Each of us chooses the tone for telling his or her own story. I would like to choose the durable clarity of a platinum print, but nothing in my destiny possesses the luminosity. I live among diffuse shadings, veiled mysteries, uncertainties; the tone of telling my life is closer to that of a portrait in sepia. - Isabel Allende, Portrait in sepia

These photographs - both taken at historical museums - seem to speak directly from the past with the addition of autumnal sepia tones.
