SONY DSLR-A100 1/80 second F/8.0 ISO 100 36 mm (35mm equiv.)

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

This is wonderful processing - I love the old look - this looks like it could have been taken during the war and preserved - nice work Judy!

The atmosphere completely changes in sepia. It gives such authenticity. I can only imagine the daily chores back then. Fantastic image, Judy.

Then the cooking ... we're spoiled, aren't we!
