one of my most favorite sites is

davy rothbart started found magazine, which takes reader submissions of things they'd found on the street, in an old library book, on a streetsign, whatever. i read the print version first and fell in love - now it's like a religious following with me to collect all the zines and books that've resulted. the best part, i think, it not even the object itself, but imagining what the person behind the object was like.

here's a photo reproduced from a beaten up film negative i found once on a sidewalk in se portland. who the heck is this guy? is he camping, scaring his friends with a story about some guy in the woods with a hook for a hand? did the power go out? is he old or young? is he a jerk? judging only his grin i wouldn't think so, but who knows.
