The not-for-anal/OCD-types photo display

I was reading DesignSponge's post about Fiona Douglas of Bluebellgray, and while I think the designs are perfectly lovely (many more photos in the DS post), this particular display would push me to the brink of insanity. Just looking at the photo of it makes me want to straighten at least 6 of the frames. But what does that reaction say about me? Hmmm. I will just choose to ignore that question, and instead will invite you, dear readers, to share your own reactions and/or photos. If anyone would like to share a photo of how you display photos in your home (I promise I won't ask to straighten them), email me a photo or put a link in a comment. I am very interested in real life examples of how you display photos.

I love this. I have a display very similar to it but with black frames. No plates though which I find to be a great addition. Something to try... one more thing to buy...

Nice but way too much for me too! I like one photo, one wall, changing all the time with lotsa white space.

I always enjoy walls like this when I see it in a Pottery Barn catalog or on the staircase when I watch "Modern Family" but I'm not brave enough to try it myself. I'm afraid that I'll get them crooked, the hodge podge wouldn't look so shabby chic, the kids would knock the photos done as they walk by. We bought a house that the previous owner did this and there were 50 nail holes to be patched, I don't want to mess with that again either. So I like it in theory but I would want a professional to do it for me!

Glad to know that I'm not the only one who is OCD about straight pictures on walls. This wall would drive me crazy! The one thing I hate about hanging photos like this is that they tend to get lost....too much going on, but I do like the "Eggs, Toast & Jam" :)
