$10 Snapshot Wall (or free with coupons!)

It’s been said, that as a people we are taking more photos than ever. As a photographer, I think that’s simply amazing.

I’m a little obsessed with documenting life, and it was that idea that first compelled me towards photography in the first place. After all, a picture holds a thousand words, and for me a snapshot holds a thousand memories.

But with the blessing of digital freedom, many of us are not printing what we shoot. And with that we’re missing out on another layer photography. We went from negatives and prints, to digital files just put away and forgotten.

In efforts to enjoy my photographs more, I’m bringing them out of the digital world to the physical and temporally filling my staircase with snapshots….

I’ve been loving catching a glimpse as I run up the stairs. When I asked Brock what he thought, he said it looks like someone’s facebook page!

I had some free prints coupons to use so all this was free. But even without coupons it’d only cost around $10, which is a small price to fill such a big space.

I made all the prints black and white so they’d be more uniformed. Then once I started taping them on the wall I decided I’d just to the horizontal ones together it looked cleaner! I like order, what can I say?

My wall of snaps make me so happy, it’s a nice reminder of the good things in life!

    The composition is really terrific. Photo walls are tricky to design. Thanks for sharing this example of a well-design space. I love photo walls too!

    Just wondering what you used for tape so you don’t ruin the wall? Really love this! btw, Stephanie Graham is a great friend of mine, love her!

    hey kirstin, the tape is washi tape which is just like a craft tape, it doesn’t leave a mark. :)
