Sepia Saturday, Simple, sad and strange

A strange title for this post, but my excuse for that is it is strange times LOL

this is a post for Sepia Saturday Hosted by @old-guy-photos and I had fun looking for some shots that would work well for Sepia Edits, now I am not sure if simple fits the first shot, but to me that's all I could think of.

this is on a visit to Silver Sands State Park a while back and this is looking alongside the boardwalk that crosses over the marsh from the Car Park to the beach and I liked this angle, and shot and I played with it in Sepia and was quite pleased how it came out and infact it was this shot that read me to then decide on doing a sepia post today

Now I warn you I was not so inspired with the other shots I came up with for this post so it may all be downhill from here.

This next shot is also at Silver Sands State Park but from a year or so ago, and at the time seeing this building damaged by fire, was sad to see, but the good news is as I shared in a recent post the construction started again and is close to being completed last time I saw it.

And for the strange part of the post, I had a bit of fun playing around with this shot of a shadow on a bike and its basket.

Very nice shots! I think we are all getting into a bit of a funk every now and then. Hopefully we can shake out of it soon!

Yeah when I am not getting out and taking photos I find it hard to be motivated to edit and its been almost a month now since I was taking photos I think the longest break I have had for years

I like that it an “old-timey “ feel. 😀

I do agree thats what works well with Sepia edits giving a timeless feel

Sepia always looks great...


Hello dear friend! A question this is a dynamic of the Saturdays?

Its tag Old Guy started for Saturdays Yes :)

Wow this first picture is just absolutley beautiful.

stillness in a barren landscape.

somehow endless.

thank you for sharing.

many cheers


Thanks so much such a kind comment and truly appreciated

All of the images were awesome, yes I can feel the sadness and loneliness just watching them all. I want to voice out what I was feeling but maybe not this time. 😑


That first photo is breathtaking Jay! I love everything about it! The second is indeed sad and the third is interestingly strange for sure but I do love how it came out. The first and third photos are my favorites. 💖

I like #1 and #2 pictures. strange effects on #3 doesnt click me well.

ps. image #2 would look more stunning if there was no modern metallic shiny fence on the left. (am I too picky?.. )

First off not to picky at all, I love honest feedback and it is appreciated


:=) me too.


Usually don't love sepia. But this photos are great

Thanks kind of you to say ;)

Absolutely beautiful photos, as usual I hope you are doing well and staying safe. Have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks and yes all good here, staying indoors for the most part unless we absolutely have to go somewhere, a bit of cabin fever but has to be done ;)
