ebay art

A few weeks ago my "Random Stuff" post got me searching for another old folder of mine. This folder dates from 2001(!) and it contains images taken from ebay. I was convinced, at the time, that the photos people took of the stuff they were selling on ebay would be the next great source of "found photography". In retrospect, three things have become apparent. 1. Almost any photo of a prosthetic device or doll part looks like "art". 2. I spent way too much time trolling ebay for wigs and underwear. 3. The next great source of "found photography" is obviously Google Street View.
