I think taking pictures where you’re holding the frame is pretty darned adorable and it seems to be catching on stateside; from what I’ve read it’s been a bit of a trend at European weddings from someone to bring a frame and for the guests to be photographed holding it. They’re not too difficult to find if you do some flickr-ing or google-ing, but these two manage to be clean and classy while at the same time having a hint of quirk, kitsch, and fun. You can’t really help but smile when looking at them.
And that’s why I really enjoy those object frames. They’re so simple that they kind of make your objects seem to smile, if that makes sense. They make anything look a little bit more special, without oodles of ornate loops and curls (of your more ornate frames).
