This single art photograph made such an impression on us during a stay at a Hudson, New York bed-and-breakfast a few years ago. It is an over-sized sepia print of a buffalo, and it was displayed in the grand entrance hall of the turn-of-the-century home...

The photo is by artist Valerie Shaff, available through the Carrie Haddad Gallery in Hudson. At 30"x30", the buffalo was quite an imposing figure in the entry of The Inn at Hudson.

Pictured here with the buffalo print are images of the inn's interior, from the New York Times' New Wave Musicians in an Old-Age Home. We love the contrast between the historic home and this unlikely contemporary artwork housed inside. (Thanks, Windle!)
