Wall Art

I took these in hopes that I would be able to use some for art on my bedroom wall. I wanted black and white photos to hang on the wall. ~3 of them.~

I did use one of these(In black and white of course).I love these pictures of "Rosalie" This is the antebellum home where Casey and Charlie were married so it holds a special place for us.

I am using a shot of the bridges that turned out pretty good. I wanted one of this church so that I could have a "faith" aspect involved.

I didnt like the black and white of the church though, so it didnt make the cut. hehehe

I was trying to take pictures of things that had meaning to us or were part of our lives here for my wall art. So I ended up with a Rosalie shot, a bridge shot, and this large tree. (again of course in black and white)Not so sure about the tree, but I definitely want three shots. If you can think of something around here interesting to photograph that would have personal meaning to us that I must not have thought of then let me know. I still have time. I am waiting for a little extra money to get them framed or to frame them myself. I cant wait to finish the room.

There are lots of other churches around that are interesting looking and what about Mt. Locust or some other place on the trace? Or maybe a lake or bayou shot?

Penny: Dont know if the lake thing would look good black and white. Maybe you know more about what I should do with Photoshop to get the B/W shot looking great.

I love the bridge pic you showed before and the Rosalie and big tree are so good too. What a good idea to frame and use for your art work. You are so creative and talented!

Any special place at the school that you and Todd hung out? A bench - just the wall/window area. Just a thought? Anyone use a tractor - I think my dad's old tractor is still around. I took some B&W of my girls on the old tractor once and really liked it.

Diane: Todd and I never went to school together! He is waaayyy older than me. hehehe Just kidding. When we came up to VHS as 10th graders was the first yr they allowed 9th graders. Todd had graduated the year before. AND I do not want to think about VHS at home! :)
