FOUND by Suzanne in Chicago, Illinois
A hilarious find from a recent trip to Boulder. Found on a “scribble pad” in a church during a music recital. There was nothing on the next page, by the way.
FOUND by Andria in Springfield, Illinois
I was walking out of my local grocery store one evening when this caught my eye. I’m hoping it belonged to the vehicle of some rockin’ lesbians, heading out on a road trip to the nearest PrideFest. But part of me thinks that it may have been placed on someone’s car as a prank. I’m hoping for the former.
FOUND by Heidi in Maidstone, UK
I have no idea what this photograph is of, it was a random find on a street. On closer inspection, the photograph has that texture of many shoes treading it into the pavement. I’m pretty sure it is meant to be this way up, as there is a sign on the left-hand wall which I can just about make out as saying ‘Toucher’ or ‘Voucher.’
FOUND by Terry in Nice, France
I discovered this photo inside a 1974 folio edition of “The Stranger” by Albert Camus, bought for 50 centimes at a used book store. The quality is the same as photos I took and developed in my home darkroom when I was in high school. I hope the person will recognize himself and write to explain what he’s doing inside one of Camus’ novels in Nice in 2006. I’m imagining him as one of the bohemian American youth who floated aimlessly around Europe in the late 1960s. He is obviously an intellectual. I think the photo was left with his French girlfriend as a souvenir of warm summer evenings on the Cote d’Azur speaking the language of love.
