NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity is spending the seventh anniversary of its landing on Mars investigating a crater called "Santa Maria," which has a diameter about the length of a football field.

This scene looks eastward across the crater. Portions of the rim of a much larger crater, Endurance, appear on the horizon. The panorama spans 125 compass degrees, from north-northwest on the left to south-southwest on the right. It has been assembled from multiple frames taken by the panoramic camera (Pancam) on Opportunity during the 2,453rd and 2,454th Martian days, or sols, of the rover's work on Mars (Dec. 18 and 19, 2010).

NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity used its panoramic camera (Pancam) to capture this view of the rim of Endeavour crater, the rover's destination in a multi-year traverse along the sandy Martian landscape. The image was taken during the 2,226 Martian day, or sol, of Opportunity's mission on Mars (April 28, 2010).

This is going to be a bit unconventional. I have the feeling I'm probably going to get a lot of disapproval for this, but the subject interests me.

Wallets. Almost everyone has a wallet, and no two are the same. Wallets can sometimes say a lot about a person and their life. It's quite amazing, the stories behind a small stitched up piece of leather or fabric. So I want you to get your wallet, and take a picture of it. Set it out however you want. Just put it on your desk, or open it up and layout the contents around it. If possible, write something about your wallet and any of the contents you are showing us. Tell us the stories and journeys behind it. Or lay it out well enough that people can try and make their own stories for it, decipher who you are.

This is mine. I travel frequently. I can't drive, at least not legally. I live in Australia.

(No camera.) Since I have to walk (or run) everywhere I use a backpack for travel gear and anything else I might need to carry (extra clothing and/or stuff I buy.)

It's pretty beaten up from when I moved with it. I have a bunch of duck tape on the bottom of the biggest pocket. I need to find some material to patch it up with that won't get eaten by the contents of the bag over time. (Or at least very fast.)

My wallet sometimes draws funny looks.

It's adorned with Jack Skellington (of Nightmare Before Christmas fame). I've been using it for the past 5 years. It's certainly not a proper wallet like in OP's pic, it's more likely made for kids. For whatever reason I can't let go of it quite yet anyway.

I wasn't that much into the movie, but I bought this in Disneyland Paris all those years ago. It reminds me of that place. It reminds me of my first girlfriend. It reminds me of lots of things. When I see that stupid skull grinning at me it's like a link to the past. I've been repeatedly told that I should get round to buying a "real" wallet now that I'm getting older, but I think I'll put it off for a while yet.

no pix at the moment but I'll try later

Brilliant idea for a thread. Wallets, like a lot of other objects, can say a lot about someone I suppose. Reminds me of Wallet by Regina Spektor.

"I'll take your wallet
to my local blockbuster
they'll find your number
in their computer
you'll never know me
I'll never know you"

I can't take a picture of my wallet, since I've lost it. Again. I have awful short term memory, which means I leave stuff all over the place and then forget where I put them, or just drop them somewhere. So I end up replacing my wallet and credit card pretty often.
It wasn't that interesting anyway. Black leather. A few Swedish crowns. Don't remember how many, hopefully it wasn't much.
A business card from my psychiatrist.
A bunch of faded reciets from the local bar and cheap supermarkets, and a condom that's been there for years even if I know I'll never get to use it. Mostly kept it as a sort of talisman, I suppose.

Not really sure what all that says about me and my "journeys", but there you go. I honestly don't think wallets are really as romantic as OP thinks, but what do I know.

>>I honestly don't think wallets are really as romantic as OP thinks, but what do I know.

It's not that I think wallets specifically are romantic, I just find little personal collections of things like this fasinating. It can be completely insignificant to most folks, yet to yourself it can mean the world. And all those little items have a story behind them. A little story that only you know.

Helps you get a sense of how big the world is and all that goes on beyond the scope of your own eyes, if you get what I mean?

I'm totally not going to post my wallet on the internet (way too much personal info in there) but here are my keys. I think the same applies to keys as wallets.

>>9340 I perfectly understood what you wrote the first time, thank you.

I'm not saying that I don't why and how one would attach emotions to the content of their wallet, just that I personally don't and can't do it.
That's not to say that I haven't tried to carry around memorabilia such as old tickets, photos of my family and so on. But they always get lost somehow or get in the way for all the other cards and paper I carry. So I keep them in my head instead, saves space.
You feel that trinkets like this are important, and that's great for you. And many people don't, which is great for them. Doesn't mean that they don't comprehend that there are people who carry memorabilia in their wallets.

When you undertake the grim thought of disaster photos as art it opens up a lot of emotions that artists can't touch. There's something poetic about a few of these images that isn't in a lot of the stuff on scenic. I can't quite express what it is though... something along the lines of the ancient holy structures standing tall in the wake of the modern crumbling buildings. It's a thought provoking sentiment:
"How many times has this happened in thousands of years?"
"Did the ancients know?"
"Is this a sign of divine protection or divine wrath?"

The unfortunately banal truth is, shinto gates have no complex structure - they keep standing.

"Modern sea walls failed to protect coastal towns from Japan's destructive tsunami last month. But in the hamlet of Aneyoshi, a single centuries-old tablet saved the day.

"High dwellings are the peace and harmony of our descendants," the stone slab reads. "Remember the calamity of the great tsunamis. Do not build any homes below this point."

It was advice the dozen or so households of Aneyoshi heeded, and their homes emerged unscathed from a disaster that flattened low-lying communities elsewhere and killed thousands along Japan's northeastern shore."
