While gathering my change to cash in for my Ireland trip, I decided to spend a few minutes “playing” with my money. This was a really fun project because of the way the light reflected differently off each coin. Also, I thought this photo was kind of cool the way the shiny coin was in focus, and the background as well as part of the foreground had some of that out-of-focus blur.
Now it’s time to say goodbye to these quarters, because before I know it, they’re going to become Euros!
I took this photo at the Museum of Science and Industry. I thought it made for a fun subject, and I wish I would have spent more time getting the angle and reflection just right, because I think it could have turned out even better.
