We have been doing little things around the house – touch up painting, changing light bulbs, planting some plants, putting books away (so sad) and lots and lots of cleaning and de-cluttering. One of the things that we have done at all three (yes, three) houses we have lived in and sold is depersonalize. . . remove or at least lessen the family photos so that anyone could envision moving into our house. As I was doing this, it occurred to me that I could utilize my brother-in-law and his incredible photography skills. We had a couple of his photos from when he started pursuing photography years and years ago and it was high time to update with some of his more recent stuff. I mean, he has traveled all over the place and taken some incredible pictures (check it out!).
First up, was switching out the photos over the piano. I really like some of the macro photography that he had done and especially loved some of the more ‘alien’ looking flora that he photographed. I love the way these look in a series. I love triptics (umm although my OCD is kicking in . . . why didn’t I straighten those before I took a picture!).
And then second up was to update the photos in our guest room. I picked some more ‘traditional’ looking flower photos but I love the texture and vibrant color in these particular shots.
