New year, New ideas...

It's always a great time of year, when we've all this new time ahead of us, and all of these new thoughts to fill it with. I always find it exciting, especially not knowing where these new inspirations might take us, what paths they might lead us on. Well, here's a few more images that have been triggering the beginnings of my thought processes for 2012... I wonder if you can make head nor tail of them, I certainly don't know where I'm going with them yet. Feel free to comment as these journeys always take on a shape of their own when others get involved. Advice and/or criticism always welcome!
