Accidental Mysteries

These photographs are just a few from a wonderful selection posted at a favorite blog called Accidental Mysteries. While the author, John Foster, covers a fairly wide range of cultural artifacts I tend to be most taken by his anonymous & vernacular photography collection and folk art. More of the former can be seen here... Surprise links if you click on the photos.

take me to the water....

Jim Linderman writes and edits several blogs, all dealing with anonymous photography, folk art, antiques and vintage graphics. I first heard of him, as a collector, while his first book " Take Me to the Water:Immersion Baptism in Vintage Music and Photography 1890-1950" was being designed locally by John Hubbard and Rob Millis. Produced by the essential label Dust to Digital, it has a mind boggling selection of images, as well as a great CD of gospel music and sermons, mostly from the South. Recently I've discovered several blogs maintained by him, all of which are indexed here... Evidently his visual interests spreads far and wide, and he is representing them all with regularity. The source links for the above images can be found by clicking on them
