Found Photos Tip: Buy 'em!

A good friend once advised me, "When you see a collection of buttons at a sale - Buy 'em!" The advise was to become a button collector, it was another place where things can lost or left behind. If you look through the tin or jar of buttons from a sewing kit, 9 times out of 10 you will find something that didn't belong there - a coin, a campaign button, etc. 

This week's find was the home of a collector, and among the variety of items were selected groups of photographs. I am someone who enjoys photo forensics - the art of interpreting the elements intentionally captured by the camera and unintentionally captured. Sometimes a great story or slice of life worth sharing is hiding in the pile. I advise treating them like buttons  - buy 'em! See below for just one of many more examples to come from this pile. 

If you're going to read Glamour magazine on the pot...do us all a favor and lock the door. Thanks!
