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.
