Devil Out!

My boyfriend says this is probably a Mormon baptism and that it’s an important rite of passage, so this photo is probably missed. Most of the time I’m happy not knowing about the things I find but I wish I had found the entire album. I’d like to know more about this kid.

Hey God, Thanks

I found this while working the returns desk at my job. A woman came in who seemed to be in a rush.

Genesis

I found this a while back in the parking lot of a Lowe’s Home Improvement warehouse.
