For the PG101 "Books" Theme.

All of the images shown were taken by me. The two smaller books on top with the bug images are ones that I had printed. The rest are "Capture My Chicago" books that featured several of my images.

Comments welcome and appreciated!

A lush, and colorful collage, Michael... great detail and set-up! #1686778

Mitch Spence level-classic May 21, 2017

I love the arrangement and the variation in subject matter. A collection to be proud of. The color, of course, is splendid, especially against the pristine white. Am I surprised at the subjects of the topmost book? Nope. #11596755

I like the fact that you took all the photos shown, and the layout. #11596946

Both the photo of the books and the photos within the books are really cool. What a fine creation for the PG101 theme. Lots to be very proud of here, Mike. #11596985

Joanna, Mitch, Joy, Doc, Amanda and Terry - Thanks so much for the very kind comments! I thought this was going to be a fairly simple shot, but the layout and trouble with reflections made it much more difficult than I expected. :-) #11597121

Very impressive, Mike! I'm not surprised that this would be a difficult shot. At first glance I thought it was a PS creation! Great idea and execution. #11597279
