Whats going on here then?

Another Day Another Dollar is a project about doing and completing something. It is inspired by 365 Make Something
and follows the tradition of Skull-a-day. Over the next 365 days I plan on creating images using Aussie Dollar coins, each day
adding one extra dollar until I have $365.00 with which to splurge or donate. Wish me luck

I've decided any money pooled will go to the Victorian Animal Aid Trust in Coldstream Victoria. Love their work
and one of my babies came from them http://www.animalaid.com.au/ (added 03/11/10)

Today (01/05/2011) marks the six month point of this 365 day project and I may just vary the way I photograph the coins for a period. I will still be adding a new coin to the collection each day and still be posting a daily image, but I may vary the amount of coin I photograph on any given day.
Some days I come up with an idea that requires more or less coins than the daily total indicates and so I haven't been using that idea, but from now on you'll get what takes my fancy. Rest assured I will still do regular postings with all the coins for a given days total. Heres to the next six months. Oscar.

Sunday the 30th of October marks 365 days and the finish of this blog. It will be time to hand over a small amount of money to a cause that needs so much more and I hope anyone finding this site will help in anyway they can. I have had so much fun doing this blog and at the same time so much stress in coming up with ideas, For the last few days I have left I will revisit some of my earlier pictures for an update or maybe need a little nudge in the right direction.

To all those who came back time and time again I thank you, to Google for removing the Ad links and the small amount of money raised; I blow you a raspberry and think you were mean and unapproachable.

Love to you all Oscar the Fox.

28, Money is the Key

Money has always been regarded as the key to happiness, success and power, while at the same time the root of all evil. Me, I just thought it was money. I makes it, I spends it. 

Yeah OK I do covert the gold ones. My precious.

27, Guard Dog

Its all about the color, These are two aluminium dog statues I have in my chaotic collection, I have a thing at the moment with photographing objects in available light and not letting flash or additional lighting bring the colors back to their true state.

Tomorrow is White Ribbon Day, please take the time to read about it and Commit.
The White Ribbon Campaign is the only national violence prevention campaign, and it is unique in that it aims to raise awareness among Australian men and boys about he roles they can play to prevent violence against women. The campaign calls for men across Australia to speak out and take an oath. An oath swearing never to commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women. The campaign culminates on White Ribbon Day (25 November) each year, when men and women across Australia are called to wear a white ribbon or wristband as a visual symbol of their commitment and oath.

23, Three Ring Act

A fitting end to my week of icons I feel. Nearly a century of Telephony with a 1920's Candle Stick, a 60's Cobra phone and lurking in the shadows, love em or hate em the Iphone. Just one thing to say,  remember to Phone Home.

Who's 22

The TARDIS, the Dalek Who'd of thought that they would become icons. From very humble beginnings where the monsters looked like garbage bags and melted foam to million dollar per episode stories. The best ever SciFi on the small box.

21, Just so Superior

There are so many Iconic motorcycles, but there is only one that is Superior. Brough's SS 1000 Superior. As favored by Sir Lawrence of Arabia. The fastest production road bike until the multi cylinder super bikes of the 1970's. Mind you it cost the same as a small house in its day.

20, The another day another dollar stood still

A fresh roll of dollars is guarded by the iconic robot Gort from the classic space movie 'The day the earth stood still'. Oh so corny, but still a great sci-fi movie.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Day_the_Earth_Stood_Still_(1951_film)

18, Its money Jim but not as we know it.

15, Bank Robbery

Anyone with a mortgage will well know 'WHICH BANK' has recently been accused of gouging its customers with above average interest rate increases. So as all good investors should, I'm pulling my money out of their bank.

12, About time Collingwood

12 coins to commemorate Collingwood Football Clubs 2010 Grand Final victory. 20 years between drinks really makes it a timely win. And it was 32 years before that since the previous premiership. (So 32 - 20 = 12. OK its a stretch but it works for me)
