Good intentions and too many project ideas are often my undoing.
So, I am always happy when I am able to see one of them to completion. I’ve shot lots of photos of the Seaside beach pavilions over the years, but somehow I never seem to have good shots of all of them. Here’s a link to the story behind the design of the pavilions.
On our trip this year, I made it a point on the walk about days to get lots of photos of ALL of them. Unsure of how or when I might use them, but knowing it was a project in the making. Thinking about it, I remembered a collage frame purchased on impulse that had nine photo windows. Perfect for the eight pavilions plus the Seaside sign!
With a rare day off that was not filled with appointments and to do’s, it was a great opportunity to give myself a vacation revisit. These are the images I decided to use. I had already selected and edited most of the pavilion shots, but I still had to make the final choices, get them printed and in the frame and hung ~ without breaking anything. I tend to drop things ~ a lot 🙁 .
Maybe it was not pushing a work deadline, or an appointment deadline, or just good vacation karma ~ but I finished my project without any trouble today. The only challenge was deciding which photos to use. I put them all and some extras on the Facebook page if you want to see the extras. Hope you enjoy some good vacation karma too!
I hung the frame in the entry with a previous furniture refinishing project and my Zen beach jar. It’s another spot of happiness from my life enjoyed ~ that I can appreciate everyday when I am running out the door. A great reminder to “keep calm and pretend you’re at the beach”!
PS> Here’s the final framed product. The photos are each 4×6, and this shot doesn’t give much of the actual effect, but you “get the picture” ~~~Bwg
