I’m Not Too Fat to Fly

Found at a girls’ high school wedged under a table. Very cute, chubby bird flying amongst clouds… and the wonderful one-liner “have a nice life.”

Giddyup

I found two photos inside a photo album at the thrift store. Both are strangely matte (not glossy) so they were probably printed off somebody’s computer.

Blue Hamster

It never got mailed. Forty years later, found in a side pocket of a second-hand old Samsonite suitcase.

Sighting

I found this trampled and weather worn note on Eastlake Avenue on my way home from a friend’s house one night. It seems so earnest and helpful– like the kid who wrote it was concerned for the neighborhood’s safety.

Feet Bleed

This was found at the Oconomowoc Public Library. Though this child appears to be very loving, I’m thinking that they probably shouldn’t own a pet.

Gorilla Love

I found this while hiking with about 15 other photos from the same roll of film. This was one of my favorites.

Simone

Found this in the top dresser drawer of a cabin we rented. I have it framed. We love Simone the paraplegic dog.

Umo Needs Ovens

I found this down the back of a sofa (looking for a pen I’d dropped) at Orange St. Music club, a brilliant venue for finds.
