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.

Photo 101: Day 14 – Swarm

Swarm…

A picture of my Facebook or Twitter page wouldn’t work, hardly any buzzing there…

It’s kind of hard to get pictures of people swarming where I live…

So, I guess it’s back to the archives to try to define what it means to swarm:

Our closest ancestors to the dinosaurs, birds have always been one of my number one subjects to photograph but, of course, they are so elusive to get pictures of unless confined to one space like here.

A single drop of red in a sea of blue – still trying to figure out the intentional or accidental symbolism.

Swarming to the wheel – taken at Cedar Point

Swarming to get on one of the original rides of the amusement park that premiered at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893.

Or are those pidgeons? The shadows look like the snappy beak of another larger bird that is eyeing the smaller birds as tasty prey. But they are actually the awnings of an amusement ride since I took this through the beach fence.
