Last week I posted this photo in colour. Several people wondered whether it would be better in black and white or a with a sepia tint. I wondered that myself, so here it is using a sepia effect to ‘age’ the photo. What’s your preference?
A Black and White Sunday
I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling. View all posts by Heyjude

I like the different tones in the other picture very much. It’s livelier and yet full of peace.
I agree, each gives a very different feel to what you see.
Yes I like it, I knew I would, but pretty equally with the original!
They each have their merits.
I like this!
The hat certainly fits with sepia!
Sepia gets my vote. It is perfect for early 20th century. I have a tin of photos inherited from my parents that look just like this in style. Very nostalgic.
Thanks Andrew. I have a bunch of old photos too, many of them of nameless people. I don’t suppose my children will want them, but it is hard to throw them away.
Love the sepia – although the colour shot seems to enhance all the different shapes a lot more.
Yes, the sepia image just takes you back in time.
