On decorating

You would think that as a photographer I would be able to find some pictures suitable to my liking to hang around the house. Maybe the sole reason that my walls are blank is because I can’t chose which ones to hang. These blank walls have so much potential, and yet I can’t settle on just a few photos when I have so many that I love.

Take this one, for instance. This little long-eyelashed beauty is a small Jersey cow named X-mas Candy. She was one of my favorite subjects back in 2006 and she forever flirted with my camera. She’d stick her cute cow tongue towards the lens and flash a big smile, and if that didn’t make you fall in love with her she’d bat her eyelashes.

I spent a lot of time in those cow barns back then, falling in love with the cows over and over again.

But when I think of art that people hang on walls, photos of cows don’t come to mind too quickly. Maybe that’s why my walls are still blank. Those photos that mean something to me would make my house guests think I was the worst interior decorator on the planet.  Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t Cow go with everything?

My goal for tomorrow: sort through my photos and frame some.
