Using Photos and Free Fish

I have a difficult time finding art that I like.  Or that I think goes with my style.  So most of the time I just use photos…

It just makes me feel good to walk by a picture that I’ve taken and remember a person or a place that I love.

I also use family members…

Other than my grandsons, Murphy is one of my favorite subjects to photograph.

I uploaded my pictures to Wal-Mart.com and choose the poster size prints.  You can pick it up in an hour.  Almost instant art for a low price. Art that you know you’ll love forever.

Sometimes I google free pictures, like fish…

Free fish images

I hung these over my charging station.


The frames are also from Wal-Mart.  They are pewter and have a cream mat.

I left enough space between the table and the first picture, so when our laptops are open, the pictures are still visible.  The table looks sparse, but believe me it fills up fast.  Two cell phones, laptops, kindle, ipad just to name a few things that land here!

 Do you use your photos for art?

    1. I love using photographs mostly black and white photos as art. I love to use old family photos, i get copies of old photos at the UPS store.When they are on sale you can get copies for as little as 29 cents. You can also get your color photos in blk & white.Oh get the laser copies !

    2. I loooooooove that picture of the puppy! I almost squealed!
      I almost exclusively use pictures of friends and family. A lot of times art is just so expensive and meaningless. I prefer photos. 🙂

    3. I love that idea since I do admire my own photography more than lots of art I would have to pay for! 😉 But can you tell me, what size of file do you find is the optimal, or maybe lowest resolution minimum for getting a good result at poster size? Thanks!

    4. Hi Debbie! Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a note. It’s nice to meet you too, and looking forward to meeting you at Haven! Your blog is beautiful. And your dog Murphy is adorable too. 🙂

    5. i’ve been looking for a place to print some large photos of my kids.. i wanted to do canvas, but they’re so expensive. i never thought of doing poster sized. and wal-mart!! woo-hoo. i’m stoked!! so glad you shared~

    6. Thanks for telling us about the free pics and you know that I love that Lake Martin pic…just beautiful!


    7. Your photos are so GREAT … thinking one of the chicks should be framed 🙂 …. Tell Murphy Mr. C says hello .. maybe he should start coming by for visits LOL

    8. That is a great idea, I usually find things on the net to frame. I often would like things bigger so thanks for the tip about Walmart. Love your pictures especially sweet Murphy!
