Sepia Scenes of the City.........

















I've recently been looking at some gorgeous sepia photographs of Mexico City from times gone by - the twenties, thirties and forties. It would have been cool to have lived here then.....








































































Don't you think the city still looks gorgeous in sepia?? All these shots were taken around and about the streets of Mexico City within the last fortnight?? Surprised?? This is the surreal city of magic realism remember whereby we live in different time zones simultaneously - a permanent time warp!! For other gorgeous glimpses from around the world click here for My World Tuesday. Enjoy!!

Amazing shots! Mexico lindo! I never thanked you for that piece of info about the London Underground escalator. Ta.

Hope you're having a fabulous time in Costa Rica.

Greetings from London.

I just love it when I'm caught in a time warp. Thanks for the tour.

It certainly does. Mexico has enough oomph that it pops even in sepia.

Happy new year.

Beautiful pictures, I like sepia as I belive that the colors could change the perception of the photos and sepia give some romantic thouch.
