You meet the NICEST PEOPLE ONLINE


A friend, an online friend, has been very kind to me today. He has done a post on one of his popular collector blogs, Dull Tool Dim Bulb, about my little corner of the universe. I'm not used to compliments and I blush thinking about this kindness. But I am also eternally grateful that he saw something in what I've been doing. That's all I've ever hoped for here. That people would enjoy my finds and get a good laugh or perhaps take a moment to see things with a different perspective.

So thank you Jim Linderman. You're a very kind man. I urge others to find out more about him from none other than the New York Times which ran a great piece about this amazing collector. Then you'll understand why he's such a cool fella and that it's an honor to be noticed by him.

I hope this shot makes everyone smile, no matter how bad or good your day has been. This snapshot is from my book Tattered and Lost: Vernacular Photographs, available at Amazon for $11.16.

  1. Not sure why but the photo is on its side and badly distorted on my screen. Will go to have a look at Jim's site. It has been a while since I was there.

    1. That's weird, but I believe you. On my screen it's correct, but when I look at it in Picasa it is rotated. I've fixed it by replacing it.

    2. Saaw the photo I last said was missing (but wasn't) OMG what a beauty and to have the pair!!!! I was wondering if my comp was playing tricks on me - guess you were, too. The above looks perfect now.

    4. It did make me smile when I found it. Probably a little snicker too.

      Sorry things got goofed in the posting of it.

  2. Looks like they are having a wonderful time in the photo! Just as I have reading your blog.

  3. I just read your interview. It seems like your approach to collecting photos is similar to the way I collect postcards.

    1. We're a strange breed. And I used to collect postcards. Still occasionally do. I have probably only around 1500, + or -.

  4. wow, that is an honor. I've been following Jim's blog ever since I read about his paper doll collection in Folk Art magazine, and one of the editors there highly recommended his blog. I haven't been there in a while, so I popped in today to see T and L featured. That is terrific. OK, now I'm going to look at the previous post with the paper doll in the photo...
