What a cool idea! {How to display photos}

Check out this way of displaying photos:

Or if you want to get a little bit fancy:

They’re vinyl wall decals! Aren’t they cool? You can get them from Simple Shapes on Etsy. (All images in this post from Simple Shapes.)

Now, as a photographer, I think this is a really really bad idea, because you should be buying great big canvas prints and framed custom artwork. From me, of course! But aren’t these a great idea if you’re renting, or just want to have a changing display of family snaps in your kids’ rooms, or if you live in a student dorm or somewhere like that where you’re not allowed to actually put hooks in the walls? They’d make a great present for a teenage child who’s moving out of home to start uni or something, don’t you think?

And I’m quite taken with this idea, too: A dry erase wall decal!

But could you just imagine trying to teach the three-year-old that it’s OK to write on this bit of wall, but not that bit of wall over there? Aaaaagh!
