“An individual human existence should be like a river: small at first, narrowly contained within its banks, and rushing passionately past rocks and over waterfalls. Gradually the river grows wider, the banks recede, the waters flow more quietly, and in the end, without any visible break, they become merged in the sea, and painlessly lose their individual being.”

Bertrand Russell

      Love the image (tones are intriguing)....and love the analogy in that quote! Great finds on both counts, Jeff!

      These things make me really cranky!! LOL I'm thinking I first saw them in my youth when I rarely had the money required and felt left out somehow.... and my feelings about them just never made the jump in to adulthood! What I like about this shot is the slight antique coloring which once again brings back a bygone time. Nice!

      "I can see for miles" and for only 25 cents!
      An exceptional image ... the detail is beautifully captured.
      The perfect exhibit of what we call "A penny in the slot" machine.
