Would you believe it if I told you that we do not have one single photo of our kids, us, or our family hanging or displayed anywhere in our house?
Not a one.
We have lived in our house for over a year, and we unpacked the boxes that needed to be unpacked, then I sent my husband off to work and sunk down in my favorite leather chair with a half gallon of Breyers Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream and a bag of potato chips and never moved again.
I loathe unpacking. And, I never take my pictures to be printed. Hence, we have no pictures. Anywhere.
I have decided to change that.
Over the next few weeks, I'm going to frame, hang, and display recent pictures of my kids, our family, and our friends on the walls and around our home.
Here's a photo that I'm going to hang in our entryway. I took this one of the boys while on vacation this summer. We visited an old, abandoned train station in Vermont and they were enthralled. I love how Rockwellian this one feels.
But, I can't decide between color, black and white, and sepia.
I love the color photo. It's warm and the red on the brick wall is so eye-catching. But, my eye is drawn to the color in the boys' shoes.
I love the black and white. I really like how the reflection in the window is brought to life when no other color is present.
And, I love the sepia. It's nostalgic and reminds me of the Old West - like these two modern day little boys have been transported back in time to an old train station.
I want to really enlarge this one, and the space on the wall is big enough to accommodate a large print, so I'm thinking a 16 x 20 size in a black frame on our light olive green wall.
I'd love your opinion.
Which one do you like best?
*I'm working on the post I promised on my camera, lenses, tips, etc. I'm hoping to have it finished for tomorrow!
