Collage 247

The Russian army is buried in mud from the spring thaw and out of food and fuel. Mud and poverty. So I thought I'd aim for a monochrome collage - browns and messiness. A
mess is what I wound up with. One of the hazards of this project is you only get one shot at the page. Once you've used the material, you don't get a second chance. So I'm not particularly happy with this effort, but it must stand. -- Otto
