All those years ago...

By HobbitDave
Well, not really.
The first picture is a sepia-modded version of the second one, which is the local Elizabethan Manor house, and was taken this summer.
Apart from the occupants, I don't think this view has changed that much over the last few hundred years.

Apologies for the very intermittent uploads recently, and thanks for the kind comments on my last two. I'll make time soon to see all the wonderful images and leave nice comments. Busy Autumn...

Dave.

The sepia toning in V 1 seems to suit the nature of the building, Dave. As you indicate the scene is probably timeless and the image might have been captured thus many decades back.

I love that sepia look, Dave - really fitting for an old but beautiful building. V2 is still lovely though - I'll bet when the leaves change, you'll get another great shot.

It was taken about 2 months ago Christina, the trees are definitely shedding their leaves right now. Thank you to you and to Ronnie for the comments.

Like your really wonderous 'shoes' images, Lynne, I prefer the colour version too, but hey, cold autumn evenings are fun for experimenting with sepia and the old-look...
Best to you and yours, Dave.

A beautiful mansion, Dave, must take a lot of upkeepSad. The sepia version suits the image, but I do prefer the colour. Carol

Really suits the sepia treatment Dave. I thought when I finished work, I would have more time to be on here, but seem to have even less time! Moira
