A while back, I found a bunch of slide carousels. I don’t know who they belonged to originally, but some of the people appear in multiple slides, so that’s one clue. The dates are stamped on the slides and range from 1970 to 1979. Most are overseas vacation photos, but it’s the family photos which I like best.
This is one of the earlier slides, dated 1970. It was most likely taken during a small family get-together, maybe a birthday or special event. For the sake of the little boy, let’s hope it’s a special occasion! Dad (or whoever) is DEFINITELY holding a lit cigarette to the kid’s mouth. You may not be able to tell, but in the larger version there’s even a cherry (burning) on the end. Also present at the party were at least two other small children, a mom(?), a grandma(?), and at least two other men. And now you know just about as much as I do.
This was found inside a book in a book store. I don’t remember which book it was specifically, but it was a very old. This seems to be a menu someone who chose their meal from. It could be from a hospital maybe? The person, who I guess can go by the name of Chaunell, chose the cheddar cheese squares, buttered noodles, toast and pureed peaches. I like how they underlined milk and added in Sanka.
I was walking with my boyfriend to an event on Thanksgiving Day and I found this picture face down on the sidewalk. The back says “James 11-21-2012.” I’m assuming it came from the Rescue Mission down the street.
I found this old photograph along with some others in the flea market. I was pretty sad to see someone throw away a photo with such character. These men lived only 60 years ago, and no one cared to keep this picture of them.
Found this in a recycling bin near my home, and I cannot believe anyone would throw out such a perfect photo. The wood panelling, the shamed expression on the man’s face, the livid expression on the woman’s face, and then, the crowning touch: the rose. It’s fantastic.
I found this blowing in the wind outside my apartment. Though it’s unclear what the “deal” in question may be, the photographer has done a fine job illustrating what he means by “No Dinner.” I interpret it to mean: “If you don’t cook me dinner, the deal is off,” but I suppose it could mean the somewhat more unkind: “You get neither dinner, nor deal.”
