Day 63 - Satisfied by a Quarter


I remember as a kid sometimes mom would let me dig down the bottom of her purse for spare change and if I happened to find some then I could get some candy or a treat out of one of these machines. Remember the days when a quarter was all it took to satisfy a kid.

I remember when Bazooka gum was a penny and candy bar were 5 and 10 cents! What I could have purchased with a quarter.

You may be able to one of those small pieces for a quarter these days! At first I thought you were going to say you'd dig to the bottom of your mom's purse for the candy!! lol! :0)

Love the angle you picked for the picture. If only a quarter was all it took now to make a kid happy.

My kids still are satisfied with a quarter. They always beg for quarters when we see these.

Very nice! I'm in my 40s and I still bring a quarter to the supermarket so I can buy a gum ball or some other candy.

We have a jar like this and I was just thinking it would make a good subject for a photo and then I saw your post. I love what you did with this; your angle is creative and your PP is dreamy. Do you PP in LR or PS? I'm still dying to know how you processed your train photo?
