Treasure Chest Thursday: Two More Coins from the Collection

In the previous posts, I’ve shared what can happen when you put the same coin under different lighting conditions. This week, I’ll share two more coins from my husband’s childhood collection.

I hope that my photography skill level inspires you to take photos of the things you’ve held onto for years.

The items you photograph can belong to yourself, your children, your spouse, or your ancestors. All of these things have stories. Photograph them and record the stories before the memories are forgotten or locked up beyond the grave.
