Sepia Scenes


This is another view of the lovely Osborne Homestead Museum in Derby, Ct. I thought the window featuring natural decorations would work well in sepia. This year's theme for the house was "Wonders of Nature." I posted several photos from the home last week, here and here.
The historic house was the lifelong home of Frances Osborne Kellogg, a businesswoman and philanthropist, who died in 1956 at the age of 80.

Below I sepia-fied a photo of our backyard that I posted earlier today. I wanted to give it a snow globe effect. Let it snow, let it snow...



Visit Mary T at Sepia Scenes to see many more sepia tone photos.

Happy holidays to all!

Love the window vignette! The natural decorations lend very well for your sepia toning. This makes me want to decorate a little more. :)
The backyard 'snowglobe' is cool - I need more snow!!! Perfect idea for a Christmas card.

Hi Patti,

I would not have guess that the first picture was actually sepia'd. It looks so natural. Lovely.

And your backyard as a snowglobe is very warm and welcoming. I checked out the original and made a new friend with Mr. Doggie. He looks a bit befuddled with the snow. LOL

The sepia enhanced the tan leaves and leafless shrub. Nice capture m'lady!

I love your snowglobe, what a sweet, serene image. I can almost hear the silence of the falling snow.

Well, here I am Patti, glad you liked my Christmas card... I thought those stars were homemade crafts by you. The scene in your backyard is lovely! We didn't get any snow - Thank goodness! :)
