Old Collages

I haven't taken a picture in so long, my poor camera is probably covered in dust! Ok, I may have exaggerated a little bit, but it feels like I haven't taken a picture for myself in ages.  I've been so busy lately, I've forgotten to make time for my photography.  The problem with taking pictures is then I have to tone them...I have pictures on my computer that I took in June and haven't even looked at!

Here is a collage I made of St. Louis. I didn't post it when I made it because it was a gift for my brother. I didn't want to take the chance of him seeing it before I gave it to him (I shouldn't have worried, he never looks at my blog). I tried to get pictures of the high lights of St. Louis, and yes, that is a metal tree in Forest Park. Can you tell I love the arch? I think the center image really makes this collage. It is actually graffiti downtown by the Fox. I wish I could claim it as my own, but alas, I am not that creative. I did, however, realize it's awesomeness and took a picture of the collage I gave to my brother, I made the heart red because he is a "manly man" and doesn't like pink. I shall visit him in October so expect to see a New Mexico collage sometime this year!

I was going through pictures on my computer today and I came across this collage.  My aunt gave me this really cool camera key chain. I took the pictures with the photobooth on my laptop.  I meant to post this a while ago, but I guess I forgot.
