Photo Corners

1″ x 1″, found objects

I have a few old photo albums that still have sticky photo corners to hold the photos in. Some of the photos have slipped out, leaving empty corners and a blank space that must have been filled with something important. I loved the way the corners made the photos look official, and chose them among all of the other images to be displayed. I also loved that they allowed old-fashioned cropping. I could cut the photos down to share just a section, and place the corners to make any shape. These days we barely print photos, no less display them carefully in an album. If I made a paper album now, I’d want to show off each picture with these golden corners.
