We have this huge blank spot over our family room sofa, flanked by surround sound speakers at either end but nothing in the middle. It's been that way forever. It's where I pictured the Marlin I never caught in Hawaii would go. Well, until I learned that they don't actually mount the fish live, they make a fiberglass replica of it, which to me sort of defeats the purpose of actually catching the fish.
I didn't want to look at it and say, hey, that's a duplicate of a fish I caught. I mean, may as well be looking at a 3-dimensional photograph, and in some ways, the photo would be better. Yeah, we could just project a hologram over the sofa, and then we could change the image from time to time. Which is probably the wave of the future, just like those electronic billboards.
You can read more in my personal blog today about the elk head my seller shot and mounted, which would look incredible over our sofa but my husband insists I hang over my home office desk instead, which was a compromise, in this piece: Open House Sunday at 204 White Oak Ln in Winters.
