Found photos are only as entertaining as your faculty to fill in the missing stories. Some people get sucked into that process and love it, others look at the finds and say "so what?"

Here's our own Paris!

Joke dude, please don't fly off the handle at me.

Are these supposed to be randomly found photos? Most of them seem to belong to the same 20-something subculture or group of friends.

Whoops

>these were found by doing a search using p2p programs.

These aren't found photographs, but culled from shared directories. Explains why there are large groups of the same people.

Wooh! Don't mess with this bad mofo, or he'll bust a cap in your asspack.

Great stuff, there are some real gems in there.

Some super pix here, thanks. There's one on the first page that looks a hell of a lot like lou reed.

There's so much drama and pathos in this photo. Whomever selected these images did a great job. I just wish they'd hvae put a little whitespace between them.

The best "found" photos are at Found Magazine.

Excellent. Scarabic is right about filling in the stories for the pics. You either love this kind of stuff or you don't dig it at all. I love it. Thanks, hama7.

Good idea.

Scarabic, I missed this one. I'm astonished by the fashion requirement to display one's Hello kitty boxershorts way up outside the trousers. I'm guessing it's Hello Kitty, I can't see the actual design. The background looks a bit too grey to be Hello Kitty to be honest, maybe it's little fluffy sheep, or Totoro.

oops, stray additional quote mark in link

That was great. Funny, and a bit poignant; so many people trying to have fun and looking like dorks in the process. It restores my faith in the human race.

Excellent post!
Reminds me of the Trachtenburg Family
Slideshow Players
, a Brooklyn couple and their
daughter who buy up old slide
collections at estate sales then make up songs that tell the stories behind the slides ("Mountain Trip to Old Japan, 1959").

I don't know which way to look.

Well, Astruc, there can only be one response...

Yeah, but are there any boobies?
