The Rockaway Times
Holy General Custer, get a load of former Fat Man columnist
Bruce Bernfeld toting a rifle with a pink Rockaway Times tee
out in South Dakota. We guess he needed the rifle while walk-
ing around like that in cowboy country. Meanwhile Pat Morgan
sent us this great shot from Dublin. He’s standing next to a stat-
ue of Thin Lizzy guitarist Phil Lynott who looks at least as lively
as some of the members of SolShyne, the band Pat plays with.

Anyone can display family
photos or photos from trips
they took, but if you get a little
creative, it will get your pic-
tures noticed. Here are a few
ideas on displaying your pho-
tos in a more creative way.
Family Tree:
Places like
Amazon sell “Family Tree
Wall Decals.” There are differ-
ent styles to choose from and
they are easy to apply to any
wall (just follow the instruc-
tions you get with your decal).
Once on the wall simply hand
photos of family in line with
the branches. This is great for
showing off your family tree
or using each branch to show
your child's photos as they
grow up.
Photo Mobile:
Another way
to show off your photos is a
Photo Mobile. They sell pho-
to mobile kits online, but I
like the homemade ones bet-
ter. The best ones I’ve seen
were the simplest to make.
Once you know where you
want your photo mobile and
how many photos you want
to hang, put a small eyehook
in the ceiling for each photo.
Using clear fishing line, hang
photo sleeves (available on-
line) at different heights and
Picture Perfect
insert your photos. The photo
sleeves allow you to change
the photos from time to time
if you like. This is great for
displaying photos of trips and
you can update them when
you take new trips.
Frame in Frame:
shops sell framed photos for
cheap. This is a good source
for larger frames. Take a large
frame (without a picture or
backing), mount it on the
wall. Take a second frame
(with your favorite pho-
to) about half the size and
mount it center of the large
frame. Then hang smaller
(unframed) photos around
the smaller frame (but in the
larger frame).
There are many more ways
to display your photos, if you
have ideas you would like to
share send them in, I may use
them in future articles.
