Show us your favorite framed photos.
First, I'd like to say that I have over 250 framed photos in my apartment. The hallway is for lovely ladies – hence my nickname for that particular area, 'The Gallery of Women'; the living room sort of began as a haven for World War One ephemera – so by the television set are a couple of photos of german soldiers who have perished on the battlefield, with the hand-written caption 'Fritz Fini'; the kitchen has food-related odds and ends – an ad for saurkraut juice – and my bedroom has original fashion prints, some Barbier reproductions, corset ads, etc.
It was fairly late that I decided to put up some family photographs. When I did, I had to hunt through my apartment to find an inch of wall space which could house these photos. I finally found that inch, though mother is still a little miffed that my photos of her as a comely camp counselor are near the entrance to the bathroom.
However. Regarding this Hunt: I'm not sure I did it right – I found a photo (two actually, which I framed together) I like excessively and dismantled it for scanning purposes. I'm just not agile enough with a camera – digitality scares me. The background is a swatch of glittering – though not so much any more – fabric that I found.
I chose this pairing because I like to show off my extremely handsome parents. Too bad that weird-looking kid had to get in the way.
