Last week Mary suggested we try a portrait for our sepia scene. I chose to show this original sepia photo from my childhood. Yes, this little chubby cheeked girl is me at around four years old. I have done nothing to the photo except scan it. If it weren't sepia all the actual colors would make for a very busy photo. The sofa I'm sitting on is a dark burgundy color. I have to ask my Mom when I can show her the picture again; but I believe the jumper is a turquoise color with black belt and buttons and the shirt a pale yellow. Of course my hair is strawberry blond. I'm more than happy that sepia was the color of choice at the time!
What am I doing with my hand like that you might be wondering. I was supposed to be catching a ball. Not my catching pose for sure. And, the photographer came door to door. This was taken in our living room. He came to the door, Mom changed my clothes, and the photo session began. My how things have changed!
I took this last week on a short visit to the Amish countryside of Sugarcreek, Ohio. The old wood and metal hopper sitting in the corn field waiting to be hooked up to a team of horses captured my attention. It certainly evokes a time gone by don't you think?
