I love photos! One of my favorite items to use when decorating my house is photos. I have never been one to line the hallway with my kids’ school portraits (not a criticism if you do it… to each his or her own…). We haven’t had a whole lot of family portraits taken (the last time was in 2004, so we’re overdue, actually…) Instead, I tend to use impromptu group shots or candids… something a little unexpected.
We’ve all taken pictures that didn’t turn out like we wanted… too light, too dark, too blurry, too weird, funny angle, etc. Don’t automatically delete them. You might want to try looking at them in a slightly different way. Embrace the flaws in the picture and use it anyway…
A few years ago at the beach, I was playing around with the zoom feature on my camera. I took these two photos:
- It was by a window on a stair landing (so not a very pretty background)
- It was taken in the early morning (so beautiful, rosy lighting but I was without make-up. Gah.)
