This site has moved to another blog called, ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY. There will me no further posts to this site. The new site will continue so show my regular shooting progress, but will also contain other topics on photography, such as hands-on equipment and software reviews, historical information on photography, and much more.

When it was set up, the DAILY STOCK SHOT PROJECT was supposed to be a one year project. Last year I extended the project another year due to the popularity of the site, but now it is time to move on.

If you wish to continue following, please visit my new blog at ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY and save it as a new link.

For this series I wanted to use the rusty background I picked up recently, and contrast it to create financial concepts.  Here it is with an old gold standard currency note and gold coins addressing a nostalgic look at old money.
In this instance I used a penny, the opposite end of the currency spectrum from gold.  By showing it about to be squeezed in a vice, the photo can be used to illustrate tight money concepts.  Both images were taken with the Nikon D7000 and 40mm macro lens with a stopped-down aperture to give depth-of-field that would hold detail in the rusty background.
