I narrowed down according to strong images with strong themes, as well as trying to group the images so that they seem to go together as a whole for all three stories. The first "group" is strong images where I used a model for each different story. Then the second "group" is more obvious and simple ideas. While the last "group" is abstracted images and ideas. This way I have a diverse nine images to work with, while still allowing the stories to seem like they go together.
