Mosaic Monday: Untermyer Fountain, Central Park NYC

Untermyer Fountain, NYC
Sculptor Walter Schott's 'Three Dancing Maidens' was donated to Central Park in 1947 by the children of Samuel and Minnie Untermyer.
Thanks to Olivia, for sending me a tutorial in how to make my own collages using Photoshop. I'm still learning it and this is my first attempt.
Mosaic Monday is hosted by Mary at her blog, Little Red House, where you can visit many more samplings of the day.

One more reason to visit NYC! I did my first collage in Photoscape last week of our wedding photos but my husband is insisting I use Photoshop. He's a pro but I'm not a patient learner; we'll see. Yours looks great!

Beautiful collage of beautiful pictures. I do have photoshop elements since a few weeks and I am still learning so I still make my collages with Picasa 3. That is so easy and works always.
Have a nice day.
