The header theme this week by Mac is "Sepia". Mac, Gail's Man,Lanny, Dave and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT and start the voting after that.
Darla, Martha and Tom W are on a break. Come back as soon as you are able my friends.
How many of you know that SEPIA isn't just a way to make your photos look old. It is actually a process I used as an Engineer to make modified drawings from an original. You would use a special sepia toned paper and run it through a copying machine with your original drawing to make a copy that could be changed. You would then take the sepia copy and using an ammonia solution, that was really smelly, to take out the original dimension and put in the changed dimension you wanted. You ended up with an out of scale drawing but it could be done quickly and that was the purpose of the SEPIA. The world of computers and ACAD drawings has made the process obsolete. So today we use the SEPIA to make cool effects on a photo.
I took a photo of the lake as I set out at dawn in the pursuit of fish. Can you see the flock of Canada Geese in front of the island? Here is the original photo,
and here is the sepia of the lake, I think it is a cool effect.
I decided to use a American Swallowtail Butterfly photo for my header so here is the original,
and above is the SEPIA.
Check out what other have to show from the above links.
