5 Day Black and White Photo Challenge (Day 5)

For my final photo of the challenge, I wanted to share this image of a penny.  It’s not just any penny, it is one of a series of pennies and dimes that have appeared at my house over the past few years during difficult times in my life.  There are a couple of schools of thought on the source of these found coins, one of which is that my children and husband are absentmindedly dropping a single coin in random, strange places.  This is certainly possible. Another thought is that the coins are messages from those in the afterlife.  Yikes!

Thanks to Renee Kipp from R ‘n R on the Road and Judd Weaver from It’s A RV Life for nominating me for the 5 day Black and White Photo Challenge.
