Sepia Scenes 04-01-09: More fun at the train station


Sepia Scenes is hosted by Mary T, who also hosts the fabulous Ruby Tuesday.






This week I spent some time in Portland's train station, a sprawling old building that has all marble walls and floors and a very old fashioned look to it. I had a great time shooting photos. And my mind was seeing sepia everywhere!






I spotted this old coin operated scale near one of the gates:



Had a little fun with half-sepia:




At some point, someone tucked a little message inside the scale. Hard to say how long that's been there.

This being a train station and your sepia treatment transported me to a time that I only see in the movies.

The marble walls work perfectly with sepia. A classic train station, with beautifully tiled floors and gorgeous woodwork on the benches. Classic style always wears so well!

Your pictures are gorgeous! That old train station is really beautiful. I guess that was back in the days when they built things right.

I love those scales pictures! I also love dropping by on Wednesday nights, to see your beautiful sepia shots!

Well done again!

A lovely sepia scene. The train station was a perfect subject - so many possibilities there! The scale was great fun and I am glad you thought to include a photo of the message too.
