Coin Chaos

Here is a huge pile of change that I have been collecting for the last three years, dumped all over a mattress for this top down shot. That is over $50 in change right there (outside of the picture’s frame as well). I have a feeling that as soon as I get to about $100 in change, I’ll cash all of the dead president coins in and feel accomplished that I was able to generate that much money from pinching pennies from the carpet and emptying whatever loose change from a dollar was in my pocket.

Scrape the Skies

building

This is a tall building I saw today that I don’t really know the purpose of. It supposedly is an apartment or office complex. A flag waves way up high along with some satellite and antennae used to pick up television and radio signals. The architecture of this building looks like it’s from the early to late 1950s when buildings like these sprung up everywhere as cities were quickly developing and people were leaving the countryside.

Locally fresh donuts. The glazed chocolate variety.

So much shining change in this money drop game that I finally won at (but it didn’t count because I needed to use a nickel).

Into deep blue
I sink my feet
The all day pain
Washed away
Clear blue
A refreshing fusion
Of science and nature

The quest for rain. Will it ever come? The umbrella will tell the tale.

Hopscotch

The edges of the hopscotch squares, the mirror of a childhood pastime. Many different countries play this game and the rules are slightly different in some, as a video I found explains.

Firekeepers

Today I went to the FireKeepers casino and hotel for my 25th birthday to play the slot machines and hopefully walk out a rich man. The latter did not happen but I soon figured out what the casino meant by “getting your Vegas on” because it very much felt like Las Vegas with all of the gambling, greed, and money evil filling the air. The most I won on a machine was 12 dollars but this made up for half of the twenty that I started with. I’ve never gambled in my life so I was very conservative on the machines, betting the minimal almost the whole time, only going to the next betting level when I got on a hot streak and was feeling confident, only to start losing it all again.

This picture is of a centerpiece structure in the casino. It is some sort of column with interweaving bars going around it, resembling flames rising up the structure as fire is the theme of the casino. It is something that can be perfectly framed in a picture and put on a wall.
