    An interesting phenomenon I’ve come across lately, is when someone finds something that another person has lost, they put is some place prominent so that it’s easy to find again. And it’s always been interesting to see the kinds of things that get hung up in various places, so I've started photographing them as them come along...

    Interesting idea!

    I love the pink hat on the post.

    I just found a ball yesterday. I through it in the yard figuring the kid who lost it might get it but it is still there. If still there tomorrow i will snap a shot.

    Lost and Found of a different nature

    Definitely not trying to hijack this thread, but here's another approach to lost and found photos. While I live in the area that Hurricane Sandy made land fall, I was very fortunate to only suffer minimal damage. Just 25 miles away, in Staten Island the devastation is unbelievable. This teen has made it her mission to reunite cherished photos with their owners. You can read the story here.

    No worries about hyjacking. That was a great story.

    While taking a walk at our local preserve today I came across this... what a nice shoe- I hope the owner returns for it.

    Great theme for a series of images. Loss and the desire to make whole.
