Nature's Own Sepia

When I first looked at this shot I thought it might be a good candidate for sepia but it quickly became apparent that nature had already done the job for me.

I'm back from an exhausting but invigorating two-day conference. It may take me some time to catch up though, I'm hoping to crash early tonight and will be in Tel Aviv half the day tomorrow getting my boobs squished for a baseline mammogram (and ultrasound, but that part shouldn't involve any squishing). Consider this your public service announcement ladies - are you due for yours? Yes? Don't put it off, get yourself an appointment today. For the rest of you - have you done your breast self-exam yet this month? It only takes a few moments and could be the most important five minutes of your life.

It's kind of naturally ooey - like something drip down from a tree and dotted with squooshed chocolate chips.

Thanks for the public service broadcast. Glad you had a good conference.

Nature makes beautiful sepia. Chocolate chips..or maybe raisins. ha

Thanks for the PSA. I have the form from the dr. and need to make an app't for mine. Yep, it's overdue.

Thanks for your PSA (always a good reminder).

Love the squooshy-ooey-gooeyness!

Mine is dedicated to my sister, today. A candle in the window of life.

Yes, Robin, sometimes it's not good to sepiasize(?) a photo that is already in sepia... like this very much! :)

Serendipity said...

Perfect shot. Hope all goes well with the tests.

That is such a great shot. I love the textures and shades. Very nice.

The bark offers a nice take on sepia. Nature seems to offer her own palette, hues that we mortals can attempt to replicate - but never fully match!

Carletta said...

Wonderful texture and natural color!
Forgive me but I can't seem to look at it without imagining it's sprouting raisens. :)

Thanks for the medical reminder.

Daryl said...

Mojo said...

Man... that looks ... edible. Very cool! Love it when things fall together that way.
