This Train Can Kick Your Ass

Found this photo at work (used bookstore) pinned to our “communication board” at the buy counter. Presumably it was with a book that we bought.

From the Farm

I found this while checking out an abandoned farm here near St. Peter. I discovered an old photo album which had obviously been wasting away in what was left of one of the sheds. Years of weather had taken its toll, but there, tucked towards the center was this picture in almost perfect condition.

Tiny Dancer

I found this stuck to my shoe after a night out, so I’m not entirely sure where it came from. At least it was something interesting stuck to me, rather than disgusting.

At the Table

I found this torn half of a photo near to the rubbish bin just outside of a grocery shop, stuck on a fence boarding. It was so firmly placed there that I couldn’t remove it without ripping the corner of the photo off. The backside of the scrap says “photo taken 1967″ in Finnish.

Wish To Kill

The faint writing at the bottom of this photo says: “Wish I could have killed him.” I wonder who was the person who had this murderous thought. Is it one of these men, or the photographer? Did the writer want to kill the men or perhaps the pack horse? I guess we will never know.

The Stranger

I discovered this photo inside a 1974 folio edition of “The Stranger” by Albert Camus, bought for 50 cents at a used book store. The quality is the same as photos I took and developed in my home darkroom when I was in highschool. I hope the person will recognize himself and write to explain … Continued
