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

Oh yes that is very artistic
As I was one of those who suggested this, I am pleased to say that I do like it a great deal. It looks like it could have been taken over 100 years ago.
Best wishes, Pete. x
The clothes he is wearing are exactly the same as a photo of my great-grandfather taken in the early 20th century.
Hey I like this! Looks very old and atmospheric.
I like them both. One feels historic and the other a glorious capture in a modern garden.
Nice! It’s a very bright blue Sunday here but still windy xx
Lost in fog here. Heavy rain during the night too. Oh, well, guess I will have to watch the tennis 🎾😁
Tennis? I’m in the garden. Don’t know if I dare suggest another trip to Durham x
French Open. Plus looking for roofs 😉
Teehee, Jo…did you see the balloons yesterday?
They didn’t fly because it was too windy Sue. Same today so far. I’m practising Polish in the garden while Mick washes the car. Suspect he’s doing better than me. Rafa tomorrow Jude and we’re supposed to be going to Leeds! XX
How’s the Polish coming on? I can only say please, thank you, good morning, goodby, and I don’t speak Polish!! But people seem to appreciate my efforts…Oh, and black coffee!!
That’s a good start. In theory I can say lots of things but connecting mouth and brain is the tricky bit x
I am saying nothing…
I almost said it for you. 🙂 🙂
He can come and wash mine when he’s finished.
I think I prefer the colour version, although this is very nice too.
I suppose it depends on what the photo conveys to you.
I think this is a timeless image, Jude, and the sepia treatment works well!
Thanks Sue. I rather like this version too.
Pleased to hear it!
I really like it this way!
Thanks Aletta 🙂
love it this way! More feeling to it I think
Still seems to cause controversy! Some like it, some prefer the colour version 😀
The sepia one gives it a timeless quality but I am never very comfortable to rob nature of its glorious colours, particularly such a luscious green.
