Winter Colors 12

It is hard to explain why certain moments in a season like winter seem a particularly effective portal into the past. Sepia is a color that sets a mood, sunlight and expressions and gestures gently frozen in shades of brown. "The Commons," a feature through Flickr that brings public-domain images together from various sources (like the National Media Museum), is worth exploring by other mood-conscious readers.

I read this paragraph a few times - it was lovely.

Maybe the pose of the woman reading disposed you to pore over these sentences with extra attention. Thanks for poring!
