black and white photo display

I saw this cool framing idea from a magazine (can't remember the name of it!) years ago when living in London- I ripped out this page...

I thought it would be a neat way to display some of our travel pics but it would be great for a family photo wall too.  I chose the photos I wanted, got most of them changed to black and white (some of the photos were soft muted colours which blends nicely with the black and white ones so I left them as is) then I got some enlarged, picked a whole lot of different frames and matts, then hubby had to spend about 2 hours getting them all straight on the wall! We have moved house three times since the first time we hung them so he is getting pretty quick at it now!

oooo I'm a bit jealous! I have seen this done too, and would love to display my family photos like this.
Absolutely love your header by the way! Really original idea!!!

I love pictures done like this! I've done it on a smaller scale on the wall near my desk but I'd like to do it larger in the living room and try and incorporate prints, drawings and photographs. I might be a bit over-ambitious!

This is a great idea! We have SO MANY b&w photos it's rediculous... Now I know what to do with them!
