Art from Found Photographs Sadly, works get forgotten. A good eye can bring new life if one has humor, knowledge and vision. The used pictures must be either yours, from the public domain or legal rights of usage having been obtained. Be prepared to explain image sources without being defensive or mad at the moderator. This does not diminish your art, just helps with historical provenance.

Mark,

Appreciate you sharing! I wish it didn't need Flash. My iMac refuses to work with it!

Hmmmm
strange… it should!
For now, from Apple, only iPads and iPhones do not read Flash!

Have you seen the mention on the 1st page "please disable any popup blockers" ?

So more found photography links -

well not so much a link as a way of finding images -

I use ebay - type in a couple of numbers or letters or what ever takes my fancy (remeber everything you type is being stored for later use) and then have a ball looking at the images of things that I find...


here is a cool lock (it may not even be real)

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=320882410589

its beautiful...

It was a cool lock, was it a real image or not, does this matter?
