Sepia Shadows

Click to enlarge

What is implied is sometimes more powerful than what is obvious. The innate monochrome character of this shot seemed a natural choice for this week's Sepia Scenes, too.

Come back tomorrow though for color in all its grandeur - I've got a doozy coming up ;-).

The textures of the entire picture brings on attention to it.

Thanks for the well wishes on my #365 :)

I like this!
I can see this as a great 'scrapbook' page - probably with a sepia picture on top. :)
Very nice!

I've said for years that what's left to the imagination evokes more visceral responses than what's spoon fed to you. An alluring gaze across a bare shoulder is far more compelling than a gratuitous full-frontal assault. (Well... usually at least.)

But this just works on a lot of levels. And as rare as it is, I think sepia's a better choice than black and white for this one. (Note the date. I don't say that very often.)

Great shot!

How lovely and surreal. I like the silhouettes...this is a beauty.

I like the background and am interested in seeing the original shot.

Jan said...

Wow, you added textures, too! This is great.

I can't wait!

Phyllis Sommer said...

ooh pretty. can't wait for color:-)

Robin said...

The original shot is actually quite similar to this one. Shadows are shadows, and the tile is already a beigey terrazo :).

And nope, no textures either.

I did enlarge it and I'm glad I did. The texturing is wonderful and the shadowing is soft and textured at the same time. It's my favorite for this week.

Sepia adds a subtle softness and quietness to any photo. The picture is soft and intriguing, and looks great!
