What to do?
I refer to this blog as a found photography site. In reality, since most of the content is purchased at flea markets, antique malls, and on eBay, The New Purchased Photography would be a more apt title. True found photography, images found on the street, or in some abandoned building, is truly rare, and very special.
Anyway, there I was, walking down the street in Hollywood, just a few blocks from the Scientology building, when I looked over and saw this photo propped up on a pipe stand. It's not the type of found photography I'm really looking for. It's clearly a digital print, and a manipulated one at that. But, it was a photograph so I picked it up. Then, I turned it over and saw that someone had written their own little philosophical tract on the back, another thing I find fascinating. Needless to say, I took it. The big question was, what to do with it. The writing would normally go on my Fair Use blog. Photographs would normally end up here. In the end, I posted on both blogs. Photo first here, tract first on Fair Use.
