Sepia Saturday

in #sepiasaturday3 years ago (edited)


It was glorious. The weather was unseasonably warm. Still. It was beautiful. It was #sepiasaturday with @old-man-photos @old-guy-photos.

It wasn't until I went to link this post and it said the user was invalid. Well, yes... He probably is, but, it was then that I realized I used the wrong name.. Ooops!

Making something out of nothing can be an emotion, artistic, religious, scientific, mathematical or a station in your life...it can be something awesome or show the trivial in human nature. Be all you can be.



This is a frieze over the West Doorway of the Washington National Cathedral named Ex Nihilo, which translates as “out of nothing,” this carving dramatically shows life emerging from the void. Partially formed figures of men and women seem to be emerging from the swirling background. — Words written on the wall at Washington National Cathedral.



Flowers. There must always and forever be flowers.

So much to do, not enough hours in my day. Slow down, you're moving too fast.

To everything, there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted... Ecclesiastes 3:1

Don't ever forget what a wonderful world we live in, people. Let's hold hands around the globe and make this earth really spin. Some days, it is not as easy to see, so we must try harder to give everyone the proper focus.


Later that night
I held an atlas in my lap
Ran my fingers across the whole world
And whispered,
"Where does it hurt?"
It answered,

"Everywhere"
"Everywhere"
"Everywhere"

Stunning shots! The monochrome photo of the bridge looks amazing.

Thank you so much. I love to try to get the curvature of this bridge, although I have to get down to water level - but, isn't that half the fun?

Thank you for the visit!

!tip

Haha exactly :)) I have taken photos from all kinds of weird poses, just to get that cool shot :))

Yes! Exactly!

Thank you so much @old-guy-photos! That is a shot of the Bay Bridge, right outside of Annapolis, Maryland. It is the cheap way to go over to the Eastern Shore. :))

Sepia has such and amazing quality. Not sure if it's because it's "old school" and something I grew up with, more or less, or just what it brings out of a photo. I know I LOVE to take forest photos with it. Can't tell WHAT year it's from. (And a series I'm developing with Wilson² in the same vein, but more on that lateron). Your bridge is that way, when was that taken? Thanks for some more gorgeous works.

I have only recently come to love sepia. Not because I didn't care for it, but, hadn't really dabbled with it. After having done a few shots, I agree with you on the quality and it DOES feel old school! In a very good way.

I like that you cannot date it, but I find it hard to find shots to turn into sepia or black and white, for that matter. Perhaps most of mine don't have enough contrast developing a good look for it?

Oh, a new series for Wilson? Do tell!!!

This was a recent shot of the bridge. It is only about an hour away (give or take) from DC, in Annapolis to be exact. Thank you so much for the compliment. You are so very kind, DD! @ddscheinn

I find it is rather crowded Saturday ... #caturday; #sepiasaturday. So hard to keep up! I would love to post in both!
Interesting and unexpected frieze on a cathedral. Good choice sepia or could not be otherwise.

It cannot be Saturday without #Caturday! That tag has been around every social platform that I have ever been on! Good morning, Dan @bluemoon (afternoon to you) You can see by how late I posted that it was almost a non-posting day, as I have not sorted through the new hard drive for pictures! I happened to have the frieze loaded on my phone and one from the bridge... I really need to spend some time organizing the mess I made.

There are so many tags now, aren't there? I'm a guilty party throwing my own in the mix too.

The frieze is very interesting to me, a piece of art above the doorway. I always find the minds of artist interesting and unexpected. They have a whole different way of seeing things. I like going to this cathedral. It had over 700 creches from all over the world at Christmas. Simply beautiful!

Have a peaceful Sunday!

!tip

Thank you!Always a pleasure to meet you, good morning!
I didn't even know that #caturday is your challenge. I'm thinking of proposing a few more ... so that the table will be full.
I wish you a full Sunday with everything you want!

More challenges are more opportunities to post into a tag, right? Thank you so much! I hope you had a wonderful Tuesday!

More challenges can mean even more headaches! I don't really know what I want now.

I just upvoted my own comment on a mistake. Oh, my!

More challenges can be. I frequently make posts in no particular category. This allows me the freedom to use the photos I have available.

It happened to me, also. It's normal to sometimes make mistakes.
This is exactly what I want to do, to avoid the imposed themes and to use my imagination. However, it is more convenient to post in challenges ...

That's because yours are thoughtful pieces. Mine are usually eclectic and all over the place. I find it quite the opposite you can find it easier to post when it is not in challenges.

How odd of me! Lol

Lovely shots, the sepia toning makes them very mysterious? That's not the right word... I'm struggling to find the right word, but I really like them. This is something I never do for some reason. Got to give it a try sometime. Really like them, and the flower and cat too! U+R :)

Thanks, Keith! @keithboone I was never big in sepia and only did it for the #sepiasaturday tag. I thought I would give it a try. I have a lot of trouble with black and white and sepia, finding the right picture to do it justice.

I never know what to use for guidelines!

I'm not generally a fan of sepia images but you have made me think twice @dswigle The bridge scene is awesome with a very appealing perspective and the detail on that carving is beautiful. The artist has given a lot of thought to the arrangement of the figures and I really like the flow and movement he has created.

Have a great week ahead Denise!

Thank you so much, Trudee! @trudeehunter I do love the bridge and would never have put it in sepia except for the challenge. I am not a fan of sepia, but these few weeks have changed how I feel.

The frieze at the cathedral was an interesting vision someone had and it turned out spectacular!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Happy Sunday and have a great day

Thanks, JJ! @tattoodjay The Washington Cathedral has so many hidden gems in it. I could photograph that place all day long. Thanks for stopping by and have a great Sunday!

!tip

I only visited it once, but it was so impressive to see and I didnt even have a camera with me at the time, I would love to visit again sometime

They have renovated it again as they do these buildings all the time. Just remember, it is only 5 hours and some change from home! :))

not to far at all I should do a visit there sometime

Yes! It's calling your name! :) The church, not DC. LOL

Just kidding!

Generally when I hear my name called it is in anger LOL

Well, then you are doing something right! :)
