I love to travel. I have been to some amazing places and will, hopefully, continue to do so. When I travel, I take a gazillion pictures and use them to make photo books. After that, the pictures are just saved on my computer or on discs, and I never really look at them again.
A couple of years ago, my mom gave me giclée print for Christmas. She told me to pick my favorite travel picture at the time and she would have it printed on wrapped canvas. I chose a picture of Venice. It turned out beautiful. Since I save my pictures in various places, I can’t find the one that I enlarged, but you can see it here on my dining room wall.
Since then, I have made an “enlargements” file on my computer where I have put my favorite pictures from my travels. My hope is to enlarge one or two more and put them on this wall of this staircase.
The only problem is that, at press time, there are 84 pictures in that file. Hence, the wall stays empty.
I have big aspirations to choose two photos for this wall and the use the rest as smaller prints in collage frames around the rest of the house. I’m dragging my feet though because I worry the next time I go abroad, I’ll take a picture I like even better and that will displace the whole arrangement.
