Yes, I had a great day with the camera, 3 girls, and my husband on this trip.

NatureFootstep says
