William Waldron, again

Posted on Mon, 27 Aug 2012 by KiM

You can say we’re quite smitten with the photos created by New York photographer William Waldron (yep, uh huh, fo sho). His portfolio always rocks my world. Such cool spaces he has the pleasure of visiting and capturing and sharing. Here are some more for your viewing pleasure.

Leaning against the wall

Nonchalantly leaning. A relaxed group just biding their time. Leaning. Cool photo by yesterday’s photographer hero David Prince.

Photography as art

Posted on Tue, 23 Aug 2011 by KiM

I was nosing around in my inspiration folder and I have in there a grouping of art photos. In just about every one of them was photography as art. I much prefer photography hanging on my walls than paintings or other forms of art, as the graphic (and no-need-for-interpretation) quality appeals to me. Here are a few of these photos that have captured my interest for quite a while.

Stalking the art collector

Posted on Thu, 10 Mar 2011 by midcenturyjo

5 bedrooms, three bathrooms, great suburb (Darling Point, Sydney), huge house and most likely massive price tag. Stalking tends to be expensive. What I love most about this particular house though is not the space or its white brightness, its lovely courtyard and pool or the stunning “wilderness” of a garden. No what I drool over in this house is the art collection. Oh to have my own walls covered in such fabulous (and large) works. Perhaps I could just about afford the hall with the tribal pieces… perhaps 😉 Link here until it is sold.

Reader request – leaning art

Posted on Fri, 21 Jan 2011 by KiM

This week’s reader request comes from Jessica: My husband and I have a ton of art. Not any fancy-pants stuff, but a lot of small and medium sized things, mostly framed, that we’ve picked up on our way through life. My problem is this: We have more than I want to hang at any given time, but I don’t want to just store the extras and forget about them. I really love the look of art leaned against walls, on shelves, etc. but I can’t convince him that it would look good without examples. Could you help me find inspiration photos of art, beautifully displayed, leaning against walls or on shelves? I love “leaning” art – it’s a great versatile solution for people like me who get visually bored very quickly and saves your walls (especially handy for renters!), plus I love the casual feel it gives. So here are some photos of art not hung on walls in the traditional, expected fashion.
