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.

121, Warning



Apologies to everyone, todays image is as simple as I can bear to do. Don't know how or when but I have put my back out and can't bear to sit in front of the computer or bend down to arrange the coins so this is it.  

Tomorrow, well that hopefully will be a different story.

120. Old Flame




Today is cheap flame day in celebration of 120 straight days of coins, but the daunting thing is its only a third of the way before I get to the finish line. Onward and upward old chums.

119, Life of Staff



I wasn't sure where the pun would take me today, I thought maybe: 'Tonight only, Treble your Clef for the same low price' or possibly just 'Staff discount' 

But then I just left it without leaving a note.

118, Upon Reflection



I don't wish to look back at my previous work but reflect on what I have before me.


I love what light does, how it changes the color and shape of objects.

117, Be Safe



We definitely are thinking of all our friends across the pond right now. We love to give you a hard time but thats only because you're tough and love to give it back 

Our rivalry in nearly everything and our remoteness from the rest of the planet make us close friends and allies and we definitely feel your pain. Our corner of the world has taken a lot of crap of late and we don't need any more. So fight on guy's and know our most sincere thoughts and wishes are there for you.

116, Well Hung



Ah yes, hangman. I used to like playing this as a kid, a bit macabre when I look back; but then compared to some of the gore filled video games around now its quite tame I suspect.

115, Simply Stacked (again)



Today is simplicity personified. 5 golden stacks of 20 coins and a splash of 15 more to prove I have them all. 

But you trusted me didn't you. I know you regularly count them to check that I'm keeping my end of the bargain. So doubt me no doubts, Cameras may lie but Honest Oscar doesn't.

114, Happy Trails



Nobody likes a showoff and we all know this is just a slug with a house. Doesn't impress us one little bit.

113, The All Mighty



I don't know why I haven't done this one before, it seems to be the most obvious $ymbol I could possibly do, so here it is in all its evil glory.

111, All the ones

110, The Yin and Yan

 

Both are glasses of golden treats, both will give you pleasure and each can bring the other. Which do you want?

109, Eye Spy


If you look hard enough you may just make out some coinage lurking on the toy shelf. To make it easier for you we have magnified it to make it more visible. Ah yes there it is.

108, Who's Foo


He's known by many names around the world, but here in Oz we know him simply as Foo. Don't know why, don't really care, he's been that since I was a junior thug and thats how he'll stay.

107, Glyph


This is the symbol of Heigen, its meaning is lost in all time. So obviously thats the end of this description. Bummer. Although with lots of lies I can tell you it is made up of 107 roundels which form this ancient and very dangerous Glyph. 

It is said (by me) that it causes immediate doom on all those who look upon it. also indigestion for those who are predisposed to this condition although I'm told its only minor.

106, The Awfull Tower


No Visit to Gay'e Crap'i is complete without a trip to see the Awfull Tower. Over looking the Seine Sewer it is a monumental metal disaster. 

Paris and the Eiffel Tower on the other hand are spectacular and not to be confused with this monstrosity :)

105, 10x10+5


Its simple math really, ten little sentinels of ten coins
Oh yeah, plus a littler one of five; equals eleventy five coins. See just simple math, simple english is my next challenge.

104, Chintzy


Tonites image just emerged while I was doodling with the coins, a spaceship started to appear and that grew to this. I first heard of Love and Rockets years ago as a comic series, but when I just did a google for it I also came up with a Qld strip club and of course the band which has been around for awhile now.

And of course, it had to be cheesed up with the addition of some color and tacky hand drawn grafics.

102.7, Trip-R


We shoot high but some times come up a tad short. Today should have been day 103 but we only managed 102.7 which luckily enough just happens to be the frequency for our favorite radio station. Melbourne's own 3RRR  

You lucky little tikes can stream it from here. http://media.on.net/radio/114.m3u and just as a point of interest there is no image manipulation used here, it is just good old camera shake. I took several more perfectly focused pictures but this is the one I liked.

102, Skelly Rider


Some say his body is made of  impervious metal and that he doesn't have a heart, some say there is nothing in his helmet but thoughts of banking. All we know is he's called the Skelly Rider.





Happy Happy Joy Joy.

I am so very happy to see I finally cracked the 1000 views barrier. 1015 to be exact.
Not going to set the web on fire I know, but for me its a wonderful milestone. So thank you everyone who sailed with me and keep clicking and see if it takes another 100 days to make it 2000.

101, Easy


Yep today I take the easy road again, yesterday took a lot out of me (doesn't take a lot does it?) so today I pared it all back to a bit of simple manipulation and color shifting.

If you want to know how its done then call me for some one on one. Too easy.

100, The Movie


video

Turn on your speakers, grab the popcorn and  sit back and enjoy.
Oh yeah hit the play button.

The production values are reminiscent of a 70's porn film, 
but what do you expect with an $100 budget.

99, Look its Susan Hilton


Now you just knew you were getting agent 99 today, after all how could I not after max was day 86.

Max: That's all right Susan.
99: It's 99, Max. Susan isn't my real name.              
Or is It?

98, Snake Oil



Make of it what you will, the carousel of an alien circus or an alchemists machine transmuting gold into electric thoughts. All I know, that out of hundreds of photographs taken this is the only one to remain.

97, Running out


Two major dramas happened today. The first but not the least, my Large Chocky Dollar got munched and all the little dollars are leaking out of it.

The second and mostest devastating is that my main digital camera fell only about 600mm on to the carpeted floor and the nice big back screen went into panic mode and now no longer works. So its gonna be a tad hard to do nice crisp fotos until I can have it fixed. I pressed my little Nikon pocket camera into service for tonite and it did a pretty good stand in job but doesn't have the same resolution.

96, He's got crazy flipper fingers


Ever since I was a young man, I played the silver ball, from Soho down to Brighton I must have played them all.

Who said nostalgia's not what it used to be. Tommy, The Who, 20cents a game down at the local greasy shop. A warm can of coke and cigarette smoke in your eyes. There's nothing like it. Yeah, sure plays a mean Pinball.

94, A Fine Collection.


What a magnificent set, and a perfect way to display them. Our coins deserve the royal treatment and should be kept in the manor which represents their worth. These are Dollars of Distinction.
