Other Folk's Photos

Here's a heapin' fist full o' anonymous photos from my collection. These were "found", meaning I purchased them from flea markets and thrift stores. Of course, I have no idea who these people are. I'm sure that the vintage ones are from estates of geezers now long gone. Other than that, the pics speak for themselves and there's lots more for future series.

Cool pics.

And Jeff, you have a great blog, if I do say so here in public! It's actually about great art which you've collected and it's very impressive. I also respect the way you write for adults, instead of the adolescent prattle that goes on here.

Thrift shops sell other people's photos?, and you buy them? Why do they have them? How do they get them? This is too creepy.

The creepy part for me is that I haven't figured out a way to parlay such subterranean interests into something that can generate cash-flow. Like "Found" magazine. I'm sure its publisher isn't exactly rolling in dough but "Found" is a full-blown operation disseminating so-called *creepy* stuff.

P.S. Hi Gerit, thanks for sharing your found pictures from your ongoing special series, "Portrait of America." They reveal the way "life should be" vs. "how it really is" for most of us. In fact, many of these pictures are stolen from people's houses from "Picture Robbers" in the middle of the night who's main motive is the jealousy created by their neighbors sweet home lifestyles. Here's something to ponder too.... Question: What is the first thing that people fleeing impending disasters take with them materially speaking from their homes? Answer: Their Photo Albums. I rest my case.........

Remember....one person's "Creepiness" is another person's "Adolescent Prattle," is another person's "Potpourri," is another's person's "Stupid Scarcrow," is another's person's "Bag of Glue," etc. See what I'm getting at here? "It's all relative means....we're all relatives in the "Human Race." "Life's too short to die too soon not to laugh in the face of sheer terror!" "Blah, Blah, Blah! Ha, Ha, Ha! and a couple of Na Na Na's! (actually 3 to be exact)
