I go from bright colored hot air balloons last week to sepia tones this week. I like the age a sepia tone creates visually in photography. With the right subject, you see a very old vintage look making the photograph appear to have been taken around the turn of the century. The subject of this post is farms and farm buildings.
I’m starting with a farm I came across in Oregon one year. It’s nestled in a valley and the morning fog was just lifting creating a somewhat eerie look
The rest of these captures are in Iowa southwest of Cedar Rapids in and around the Amana Colonies (for those of you that are familiar with the area). This next shot is part of a large old stable.
From here we go to two different hay barns.
And end with an old abandoned farm…

Wonderful, how the sepia makes it look like old photographs. Excellent work.
Thank you very much!! These old farm buildings made perfect subject matter for sepia tones!
Yes, indeed they do.
Sepia works so well with old farm buildings. I´m sure there are some stories there.
Each farm had its own unique look and I’m sure you are right!!
Excellent pictures, Kirt and such a beautiful place too.
Thank you very much!! It was two fun photo shoots!! Have a great weekend!!
Welcome 😊😊😊😊 Kirt
I like the look and feel of these sepia tones Kirt, especially the first one.
These are perfect photos for sepia, Kirt. It adds a wonderful richness to them.
Your feedback is much appreciated, Dan! Thanks! I really enjoyed both photo shoots…I love farms….never lived on one but sure grew around a plethora of them!! Have a great week,sir!!
You too, Kirt.
Very nice pictures.
You’re very welcome
The sepia tones create a wonderful mood and make it look like these images are a hundred years old.
Mission accomplished 👍😊 thanks!!
I love this. This has been a sepia week for me…. settling into the solitude.❤️🙏
Thank you very much! I enjoyed the two photo shoots and knew I’d want to give them that “sepia tone”!
Sepia like black and white works the imagination into one’s own reality.💫
If old barns could talk! And the Sepia worked perfect… they look like they are from long long ago!
I agree! Thanks for stopping by….both photo shoots were fun!!

Thank you very much for the reblog!!
My pleasure friend!
Beautiful! The sepia tones really worked with the subjects. 🙂
Thanks Diane!! I appreciate having you stop by!!
Wonderful photos, Kirt, and the sepia tones add to the aged look of the farm buildings.
Thanks Jet! The two photo shoots to capture the farms were fun. I appreciate what the sepia tone does for certain subjects! Thank for being part of the journey with my blog! My best to you and Athena!!
You have such diversity in talent Kirt that you are able to change styles so dramatically. From following you I have learned to appreciate the Sepia tones and black and white. I do see how it can create that historical mood and how details are more pronounced. Well done!
I had to chuckle with your reference to black and white…..I truly appreciate your kind words Sue. I do have a fondness for a variety of styles and like to explore in each of them! Thanks for being part of the journey since the beginning!! My best to you, Dave and your family!
Never trust anyone who doesn’t like old barns! I mean … who doesn’t. Great compositions that work really well together. Refreshing to see a whole set in Sepia … it’s been awhile since I’ve seen anyone use it, instead of B&W.
I’ve always had a fascination with sepia being used on rustic type buildings, especially old barns. Both photo shoots where a lot of fun for me trudging around these old farms. Thanks for stopping by!!
Very Nice. I hope to see more in the future.
Thanks Geri…..I have a series of those types of sepia prints on my website.
When I get a chance, I’ll take a look.
