Sepia Scenes #3

01 Apr

Ketchikan, Alaska is one of the stops/ports on our Alaskan cruise.  It is known as the Salmon Capital of the World.  Tourism plays a big role in this coastal community’s economy. 

Here is an interesting tidbit I got from Wikipedia: 

Ketchikan’s secondary post office box zip code, 99950, is the highest zip code ever assigned in the United States. Most residents use the zip code 99901.

I thought this would benefit from a sepia treatment since it was a gloomy day, grey clouds, and raining the whole time we were there.  Nope, I did not enter into this establisment. Instead I opted to go inside a coffee house for the much needed warm up that a good cup of java can give.  So I really don’t know what this place sells, fish of course, I hazard a wild guess :).  Looking back it would have been interesting if I investigated a bit and was more curious so my reporting to you fellow players is more complete.

    This photo is terrific. I immediately noticed the clouds on the upper left of the picture. Typical of Alaska, I think. I so want to go on an Alaskan cruise. this is high on our list of things to do after I retire in another year.

    This works well in sepia! Yes, sepia does improve shots taken on dull days, doesn’t it?

    The treatment and the old wood makes the photo look vintage at first glance.

    Someday I’d love to get to Alaska…

    This is a lovely and very inviting photo. It makes us feel like going inside for some salmon.

    Interesting shot, and great, unusual K-word. I like the sepia tones. Seems to fit.

    I agree with the others that this fish house looks good in sepia. Gloomy days make perfect sepia scenes, I guess!

    Thanks for visiting me. I wish my cats were magical, and they could bring me good luck 😉

    Such a great shot, you have taken me to a place I will probably never see in person.

    Honestly, the sepia monochrome makes this place look like 1906 or thereabouts. A simple building that appears to be filling up with modern day gold rush miners. Simple but beautiful!

    The fish house was a great choice for sepia. It really has an old look to it. I do wonder what was going on inside though.

    I think the photo looked good in sepia. I think I have to try to take one too.

    An interesting place with the highest zip code.

    WHAT a great shot! Truly, had you not told us it was recent, this shot could have come from 20 or 30 years ago easily! And if not for the clothing, could have gone back waaaaaaaay further! Very nice!

    This photo was definitely meant for sepia! I am glad you opted for coffee and this view!

    How very nostalgic and beautiful in sepia. It is very classic looking.

    The sepia works. And it DOES look like the kind of day to be in search of warmth!

    We’re experiencing flooding all through our area and when I first saw this I thought people were wading in water. You’ve made a great choice for SS, I love the sign on the building, it’s so big.

    This is a great picture for sepia. I think you did the right thing in opting for coffee rather than fish on such an overcast day.
