OW and Sepia Scenes ~ Tomlinson Mansion

More hometown photos for Outdoor Wednesday and Sepia Scenes this week.
This interesting building is the Tomlinson Mansion that is presently owned by the Marlton United Methodist Church. It was an overcast day when I took these pictures and as you can see, I played around a bit to try for an aged effect.
Above photo is the original.
Aged effect.
(Well, the water tower on the right with all of the microwave posts sticking up negates the aged appearance)

I did a little searching and found that the architecture is of the Italianate style, and includes a cubical shape, a shallow pitched roof with deep overhanging eaves and cupolas.

If you click on this collage, you will be able to see closer the Doric Columns and intricate corbels.
This steeple sits atop the church that is attached to the Tomlinson Mansion.

I love the aged look, but you know that I'm partial to vintage anything! Thanks so much for popping by today, I really enjoyed hearing form you.

Have a wonderful week!

Nice job, LDH! Very nice architecture. You are a good photographer and a woman of many talents! Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

Any old architecture seems to take the tone of sepia very nicely. Perhaps it is due to the oldest photographs of the classic buildings seemed to fade to such a tone as the prints faded. Very nice captures!

I like the sepia tones so much. My post features a photograph at the beginning that faded naturally over time. I remember when it was taken and it look so faded now. You captured Tomlinson Mansion perfectly. - Delores
