{Too} Long Time Coming: Anniversary Collages

Months ago, I posted about putting my nose to the grindstone and getting some much-procrastined (is this a word?) craft projects done.  I planned to finish these projects in March, but these collages have taken MUCH longer.  Ugh.

But they are finally done!  Conceived as an anniversary present for my husband in 2013 (!!!), there are four separate collages.  For each one, I've taken a photo of someplace we've visited, and then expanded the photo using collage materials, mainly images torn from magazines.

Each one includes a little snippet of a map image, showing the name of the place in the photo.

I originally planned for these collages to hang in a row, but now I wonder if they would look better grouped in a square?  I'll post (hopefully) better photos when we've decided how to arrange them and hung them in place.
