Our poster isn't talking about a few pictures, but many many pictures.
I'm an elder woman with no present male lover (snort, oh, if) but in any case, my hallway wall would be the same, modified - it is packed with photos of my family and some of my painting photos and all of my dogs in life photos, and dogs in italy photos, and my pencil drawing of my ex husband decades ago, and photos of italy and photos of us in italy.
That is not what the guy is doing, he's got a shrine there.
That is a problem.
Oddly, no one has ever seemed to even look at these photos on visiting me.
Odd, relative to my experience in California, south or north, people were interested in this stuff. We looked at stuff on walls.
Lack of curiosity here. There may be reasons for that, having nothing to do with me, but a surprise to me. I was surprised when Dys and Diane didn't want to see my photos at all..... albums, I have albums, at the least.
What makes sense of that is that Dys, a very good photographer, had his photos decimated, ex wife if I remember. And Diane doesn't want photos of herself, mostly, though she has beauty.
I see I am way off topic, but maybe not. Caring about photos can be a deep subject, especially for a widower.
