Last week's question from Jill about what to hang over her sofa got us thinking about a favorite DIY option, introduced to us by a co-worker. Walking by his office one morning, we noticed a stunning poster-sized photograph of trees in his office that compelled us to hang around his door like some kind of pathetic rock groupie, hoping to learn the artist's name. When he finally looked up from his desk, we stammered out the question and he spilled the secret...

It was his own photograph, which he had had blown up at Icon on Wilshire. The army green building across from the El Rey is where the pros go to have their photos processed. These guys know how to manipulate an image; they can saturate the colors, transform a color print to black and white, and perform any number of other miracles in taking a photograph from blah to ah. Email them a favorite photo or a scanned image and talk to one of the technicians about transforming it from so-so to stunning.
