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.

182, Heat Haze

Its hot in the kitchen, The meat is roasting, the veg getting ready and the coin sauce is keeping warm. Or is it all a mirage? Bon appetit.

Oh day 182, its almost a full 6 months worth now, but tomorrows will be more than 6 months. So confusing.

181, Solid Gold

A bit like Han Solo trapped in a solid block of Carbonite, 
our coins are trapped in pure space.

180, Milestone

Would you believe it today is six whole months worth. Well day 182.5 is to be exact.
Tomorrow starts the hardest part, knowing what it has taken so far I now have to do it all again. Half way home people, half way to happy doggies.

179, Identically Different

One of these stacks of coins is not like the other ones, can you pick which one? 
I'll give you a quick hint. Ones a bit short. No trickery, just 179 coins straight up.

178, Whats onya mind

I sometimes have it on the brain, most people would have thought it was empty, but I guess I just have a head for figures.

177, Respect

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
Lest We Forget

176, A bit each way

Balance is all we want, a little bit country a little bit rock and roll.
Well thats crap actually, I can get by with zero country.

173, New Dog in Town

I alluded to the fact earlier this week that there may be an addition to the mad house.
Well here she is, Jesse Fox
Young Jess is a pre loved 5 year old Jack Russel cross who is already showing signs of being a gold digger. I'm sure you will see more of her soon.

172, Cars and Stripes

Went to an American auto show this past weekend and came across this beautiful corvette.(I quickly wiped it off and apologized)(sorry) This would have to be one of my favorite models of any car produced in the US to date. So in a cheesy but fitting tribute, I give you. The Cars and Stripes.

171, Wild again

Back to Tarra Warra, well not quite back there, as I took several photographs that day but this is another shot from that sequence. There that wasn't hard was it. 

Hmm, whats that? is there 169 or 171 coins in that jar? Well in the confusion I'm really not sure, so you gotta ask yourself; do I feel lucky. Well, do ya punk

170, Dog 2.0

Yeah I know, you've seen this combination before but this is in for its cuteness alone.

169,In the wild.

Took the coinage on a road trip this morning, This is taken at Yering Station in the Yarra Valley, They run a farmers market once a month and I sampled some of the local produce and came back with armfuls of Rhubarb and other veggies.

Yering Station is a beautiful vineyard and winery with an attached restaurant and gallery and is only about 10 minutes drive from the Animal Aid trust who will benefit from all the coin at the end of this project. Yeah of course we had to drop in and see all the adoption puppies, we are very close to bringing home another beasty to fawn over (stay tuned)

168, Where's that thief

Even Wendy can't find that little shit Wally, I think he has pinched $10.00 from my jar and done a runner. If I see him first he wont be hard to find after that, just check the local casualty ward.

167, Time Please

Sometimes I think I may push my images too far? Originally It looked like an hourglass 
and you could make out the individual coins but what fun is that? Hope you like it.

166, Golden Rug

Ahh, how nice to be reclining in all its naked glory on a animal skin rug. 
Reminds me, must book in for that back wax.

165, Inperception

Theres a place in my back yard that distorts time and space, this is not a place to leave your beer glass.
I left my car keys on the fence rail there once and found that they would only start the horse down the road after that. 

There is an upside I guess, I dropped an English Pound there this morning and it was immediately replaced with 165 Australian dollar coins. Cool.

164, Stand in

Due to massive labour disputes this year, all chocolate egg deliveries will be done by the newly appointed Easter Penguins.

163, Merry Easter

I know its a very special time of  year for many, in the coming weeks we gather our families and talk in hushed tones of all things spiritual, Will Collingwood continue its unbeaten run? Will a giant rabbit (in some cultures a chicken) bring presents of slightly mis-colored chocolate? Will someone get nailed to a large piece of timber?

Well worry not my peeps, the Easter Irish will put their collective stoned heads together and like the proud Malcolm's that they are, they will do the worrying for us. (even so, I still wonder why the people of Easter Ireland carved so many statues to resemble Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser?)

162, Blackout

Hey Guy's, I am very sorry but there will be no Actual Coin shot tonight.
We are having an electrical blackout and I have run out of time to photograph anything.

Normal Programming will resume tomorrow.

160, How Much You Say

You saw it at $140.00 so I guess every 20 bucks you'll see it again.
If you're not happy then just drop a line to your local member.

157, Phallic Melbourne.

The latest addition to Melbourne's skyline is raising a lot of questions, although the merchant bankers are pleased. (consult your rhyming slang dictionaries if in doubt)

156, Goldie

Me thinks Goldie the Gold Fish may just end up crumbed and deep fried at this rate. And I seem to be stuck on a aquatic bent at the moment so you just might get another wet one tomorrow.

155, Old Yella

For those who don't know the reason, oh just go Google it. I was never much a beatle fan but I do like the Pop Art influences.

153, Ghosts of bathrooms past

In the shadowy world between cleanliness and my house, hide the ghosts of cleaning not done. No amount of money can undo the evil which lurks in corners not seen by man or beasty for eons. Fear the Ghosts of bathrooms past. Mwoar hahaha.
