A Penny for 100 Thoughts

Let's see if there are one hundred thoughts upon seeing this image of a penny floor, converted to an "amazing circle". The original is a shot in the dark of the inlaid floor of the Hotel Congress, Tucson, Arizona. I liked taking an image of multiples, and then turning them back into one "penny" of copper texture. Some of my friends and contacts will know just why I picked this title, in another metaphor.

    Outstanding, Cobalt!!! I totally agree with rgdaniel!!

    However, it's far too early in the day for me to have any 'thoughts'...*+^

    Seen in some comments. (?)

    I think we made it: posted about 60 pennies on this day and there are so many comments and views here! So many friends came to see this penny made of pennies, wow. Thanks to all who visited this photo, but more importantly, ALL of us on flickr have shared so much and that, my friends, is a most BEAUTIFUL thing!

    One could say that Flickr is its own world with myriad interlocking circles of friends and interests and inspirations. And the many make One. One big Flickr World that is. :)

    BJ, I'm so glad you are one of my many Flickr connections. :) And glad that you are enjoying some David Brin, too.

    @pegster22: I heard the penny now costs about 1.2 cents each to produce now! But the government will not be able to convince the public to get rid of the penny. The attempt last year to "round up" change to avoid pennies was defeated.

    because of illinois. lincoln and all.

    100 views for the 100 thoughts, costing just a penny!

    It has been fun to get around flickr to my friends and contacts this weekend and catch up on what everyone is up to. I think I must have added quite a record number of faves in the last two days. Either everyone is getting better, or I just found so much joy to see. Thanks, everyone!
    Seen on your photo stream. (?)
