“Antique” bistro

Once in a while I’ll arrange a still life to photograph, but more often I’ll just shoot something I see while walking, or having lunch in a French-style bistro….

I took this with my iPhone while having lunch with a dear friend on her birthday. I thought it needed a little some-something, so I converted it to black and white:

Finally, I switched to sepia tones and added an “antique photo” action:

Plats du jour

Quite a difference, yeah?

Hope your week is starting beautifully….

    The differences are incredible. I really like the last one. Amazing what that “antique photo” thing did.

    Love the progression … or is that ‘regression’ … that fully represents a time gone by. The last shot captures the by gone era perfectly. Well done, Carole. I hope your lunch was a delightful as the bistro appears to be.
