Here is a different take of an image we've framed before. "Jardin Borda Scene" I had a gold color mat and I didn't know what to do with it, so I started going through our files and decided on this image. I then had the image developed in sepia and went and bought a nice big brown frame. The end result is in my opinion really nice. I have a feeling this one won't last.

(Local Name: Jardin Borda) The Jardin Borda (Borda Garden), diagonally opposite the cathedral, was laid out in the second half of the 18th c. - by Jose de la Borda, the so-called "Solver King" from the mining town of Taxco. The park, restored most recently in 1987, contains terraced gardens, ponds, and an open-air theater. During their brief reign (1864-67) it was used by the Emperor Maximillian and his wife Charlotte for garden parties. The Casa de Maximiliano (restored 1960) in the Calle Galena was the imperial couple's summer residence.

This one is especially nice , Jose. Sadly, at our age we have no more shelf or wall space to display anything more. But you all definitely have talent and do a great job.
