My life in sepia

It’s late as I write this and my favorite show will soon be airing. I became a Lost junkie during the second or third season and now ~ well you know how it goes with addictions such as this.

Rather than write a long and thought-provoking post (as if), I decided to share some photos I processed tonight using sepia tones. In fact, for all of these photos, I used pretty much the same processing which I’ll point out at the end .

I love how this photo looks in sepia and want to print it on something large and hang it against a wall painted robin’s egg blue.

I just do.

Here it is in color.

I love how different this one looks.

I like how the sepia tones rendered this one but think I prefer it in color.

I posted the color photo of this one yesterday on my Picture A Day blog and like them both equally.

I can’t forget Georgie boy here, aka the Black & White, aka Monsieur Le Pup Pup (are you gagging yet?) What can I say? It’s what I call him.

I’m still reading through your answers to yesterday’s Q&A. It’s fun.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For all of today’s photos (except George), I used the following actions: Kevin Kubota’s Chocolate Syrup (either 1 or 2), Pioneer Woman’s Boost and MCP’s Burnt Edges I.

Uh-oh. The Singing Survivor Show is ending. And my guy Lee just blew my girl Crystal out of the water.That means that Lost is starting. And I'm just in time.

Until tomorrow, then . . .

beth said...

Alli said...

Love the sepia (especially the dandelion)! I'm a Lost fan too but my apartment mates grab the tv for Glee on Tuesdays so I end up watching a week late every time.

Hilary said...

I have been predicting a Lee/Crystal combo at the end, since day one......if we could only get rid of fat boy.....sorry.
I get carried away.
You can see I am addicted to Singing Survivor.
I love the sepia window pic.....
And NO, I am not gagging...he is a sweet pup, and you can call him as many goofy names as you want.
We have Eddy Ed head, bubba boy, sweet boy, oh god, the list goes on.

Low Tide High Style said...

Oh that dandelion on a robin's egg blue wall would be beautiful!! And I call my dogs all sorts of silly syrupy sweet names...I just do! ;)

Enjoy Lost!

These Nine Acres said...

I posted a dandelion study today too. I laughed out loud when I saw the first pic. We think too much alike some times ;0)

Michelle said...

Gorgeous photos.

I am now officially three episodes behind on Lost. I am going to play catch up this weekend.

deborah said...

I want the dandelion on a robin's egg blue wall too!! Do you sell your pictures? Sepia tones are my favorites (right now). Hoping my living room will be painted blue soon..just have to find the time!

myletterstoemily said...

that was lots of fun to see the photos
both ways. they were equally lovely.

Mary Lou said...

Love the sepia tones and love that window one any way you do it.
Lee/Crystal showdown I think. Can't do Lost. got too wierd and I couldn't keep up.

Marla said...

I love Lost. Love it.

But I haven't watched it all season because I have a night class on Tuesdays. Instead, I have them all DVR'ed and am going to go crazy watching it in a few weeks. :)

Whoa...these are sooo beautiful. They tell such a lovely story...

I am not addicted to Lost or Glee or Survivor - we don't get most of those shows! I am addicted to Grey's Anatomy however. As last night's rushed post will indicate. Heh.

Gorgeous sepias.

Hello my friend!
If it looks like I'm stalking you, Im not! lol I had to follow you again because I was updating my blog list and realized I had 2 separate lists, so I deleted the one with the smaller list and yours was on that one...but Im learning new things everyday about my settings, etc on here..which is a good thing. Anyway just wanted you to know that, because you are, I believe..the first wonderful lady that I followed..what an honour eh?! lol
Besides all that..have a sweet day!!

Mary said...

Oooo, I love all of those! I think the lilac is my fave, although the witch hazel (or whatever it is) in the vase is beautiful, too.

Isn't Photoshop wonderful? Do you remember when I couldn't figure out how to open a photo in PS?!

Deb said...

I love Sepia...great photos...Lee blew everyone out of the water...Crystal was 2nd....

TSannie said...

Beautiful as always!

I thought Idol was really good - Big Mike blew me away.

Marilyn said...

I also watch LOST and have the whole thing figured out on my blog...
As usual photos.....breathtaking
George...best dog on the Web
your idea of the blue wall....I'm stealing that....

Mental P Mama said...

M. Le Pup Pup est formidable!

Carolynn said...

My favourite photo is George. Of course. *smile*

Char said...

The Japanese Redneck said...

I luv that Pup Pup.

Oliag said...

It is Crystal or Lee all the way...but I much prefer Crystal...

Love the sepia images...especially the dandelion and I usually don't care for sepia...these may just be changing my mind:)and I do have a robin's egg blue room...but it happens to be a bathroom...it is interesting how good lots of artwork looks in there....

Daryl said...

Lost is recorded and we watch tonite so we can FF through commercials .. whee ... I get so depressed when ABC does a LOST FINAL SEASON promo ..

I like all those photos, I prefer most of them in color but thats not a reflection on you, I am not a big fan of sepia ...

ELK said...

as always your photography is stunning Kate...

becky up the hill said...

Lost did a good job of jerking my emotions around last nite..a 'good job'..how bout you? Do you think 'smoky' and the doc will be left on the island and everyone else will get to live happily ever-after in the flash sideways?..I sure like the John L. character, his face is fun to watch.

Kerri said...

FABULOUS images!

alphabet soup said...

I'll just add to the other comments about the sepia window. Lovely - a soft dreamy look. Hey, I missed the questions yesterday and it wasn't even Friday.

You should sell that first photo. It's outstanding.

Misty Dawn said...

The images are gorgeous. I especially like the dandelion image. I've been on a dandelion photo kick ever since last year. hehe

George is quite handsome. I have three Border Collies (all rescues) and they all have several nicknames and they answer to each and every name. (The youngest answers to Doodles... which is short for puppy-doodles. LOL)

Lee and Crystal have been my faves since the beginning. Lee... oh Lee... that boy could sing to me all day long... and that crooked little half-grin. *sigh*
