Rome

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Hey, is posting photos like this an ok idea? Is it obnoxious? Or do you prefer larger pictures? I can't decide and I had too many photos that I was excited to show.  Do you remember when we had to develop film and then go pick it up and then plan a time with our friends to flip through the actual photos to show stuff like this? Those were the days!

You can watch my photo blog for better displays in the future. Currently there are photos posted of walls. Because I walked around Rome and Florence taking pictures of them. Seriously. I wish I were a passerby seeing me while I was doing that!

A gorgeous mosaic, so is very good. A greeting.

Diana said...

I love your photo board....it gives you a little peek into your amazing adventure. Love the photo of you eating ice cream! BEautiful photos. LOVE IT! Happy Day! :)

Kristina said...

In general I like those boards, but I would also love to see some of the pictures larger! Rome is too pretty to just being looked at in such a small size :)
And, hey, I have gone back to all those excitment of developing film, picking it up etc.! I am in love with my old Kodak, it is so much fun! ;)

Cara said...

I kinda love it!

Jessi said...

ivy's closet said...

This is a great way to do this. Wow..

emily jane said...

I think it's lovely!

Cat said...

Ummm...LOVE THIS! It is like a virtual scrap book (in a cool way!). I adore this as the solution when you want to show us a group of pics (too many pics, too little time scenario).

I am so excited that you took this trip and love the fact that I can live vicariously through your photo journey :)

Katelyn said...

So jealous! Looks like you had a great time!

P.S. I'm having a royal wedding week giveaway! Check it out! :)

Sara said...

I like it, in fact I was googling to figure out how to do that.
I do agree, that posting big travel pictures is a good idea too; gallery like to catch our interest.

Jenny said...

I think how you have them is just fine. Ahh, Roma!

Hollie said...

The more I get into photography, the more I like to see every little detail of a photograph.. but I do love mosaics.

Mary Lou (not really a pseudonym) said...

Oh Rome, I miss you!

I like it because it gives us readers a general idea of the things about to come. Wish I knew how to make these mosaics...

Tine said...

I like it, looks like a moodboard. I think it depends on the topic. Beautiful pictures anyway!

andrea despot said...

hey, it's your blog! do what you want! though i do kinda wish they were larger so i could see them better. i'll keep an eye on your other blog though :)

Eva @ Four Leaf Clover said...

I really do love this collage view, but I hope you show u at least a few photos of buildings and such to get a better view. I'm so jealous of your Italy trip and want to see as much as possible!

Jess said...

I love it Krystal! How did you make the collage anyway?! Such a great way to show off a lot of pictures without overwhelming...

Teenage Bride said...

Mary ♥ Mur said...

♥ Oh. Nice post.) Love your blog.)) ♥

Leia said...

I *really* like the collage of photos, but I think it would have been nice to see bigger images, perhaps just of your favorite shots?

Ah the days of developing film... I remember those! (Albeit just barely!)

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

I think a mix of collage and regular sized pictures are great. Your trip looks amazing and I see nothing wrong with taking pics of walls. Some of the coolest pics.

Blace said...

I really like it. Big pictures are good usually, but this gives us a good overall picture of your travels!

Kate said...

I just click on the main photo and it brings it up larger, so either way is OK for me :)

I miss the days of film - it was great fun having to wait to see what the photo's were actually like. (Although I do like being able to instantly delete the ones where you accidentally take five photo's of your toes, and stuff like that!)

Marisa said...

Love it! And so jealous, I would looovee to go to Rome. It looks amazing from your photos!

Dancing Branflake said...

I love larger photos because 1. It's Rome and 2. You are so freakin gorgeous.

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

I like it, it's a cool way to show all of your pictures! Super fun :)

marissa from the boot said...

no way, not obnoxious at all! (because i would have done the same!)
i'm so glad you had fun!
p.s. i loveeeed getting my pictures developed! after all the proms there would be lines out the door with girls and their disposable cameras! ha!

Kristin said...

I think this is a great way to give us a glimpse of your trip!

Nikki said...

I think bigger is better! *wink*

I don't mind small collages but my weak eyes can't see them that way.

Chelsea Lane said...

this is LOVELY. looks like such an amazing time, can't help but be a teeeeny jealous of your amazing adventures! :)

the clothing menu said...

Haha about you taking pictures of walls! I like looking at the pictures in that big tile format. You can see it all at once - looks like a fun trip!

I too like the photo collage approach but also like some large photos so as to see the full splendor of the image...looks like a fabulous time!

Fashion Cappuccino said...

Hi Krystal! I love the way you put all the photos together like that! It's like a little scrapbook! Looks like you had such a great time in Rome! xxooxoxo

Maggy said...

No. I like the photo walls. I mean, not all the time, but they get the job done - and blogging needs that. A moving sidewalk of photo productivity if you will. I can't wait to go to Italy...when is the best time do you think?

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

I think it looks gorgeous! A gorgeous snapshot of your lovely trip. Off to look at more on your other blog now :) xoxo

I like this way of showing them, it looks great!!

Charlotte said...

I like this photo format - gets a lot of information across, in a clean, clear format, without having to do a lot of scrolling.

And oh yeah, I remember the days of developing photos. So quaint. :)

Yippppeee you got your photos! Phew they turned out fab....I like this, it's nice for a change.

God remember those days....funny I remember myself & my friends went a little crazy partying after we finished school, all photos were taken on a disposable camera & lost! God only knows what was on them & where they are today! Maybe it's best we don't know ;)

mienkintoshfairie said...
