So I jumped at the opportunity to get a triple display set of the Berg. What would have cost me a pretty penny was just under a couple hundred for one large 36 x 36 photo wrapped on a frame along with 2 smaller photos likewise mounted.
So I perused my many photos of the Berg and came up with several I thought would fit on the large space in our bedroom. Of course I didn't want something too dynamic, just some easy images of sailing, and perhaps something a bit ethereal. After all, this is a bedroom, and it is for sleeping! I don't want to have second reef before going to sleep!
Having dreaded the normal price of such a display, which would be 3 times what I spent, my pieces arrived, very well packed, and easy to handle. Each photo wrap was entirely closed on the back-side, making them a bit sturdier than if they were open. Then I retrieved some slimmer 3/8ths line from WestMarine and utilized the stainless steel Herreshoff cleats I had mounted years earlier for another display project which had come to the end of its display run some months back.
This is what I came up with...
|Center is a 36x36 and sides are like 24x30|
Not sure of the effect of this trio, I never said anything to the 1st Mate and simply let them hang...she rarely opens her eyes before getting into her car for work. Then she came out of the bedroom and said, "wow, that's cool...just enough activity in them but also rather peaceful..."
|Color on the wall here and there but not much. The stainless steel Herreshoff style cleats make for easy alignment.|
It was later at home I realized that in black and white the horizon was just nearly a straight line with the hull merging into the photograph with complete solitude...what a chance photo! So the trio represents our current state of sailing and compliments a bedroom which really needs some color as it is largely soft pastels. Makes for some contemplative moments before one turns off the lights and burrows in the covers.
