Sepia Scenes



Once again it's time for Sepia Scenes. How does a week pass so quickly?

Long ago, too many years to even estimate now, I "bought" my first digital camera with "company bucks" accumulated through a promotion and then used in a gift book. I was reluctant to join in the digital craze that was taking over the country as I loved my SLR Nikon and sometimes would take incredible pictures.

One of my friends tried to explain to me how much fun a digital was, what you could do with it, the programs available to refine the pictures, how digital was easier to store than film...and on and on and on.

Once I had that little premium camera in my hand, I never have once touched my old Nikon, except to move with all the other crap I have accumulated in my life time that I can not live without....

Anyway, this picture was from those first days of fooling around with the new technology. The freedom it gave you to take pictures of anything you damn well pleased...this was one of the results, now in Sepia. (because my friend was right all the time!)

Hi!
Beautiful Sepia shot! I'm with you on the digital camera. I got mine a couple years ago and just love it. But I do miss my old 35mm. Have a great day!!

I bought my first digital camera--VERY primitive, as digitals go--in 2001, I think. It was just a toy...I didn't use it much. But once I bought my first digital that had real user-friendly software and a memory card, I never looked back. I have had more fun with photography since the dawn of the digital age than I ever had with my old SLR...
