Day 198: Tokens of a former life10/03/2012 - 11:06 PM
This is a collection of some the State quarters that I accumulated before leaving the US a few years ago. Unfortunately there were another ten circulated after I left, so Iíve not got the full set. However, I do have one for each of the eleven states I have set foot in, so thatís something at least. What Iíve tried to do with this shot is to angle the coin for the state that Iíve spent the most time in, and come to feel the most affection for, so that it caught more light than the others. The Pemaquid Point lighthouse which appears on it is one of over 60 lighthouses in Maine, and one which I photographed on my last visit.
