One of the comments on the post before this one started a train of thought that ended, a great deal earlier this morning, in these photographs.
I look in bemusement at photographs from around the world, where my only size reference is an unknown coin.
Does the same thing happen to you?
If it does, this may help – for the UK at least.
I think that, if you are not familiar with the UK currency, in addition to the variety of sizes and shapes, it may sometimes difficult to identify a coin because the front and reverse of the same denomination can vary.
This is one of the reasons why I continue to use a ruler – even though many people have told me how much they dislike it.
“…horrible, everyday, metallic, nasty, mundane-ness…” is possibly my favourite quote to date.
[Please do not take this as encouragement to send me more, even more descriptive, quotes !]
