Being a photo collector, I end up with thousands of damaged photos from lots.  As long as I have been collecting and collaging, I have made use of those marred photos.  I know some collectors who cringe when old images are used for art, but these were not pristine or even interesting.  I do keep the ones that are unusual or beautiful for my photo collection even if they are damaged. 

The collages shown here were made either yesterday, or last year.  I like working with the photos on board, but I also have a very large group of snapshot collages that I have made over the years.  I have plans to put those in photo albums.  I will show some of those in a future post.
