I did pin a print up over my basement toilet once years ago for that very reason and I came to love it but only in that context. I know if I ever take the photo down it will join the reject box and I like it too much for that. It is like an old friend that has turned kind of yellow and has an unfortunate coffee splash on it.
My wife is a help in that if she likes something I know it is appealing to the artless masses. If she doesn't like something it has a chance. Nah she isn't that bad... but sometimes it seems like it.
