birds gotta swim, fish gotta fly

This is a bit of a stretch for the theme, but I'm saying that the place in this collage is the sky, our atmosphere, where this aviatrix presumably likes to be, high up.

Ice Cream Mountain

One from the archives to start off with.

Theme: There's A Place.

Geographically speaking, a collage about a place.
Anywhere, really… a town, a country, a planet or a favourite shop… etc. Real or imaginary..

This is my last turn at the themes for now as June ends.
Many thanks for all the great collages the last couple of months.
