These are photos of people that I think are interesting to think about.  I found the photos online (http://foundmagazine.com and flickr). 

The first one is of a man. 




And the second is of twins.  there was a whole flickr pool of pictures of these ladies and in every picture they were dressed the same.  They were teenagers up through old ladies in the pictures!

This is really neat. Is that a bottle cap and a key?

I love these! people think I am creepy for loving (and owning) pictures of ppl I dont know.  It reminds me of where we came from and the fact that long from now, when no one is alive who remembers us...we will be a picture of someone they never knew.  So when I find nifty neat ones, I always buy them.  There is a junk shop around me that has the most amazing peices of peoples lives! I have a picture of a young man, Earl T. Agee, on my night stand right now.  He's about maybe 14-16 and dressed in his boyscout uniform.  Its that standard black and white, make you look so handsome, picture.

I love your creations!

Thanks so much guys.

Yes, the bottle cap has a great illustration of trees and mountains and the other object is an oldish key.

I would love to see Earl T.  I bet his picture is really interesting!

I tried looking on flickr for the twins and couldnt find them. Could you send me a link? I used to go to foundmagazine years ago and forgot all about it. I love it. I like finding people lists they forget at walmart. They are so fun. Thanks for reminding me!

My mother-in-law often buys old pictures at antique stores...she then decorates the pictures for an upcoming holiday....puts sticker santa hats on them, balloons behind them, etc.    Some think that it's irreverent, but she really hates the thought of those pictures sitting in an antique shop forever!
