“At Christmas, all roads lead home.”
— Marjorie Holmes
How true. And Christmas is coming!!!
Nowadays, Christmas gifts – gifts of all kinds, in fact – are problematic. It’s difficult to learn or guess who already owns what, and to ensure that you don’t duplicate something they’ve already purchased on their own.
Why don’t you do something different this year? Save yourself considerable time and effort as you select the perfect gift from the comfort of home. Just think: No fighting for a parking space; no crowded stores, tired feet, shopworn items, potential duplications, boxing mistakes, or finding you’ve chosen an unflattering color, or the wrong size for a good friend who drove in from two states away, just to celebrate Christmas with you. Plus, there’s no chance of leaving a credit card behind (only to forget which store you may have left it at), or to lose track of charges and regret it in January.
A stunning color photograph, set on canvas or framed, is a moment in time that has been thoughtfully captured and paused forever in all its beauty and depth. Art photographs are honest expressions of an experience the gift recipient will appreciate, and can enjoy every day over many years. A colorful and captivating image not only adds to room decor, but it also starts conversations, rests the eyes, appeals to the imagination, and is a daily reminder of the giver.
Leave a lasting impression this Christmas, and give a gift that will last a lifetime.

1) Starfish: For lovers of the sea and landlocked mermaids, crystal-clear waters reveal a clever starfish maneuvering over the rocky bottom of a tidal pool.

Kyle Larson can definitely resolve Christmas gift problems with his collection of his best-selling photographic art prints:
2) Leh Indus River: The Indus River – India’s longest – flows calmly past temples perched high on the hills above. The morning light makes this photographic art print absolutely glow.
3) Zion: The vermillion-tinged sandstone cliffs of Utah’s Zion National Park capture the interplay of sunlight and shadows as the afternoon sun travels across the Western sky.
4) Angkor Wat: Known for its long-hidden temples, the jungle quickly overgrew the ancient city of Angkor Wat. Wandering about in the late afternoon, Kyle snapped this intriguing art photograph as the setting sun illuminated his path.
5) Patan Square: This impressive entrance to an ancient structure in Patan’s Durbar (Royal) Square, Kathmandu, has been guarded for centuries by the same stone lions. When you possess wonders of the ancient world through photographic art prints, they’ll add color and mystery to your environment.
6) Teotihuacan: The Pyramid of the Sun, the largest of Teotihuacan’s enormous structures, seemingly reaches to the sky. It was built by hand, more than 1,000 years before the arrival of the Aztecs. Own this phenomenal art photograph and you are guaranteed a conversation piece!
7) Flying Ghost: This marvelous photographic diptych is of stunning simplicity, yet it evokes so many feelings. Visually capturing familiar concepts of cozy companionship and magnificent solitude, this divided piece is also a single image; one that raises interesting questions about seasons, relationships and destinations.
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
— Aaron Siskind
Coordinating gift info with relatives to prevent buying duplicate presents (that someone else has already purchased, or plans to buy for the recipient you’re thinking of) is similarly hard to accomplish. Stores are flooded after the big day, filled with folks exchanging presents that were so very carefully selected and gift-wrapped, in order to obtain something else they actually desired, needed, or preferred, but never mentioned. And jokes are made about presents that have been “regifted” so many times that they’ve found their way back to the original purchaser, as this year’s “thoughtful” offering from a friend or relative! Is it any wonder that gift baskets and gift cards are so popular?
Have you considered wall art, perhaps? Whether one rents or owns, every home (or office) can benefit from a stunning image or two filling a blank stretch of wall that has long begged for “something” in that spot – and an art photograph speaks volumes about the caring relationship between the gift giver, and recipient.
