I was recently going through some old photos I took, and came across a heap of random tree and nature shots. Rather than leave them all on my hard disk collecting digital dust, I decided to make some notebooks to give to friends and family.

I chose 2 pictures of gum trees for the below books to give to cousins who visit from overseas, as they really represent Australia to me



I was pretty lazy with these ones, and just stapled the printout sheet to a bunch of paper. I am thinking of doing some proper books with some of the pictures too.

Please let me know any ideas or suggestions for further uses for these pics.

I think they'd look stunning as part of a "proper" book as you call it!

Nice pictures! Maybe you could do different abstract pictures on random pages of the book. Using the picture on the cover and keeping the cover one original... just an idea Cheesy
