When asked why he chose "The Moon and Sixpence" as the title for his novel about the life of a fictional artist based on real life artist Paul Gauguin, W. Somerset Maugham explained that the title was a reference to individuals who, while reaching for the moon, miss the sixpence at their feet.
This photo journal is about finding and capturing that sixpence.

The Gift of Free Books
These books were left on a bench in a courtyard next to my favorite used bookstore. Left for anyone. Not my kind of reading, but I love that books were left out for anyone to take.
