Framed According to Your Advice

Back here I was framing a few photos.

Typical 8 y 10.
Typical 8 by 10.

I was caught between cutting a photo of Charlie and me down to a square or leaving it in the original 8 by 10 ratio.

The original photo file -- cropped.
The original photo file — cropped.

We all agree.

Same photo -- different orientation.
Same photo — different orientation.

I cut the photo down to a square and put it in the frame.

Are your income taxes finished?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. I remembered this post when we touched up friends’ wedding photos recently. We cropped a shot similar to yours square, and framed it for a gift. 🙂
