This was on the sidewalk after the rain had cleared.
FOUND by Riam under a car carpet
I found this in the boot of my car after I bought it. It’s a Japanese car not sold in many places outside of Japan, privately imported to Australia around 8-10 years ago. When I cleaned out all the carpet inside the boot I found a squished packet of photos that I gather were developed in 1998 at Fujifilm in Japan.

I was walking home this morning and I found this picture on the curbside a few days before Halloween. It is only about 2 x 3.5 inches. I think it was a sticker photo that got left out in the rain. I imagine that it must have slipped out of someone’s pocket when they were bringing in the groceries. I love how the layers of film are pealing away. The picture is great too.
FOUND by Maryanne Hamill in Cleveland, Ohio
Lake View Cemetery is one of the most beautiful cemeteries in Cleveland– it has such wonderful art throughout. People like President James Garfield, Eliot Ness and John D. Rockefeller are buried there. My favorite memorial is the angel that sits near the Haserot family plot (). I was just visiting there this weekend when I found what looked like a ripped up picture in front of the angel. It was like a little treasure just for me. I was so excited. I took it to work & scanned it, then I put the pieces together in Photoshop. This is what I found.
FOUND by Charles Casey in Woodstock, Georgia
I stumbled across this gem while doing a clean up job for a friend of mine on a rental property of his, apparently left at some point over the years by a previous tenant. Possibly a friend of the man in the middle of the photo? I recognize Matt Cameron and Chris Cornell from Soundgarden. The photo was apparently taken around the “Badmotorfinger” era judging by Chris’ hair length. I can’t, however place the man in the middle of the photo. The Polaroid was completely falling apart and the back was hanging together by a thread.
