Following on from last week’s post about what photos to put on the wall, I have since discovered that in some cultures/religions you are not allowed to put photos with faces up in the home. It just got me thinking that if this did apply to me, what would I put up? I love having photos of family and holidays around to remind me of happy times. But actually, it can be quite arty not having faces showing. In fact, we already have an arty photo up in our bedroom from a holiday in Teignmouth, Devon.
Since my post last week, I still have not got any further in choosing which photos to put in the frames I bought! I think I need a day off from blogging, work and being a mum so I can just sit at my laptop and choose photos! But for now, here’s what I would pick if I were to choose face-less photos – you’ll see there’s an obvious outdoors/holiday theme going on…
This is one of my favourite photos ever, in fact I might actually print this one out! It’s at Northalla Fields in Northolt, taken just before Tyler turned 2.
This is my second-favourite. Tyler was only 15 months here, looking out over the ocean at Land’s End, Cornwall.
And this is another Land’s End one:
This is a mummy and son one at Southend, Essex:
A daddy and son one at Windsor Great Park:
An uncle and aunty one at Torquay, Devon:
And finally a canal boat shot at Cowley Lock:
So having face-less photos isn’t as bad as I thought when I first heard of it. What I’m thinking is outdoor, landscape posts with your loved ones looking at the view, that’s what makes a lovely print. If the face-less rule does apply to you, I hope this post has given some inspiration on what sort of photos to have around the home.
