Well, since my original might be a tad overwhelming, I made made copies of my massive homage and divided it up into eight bite-size pieces so you can see everything a bit better! This way you won’t have to got to the DeviantArt link as much either! Enjoy, and check the list below for images you might have missed! 🙂

Well, if you’re wondering I’m still working on the Nimoy collage. Every time I think I have enough I find another great picture or get another idea about placement! But I hope to have it finished by this week’s end. Thanks for your patience!
In the meantime, in my search for good pics for the collage, I came across this incredible and well preserved local TV news video of a rare Leonard Nimoy interview from 1971!! He discussed his role in the play The Man in the Glass Booth at the Old Globe theater. This was his first big foray back in to theater after his stints on Star Trek and Mission: Impossible. What he says in the beginning about war and revenge still sadly rings true today. I would have loved to have seen him in that production.
And he’s wearing his beloved plaid sport-coat.
This is a delight from start to finish, glad it was found!
You got an eyeful of plaid in last week’s installment; here’s the other photo from that series. Just a man, a dog and a cigarette. Can’t tell if this is a smoking jacket, blazer or a bathrobe. The shirt, tie and trousers are nice, but it’s too big on him and the plaid just doesn’t work. Otherwise a nice pensive shot. It looks like it was taken in a work shed out back, but I think the cute dog just wants to get away from the cigarette. ( I would too, even if it was Nimoy smoking it)
