A Black and White Sunday

The Artist

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?

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.

  1. 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

    1. The clothes he is wearing are exactly the same as a photo of my great-grandfather taken in the early 20th century.

    1. Lost in fog here. Heavy rain during the night too. Oh, well, guess I will have to watch the tennis 🎾😁

        1. 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

        2. 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!!

  2. 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.
