Photo Challenge - NUMBERS

Welcome to Brenda's Photo Challenge. I know that I'm early, but I'll be away all weekend and am busy at work. This time Karen M hosted it. Numbers is indeed a challenge. It has made me really think about what I could photograph for the challenge.

I am hosting the next challenge. Check back on Sunday or Monday (I'm hoping to post it Sunday night in Australia so not sure when that will be for those of you overseas) for more information. Hope that you'll enjoy it.

Numbers rule our lives - birthdays, street numbers, postcodes, phone numbers, tax file numbers, employee numbers, account numbers, pin numbers, fuel prices, appointment times, and on and on. Numbers rule our existence now that I think about it.

Hello to you all from my friendly calculator.

The foreign exchange rates board outside American Express. These days the Aussie dollar is doing pretty well beside the American dollar. We aren't doing that well against the pound though.

Hey Sharon,

How interesting! Now that's a photo we can't find around here! I remember when my cousin and I were traveling through Europe. Those exchange rates were a daily thing. I can't wait for your next photo challenge. I'll check back.

love the photos and the HELLO on the calculator is great!

Donna said...

"hello" to you too! LOL, too funny! It is sad to see that the U.S dollar has been tanking lately. Too much silly debt, so they keep printing up funny money.

Can't wait to see what the next challenge will be!

Love the money exchange picture. Makes me want to travel to far away places.
