P52 {8} and {9} and A-Z

So two months into Project 52 and I've already failed! I missed week 8's "Cabin Fever" and week 9's "A Great Leap." But I'm ok with that because I was busy shooting for the A-Z 30 day challenge in February. And actually, I tied for the title of most improved! Hooray, I'm a winner!

Halfway through the class, I discovered an inspiring direction to take my series of photographs - my very own city of Chicago! Now that I have a comprehensive set of images, I can add personalized decor to my urban cozy home. As a winner in the Souvenir Foto School class, I get to pick an image for a 20x20 print. Which would you choose to go next to this Merchandise Mart framed print/painting?? I always have a hard time deciding on large purchases.

I already showed you some, but here are the rest...
A is for Apple Juice
B is for Bucket of Bottles with Balloons
C is for Cans of Crinkle Paper
D is for Daisy the Dog
E is for Elephant
F is for Flames
G is for Graffiti
H is for Human Heart
I is for Inside (of a white cantaloupe)
J is for Jingle Jangles

K is for Kimball

L is for Lines of Lights under the El in the Loop

M is for Midway
N is for Newspaper
O is for Old Ornate Clock

P is for Peaceful Playground

Q is for Quatrefoil at Quincy

R is for River
S is for Seal (of the city)
T is for Traffic in the Theater District

U is for Under the El

V is for Village (x5!)

W is for Wrigley Building

X is for Xes under the El Tracks

Y is for Yellow Lines

Of all the letters, which one should I blow up (20x20)?
