Photo Poems: What Are They?
A unique new addition! (Well, at least a little new.)
Take a look at all the choices on this and following pages. And more will be added.
I was originally going to add the photo poems to the pages where the picture matte pieces with the same poems are shown and sold, but decided I like them better in their own special space. They have their own beauty, I think, and it isn’t fair to the etched or print-on-picture-matte pieces or to the photo poem pieces to mix them. Each of them have their own merits.
On this page, I am showing just a few of the available poems that have been texted in (or on, if you prefer) various photographs. If you click on one of the photo poems shown here, it will pop up in a larger form. To return to this page, click the “X” at the top right of the photos. To get back to the main menu, use the back arrow on your browser bar.
The poems shown here and on the following pages are inserted in or on photographs, and some poems are included on more than one photograph so as to present different looks and color options. These pieces don’t allow for personalization, but they offer a beautiful and more affordable alternative to the etched or printed picture mattes. Most of these pieces are 6 inches by 4 inches, and are sold in your choice of frames. Some pieces are 10 inches by 8 inches, or 7 inches by 5 inches, or even 3.5 by 2.5 inches.
Poems in Photographs (Photo Poems)
The poems shown on this page and other Photo Poem pages are printed on photographic backgrounds. Most of these poems are taken from poems that were previously printed on picture matting or etched on picture matting. Generally, the full poems on this website appear on 20 by 16 inch pieces, with shorter versions of the poems appearing on the 10 by 8 inch pieces, and even shorter versions are included on the photo poems. The etched pieces allow for the most flexibility, allowing the purchaser to personalize the piece with names, event, date, etc. The pieces printed on picture matte allow the purchaser or recipient to insert a photograph of their choice into the opening.
