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.

365 its today.

Today I got to give 365 shiny dollars to those who need it most. I was fortunate to have the wonderful Deb from the Animal Aid Trust give up some of her precious time and also extremely lucky to have Cooper there to accept the donation on behalf of all the dogs and cats at the shelter. (Cooper also said to remind you that he is looking to adopt a nice family and share the love)

As you can see the Animal Aid Trust is made up of many parts and offers a a great boarding environment for those who might be going on holidays soon, adoption areas for cats as well as our K9 buddies and Veterinary services.

Here is Boris with one of the much appreciated volunteers and also Stanley getting a bit of R&R, they aren't quite ready to find new homes just yet but are undergoing temperament and socialization work to make sure they will be on best behavior when they go to their new families.

Remember, anyone can donate their time or money to a shelter, it doesn't have to be a big thing or a project like this, I can guarantee they will appreciate it and you'll feel so much better as well. go on do it I dare you.

Love and wet noses to you all, Oscar the Fox.

364, Penultimate

364 days ago it started with me holding a single coin. These are now the last two coins to go into the jar bringing the collection to 365. Tomorrow marks the last day of this Blog and I'll post photos of my visit to the animal shelter and the hand over of our donation to finish day 365 and maybe then breath a little sigh of relief.

363, Brassy

Another left over picture that I really liked. Day154 used a similar picture on a TV screen and this one was left with nowhere to go. The colors really suited the scene and I think I originally called this picture 'The Guardians.

362, In plain sight

To be fair, it wasn't quite in plain sight, if you had a hard look at the blown up image shown on day 212 this little message was lurking there. Hmm you say, what does that mean, well I'll tells ya.

Years ago some friends decided that chocolate was the be all and end all of goodness. ergo if it was like chocolate then it had to be good. And by extraction if someone was acting a bit smug you would make the comment " you just think your chocolate don't you?"  Oh yeah, the peeps at Animal aid are chocolate.

Day 212 was May 30th if ya's wanna look.

361, R2Redo

I never liked the image for day 194, I tried to redo it several times but I never found a way to do it to my liking. This may get as close as to an image I can live with. 
Its hardly about the coins any more, but the original was one of the most amateur I have did.

359, Wetter

Someone left the coins out in the rain.
I don't think that I can take it, as it took so long to make it.
And I'll never have the patience again, Oh no.

358, Bunkered

Found cowering in a corner, 
I don't think the coins want to leave and end up back in someones smelly pocket.

352, Partial Eclipse.

All that you touch
All that you see
All that you taste
All you feel.
All that you love
All that you hate
All you distrust
All you save.
All that you give
All that you deal
All that you buy,
beg, borrow or steal.
All you create
All you destroy
All that you do
All that you say.
All that you eat
And everyone you meet
All that you slight
And everyone you fight.
All that is now
All that is gone
All that's to come
and everything under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

"There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it's all dark."

350, The bearded Queen

Bit of a theme happening I think.
You know this is how she looks when she's not opening something. Trust me.

343, The Thief

Caught red handed trying to make it out the door with the coin jar.
Parts of this image had to be pixilated to protect the guilty.

339, Looking inward.

I've been looking back at my past work, reflecting if you will.
Some of it great, some lazy, some I even hate. 
And some of it is framed and available for sale in the lobby.

336, Dont want to talk about it.

The footy gods were angry today, no back to back premierships for my boys.
