Dear Tony: Found Letters, California Blue Line Stop
I found a series of photocopied letters, sitting in a group on a bench at the California Blue Line Stop. On walking by, I saw a guy sort of leaning over them, head cocked to one side, reading a few lines. As I approached, he walked away… and naturally, I went to go see what he was staring at.
A few things to note. It’s not a four page letter… it’s more like three different letters, grouped together. Also, one of the letters is NSFW.
Finally – I feel a little weird about reposting the letters here. They seem like fairly personal things, but I guess this is one of those dilemmas regarding found objects. They provide this glimpse into a very private world, and it’s often those absences or missing contexts that make found objects like this that much more enjoyable.
Ultimately, I guess I don’t feel so weird that it prevents me from posting the photos here, for all to see. The fact that they were all photocopies helps with that decision.
