October Haul

This was tucked away in an old photo album being sold at a Goodwill-type store in Sioux Falls. There were more pictures of these brothers (?) in their hunting gear.

The Masked Men

Found in beat-up secondhand copy of The Abomination by Paul Golding.

Tricycle Bandit

I found this in a mix of of old slides from a thrift store that I bought to test out a projector I found on the street earlier that week. Good news, the projector works like a charm.

Kill the Rabbit, Kill the Rabbit

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.

Double Heeled

This photo was found in a drawer in a classroom of the alternative high school I attended.

A Proud Moment

I found this on the curb behind a house whose contents were being liquidated after the owner’s death. This color xerox, sloppily scissored and pasted onto a plain white sheet of paper, then tagged with a pre-printed caption, seemed like such a mix of forethought and complete carelessness I had to wonder who made it, … Continued

Shook

I found this in the pocket of a coat from the Salvation Army– this old, poofy coat had this picture in the inside breast pocket. It’s beautiful.
