Collage Inspiration

I've been toying with the idea of making a collage of places I love to visit and displaying it somewhere in my apartment.  I got the idea from a collection of photos I saw at Target.  There was a different assortment of international landmarks and signs.  Some were in full color, some black and white, and others were black and white with a little color highlighting the silhouette or sign. Although I love to see Big Ben or the Chrysler Building in photos, I have no real connection to these places. I'm slowly working on my own collection, but here is a small sample of the pictures I have so far.  Some are recent and others are old photos I've taken that I want to include.

Lest we forget.

Limestone sculpture around the John Fernandez Waterpark.
Jake's has been a Portland landmark for me since I first visited. I don't know why.  

Indiana University clock tower.
It's the Merk, what else can I say.

I'm thinking of making this one a B/W (Bloomington courthouse square sculture)
Assortment of ties at the Highlander Festival last weekend. This is a maybe, and I know it doesn't really fit the theme perhaps.

I want to take a few more B/W photos to balance it out, and then I'll color in a few of them too just like the inspirational pictures. That's all I have for now until next time. Have a great day.
