FOUND by Ara Lucia on McLean Avenue and Damen Avenue, Chicago, Illinois
This sign was posted by the loading zone adjacent to the My Pie Pizzeria in Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood. I assumed the area was designated for use by the restaurant’s delivery drivers. A BMW was present when I found this.
Found on the sidewalk in my neighborhood in April of 2012. They didn’t show up on the scan, but the paper actually has dusty shoeprints on it from being walked over. It’s been posted on my refrigerator since then, but I’m moving and it has to go. I thought FOUND would make a nice home for this masterpiece of the strange.
FOUND by Ryan D. in Logan Square, Chicago, Illinois
Found this letter across the street from an elementary school. I thought it might be a love letter, and it is, sort of, but a little more poignant from a young mother to her absentee (locked up?) partner expressing love for her kids and hope for the future. I think it’s pretty much up your alley.
Found this right outside the front door of my apartment building. I don’t own a car, so I rarely go into the parking garage other than to throw my garbage into the dumpster, so I’m not sure if this was written to the residents of my building or not.
